Lesson 13. Preparing Images for Two-Colo... > Removing spot color from a grayscale...

Removing spot color from a grayscale area

Now, you’ll remove some spot color where it overlaps the grayscale area of a second layer of the image.

1.
In the Layers palette, click the box to set an eye icon () next to the Hammers layer to make it visible. (Click just the box to set the eye icon. Do not select the layer.)

Notice that the spot color of the framework overlaps part of the Hammers layer. You’ll remove this overlap by making a new selection and cutting it from the spot-color channel.

2.
Choose View > Show > Guides.

3.
Select the Rectangular Marquee tool ( ), and make sure that Normal is selected in the tool options bar.

4.
Drag a selection across the image, from one edge to the other and from the top edge to the uppermost horizontal guide.

5.
Make sure that the spot-color channel in the Channels palette is still active, and press Delete to remove the rectangular selection from the channel. In the image window, the spot color disappears from the hammers image.
