Lesson 16. Producing and Printing Consis... > Saving the image as a separation

Saving the image as a separation

In this exercise, you’ll learn how to save the image as a separation so that it can print out on separate cyan, magenta, yellow, and black plates.

1.
With 16Start.tif still selected, choose File > Save As.

2.
In the Save As dialog box, do the following:

  • Choose Format > Photoshop EPS.

  • Under Color, select the Use Proof Setup: Working CMYK check box. Don’t worry about the save-a-copy warning icon that appears.

    Note

    These settings cause the image to be automatically converted from RGB to CMYK when it is saved in the Photoshop Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) format.

  • Accept the filename 16Start.eps, and click Save.

3.
Click OK in the EPS Options dialog box that appears.

4.
Save and then close the 16Start.tif and 16Start copy.tif files.

5.
Choose File > Open, navigate to the Lessons/Lesson16 folder, and select and open the 16Start.eps file.

Notice in the image file’s title bar that 16Start.eps is a CMYK file.
