Default Spot Color Separations in Photoshop

Here's part one where I touch on little things like workflow, a few shortcut keys and how to select the colors. There are also a few other tips in there for evaluating the file before you start, acceptable dpi, legal lines and vectored layers.

Here's part two where we make the base and choke it back, save the file as a DCS, set it up in Illustrator with reg marks and centerlines, colors and sequence and put back in our legal line and vectored text logo.

Hope you guys like 'em but grab a bucket of popcorn. They're long.

Thanks for sharing the great videos. Do you have ones that cover more complex (gradients, etc) separations using photoshop?
