Hi. I have a design that I'm trying to get a good print of. Ideally, I'd like to do a solid Yellow, then apply the Red halftones on top of it. Trying to figure out the best way to separate it though (preferably in photoshop). Any suggestions?
i would worry about the red being influenced by the yellow under it and making orange if you used a solid yellow with red halftones - even after a flash. probably be better if you halftoned both the red and yellow in photoshop. if you dont know how, separate your colors and convert to greyscale, then change the image to a bitmap using halftones. fool with the lpi and dot counts to your liking and to suit mesh counts but i usually use 65 lpi and 22 degrees
Depending on how many pieces total you are printing and whether or not your customer needs every gradient to be exact, you might want to consider a 2 color blend instead of printing halftones. Just a thought...
i agree with kingscreen..just print it using blend..it will only use 1 screen for the job, better blending because you are actually blending the ink and not using halftones..watch this video it might help you..
