Photoshop :: Grayscale Files To Separate Color Channels

May 12, 2008

I have a set of grayscale images that I want to combine such that each image becomes a color channel...


Photoshop :: I Want Grayscale, But I Still Need My RGB Channels

Jun 10, 2007

I need to convert an image to Grayscale in CS2, but I need to retain my RGB channels. I need them because a special bump map tool that I have, which also converts images to DDS format, requires them. And I need to make my bumpmaps with this tool because of the special format that dds files require for the game I am using these textures in.

I've been using the Photocopy filter, but I feel it leaves the image a bit "dirty." I'd like a clean Grayscale conversion.

Photoshop :: Which Color Mode In CS4 Is Best To Use For 2-color Project / Grayscale Or CMYK

Mar 21, 2012

The project is a photo montage. It was 4-color, now must become 2 colors. So I've changed each of the original 4-color photos (jpg and eps) into separate psd files (as grayscale/duotone/montage-and assigned it One pantone color)
In a new psd "montage"  file, I plan to place each photo on its own layer, adjust tints, transparency, etc, to  create one new montage/flattened.I'm not sure which color mode is best when setting up this new file, CMYK or grayscale?
Once the PS  doc is done, the job will be saved as a PDF for 2-color printing.I want to insure the 2 pantone colors separate properly at press.

Photoshop :: Convert Color Picture To Grayscale And Another Color

Oct 1, 2005

I have a color picture, and I want to convert it to B&W, and then I want to add another color to it (for example red). I dont want to paint some areas in it, I want for example to keep all the red parts of the picture, or only part of the red parts.

It something like in the movie Schindler's List, in the B&W scene where you see a little girl with red coat.

Photoshop :: Convert Grayscale To One Color?

Feb 24, 2006

I'm attempting to convert a grayscale image into a one-color (preferably black) image for screen printing on a white background. I was thinking something along the lines of gradient created with different-sized black dots?

Photoshop :: 4 Channels Files Per Pic + Preview File

Feb 24, 2004

I've got a folder containing 170 pics. They are all DCS 1.0 files which means that folder actually contains 850 items (4 channels-files per pic + preview file).

I need to open each one of 170 pics and save them as EPS (either binary or JPEG - doesn't matter). If I try to automate it, it actually tries to open every channel instead of opening only the preview file.

Photoshop :: Spot Color In Grayscale File

Feb 18, 2007

I'm looking for help to assign spot color (some at 100%, others as tints) of a single PMS color into selected areas of grayscale images. I understand how to use the spot color channel but I don't know how to assign tints of my color. When I import the images into InDesign, the color swatches show various instances of my PMS color and when I get ready to package the InDesign file, it shows duplicates of the color. Don't I need all instances of the single PMS color to separate onto one plate, while the black (and its tints) separate to another? I want a two-color end result.

Photoshop :: Missing Color Channels / Can Image Be Corrected

Mar 19, 2012

The pictures came out fine. But then I upgraded to a (then) newer version of ACDSee, and the first time I opened the folder with these pictures in them, ACDSee turned them all magenta. ACDSee claims that this is impossible – but I assure you it happened...
I’ve posted one of the pictures here, including a screen shot of the Info pallet while the cursor is over an area of the image. As you can see, there isn’t any info for the yellow or black channels.
My question is – is there any hope for restoring the proper color to these images? I‘ve played around a bit with Curves, Hue & saturation, etc.  -  but getting natural color has eluded me. [URL]

Photoshop :: Histogram In PS4 Displaying Color Channels Instead Of Luminosity

Jan 9, 2009

Recently I noticed the histogram in PS4 displaying color channels instead of luminosity. And all three RGB colors seem to spike off the top of the window. Is there a way to only display the luminosity histogram curve? Also, how often would be considered normal to have to re-set preferences?

Photoshop :: Exporting Spot Color Channels As Paths With Fill To Illustrator

Mar 17, 2003

I need to send vectorized art to this company that only uses Illustrator. I have never used or even opened Illustrator. Ok, I'm very familiar with Freehand so I get the basic idea about vector. I have a 3 color logo that I have saved as a Photoshop DCS .eps file with the channels saved as spot colors so I can print separations with Pantone colors. According to what I have translated from the Photoshop guide what I need to do is figure out how to get my clipping paths of each channel to retain its fill when I export paths to Illustrator. I've tried and when I open the vectorized paths in say Freehand there is only lines and no fills. Do you guys have any ideas on how I can get these file seperations to this company with Illustrator?

Photoshop :: How To Take A Grayscale Image, & Automate The Match Color Process W/multiple Colors

Jul 15, 2009

how to use the match color tool to automatically convert one grayscale image into multiple output images based on a collection of color swatches? Or a better process to achieve this automated?

I have all the swatches in psd files in one directory. I can do them one-by-one but I was wondering if there was a way to automate this process and have it spit out and save the different images automatically based on the saved swatch colors.
