Hello,


I've got a real stupid question. In Photoshop, how do I separate colors so that each one is on a different layer? Do I have to manually lasso it with the selection wand? Or is there an easier way?

Thanks,

Not a stupid question.. I've always used the lasso.

You'd probably get a few more responses if you let us know what you're doing-- typically I'd build a graphic by using separated colors, not reverse-engineering it after the fact. Is it a photo?

Thanks...yes, it would probably help if I put what I am doing :eek:)

I bought vector art software. I'll use an example from that. Let's say I want to use the Chicago Cubs logo. Two colors...blue outlined in red. I'm having trouble getting the red outline separate and on its own layer. Hope this helps a little.

Thank you.

You can always copy and paste the elements seperately rather than as one whole logo, remember tho if you want to finally print two seperate colours in Photoshop you need to use Channels and not layers!
