good day to you and how you be everybody this is general still here welcome to dying today we're going to talk about how to separate CMYK we're gonna go to Photoshop to show you the whole process so killer montage [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] [Applause] what we're gonna do now we're gonna go to file and we're gonna open up the image that you want to work on so let's do this so this is the file here I had a vectorize that image and some of the words were distorted so what I did was I took to all the whole whole hair or black cover every word that is said and I we did all those words so so you could come out nice and sharp so now we have the image here what we're gonna do is convert into CMYK the way you do that is you go to image mode and go to CMYK color click on that press ok now you go to channels and you're gonna see hey yang magenta yellow and black already on CMYK color so the first one you're gonna work on this Cayenne when you go to K yeah and you're gonna take it o marquee tool and you're gonna make sure you copy the whole page edit copy we're going to go to file new make sure it's the same size as your image and name it Cayenne so you could know when you're printing the film what film is that press ok now you're gonna come put it in the side now you're gonna come edit and you're gonna paste in eyespace now once you pace now is already ready to get halftone the way you do have tone is you go to image mode and bitmap once you're back map is gonna ask you to fly an image okay make sure the output is 300 and in the bottom method use you wanted to say halftone screen press ok now here's the thing with frequency the frequency is all about what measure you're using if you're using a 160 mesh or 230 mesh of 300 match you take that number of that mentioned divided by five some people divided by four you decide what works best for you what works best for me is dividing it by five so once you divide it by 5 I get 16 that's frequency that will stay for the other rest of the colors now in angle the angle that I choose is an angle that I saw on a video that I learned and once I got his numbers and I did it it was all my CMYK they come out really really nice so the the angle for each color is gonna be different like 4k Yan is gonna be 15 for magenta is gonna be 75 for yellow is zero and black is 45 so that's what we're gonna do right now – step by step so here we have KN the angle is 15 is gonna ask you run our lips you either use ellipse or round I prefer around I like round so then I come and press okay and now is already a halftone color so you only have to layer so now you come back to the original lay your original image then you're gonna go to magenta and you're gonna see you're gonna go you're gonna follow the same process you're gonna go to edit and you're gonna copy you're gonna go to file you're gonna say new you're gonna make sure that is click on the right and then make sure you name it and this one is not jumped up press okay now you're gonna come and move it over here and go to edit and paste now we have the magenta now remember once you're paste then you go to image and we're gonna have torn it by clicking on bitmap gonna say yeah make sure it's 300 have told okay 60 now the angle changes now because we're using magenta and magenta like I said we're gonna use 75 for the angle so let's click on 75 keeping around okay and it's already half tone now you come back to your ear you do the same thing yellow it's already click gonna add it copy go to file new make sure that it's the same size and name it we working on yellow which is grayscale click OK movie you to the side now we're gonna click on edit and we're gonna paste now it's paly gonna now have taught it by going an image mode image mode oh man I don't know what's going on bitmap okay free hugs we have tones in process now we're gonna change the angle and we said that yellow is zero so we're gonna click on 0 keep the route okay there it is away come back over here and let's finish it off with black you're gonna go to edit copy file new open up a new layer and we're gonna name it black black make sure the rescue okay now we're gonna move it over here and same thing we're gonna go to edit and we're gonna paste what's-his-face image no we're gonna have turn this black okay 300 same thing and the frequency here now for black is 45 so let's click on 45 keep it round and okay so there goes oh you'll have tone colors you got black yellow magenta cyan now we're gonna go print them on the film expose them on the screen register them and check out how the process go let's see how this baby comes up so let's do this phil's all printed check them out and if your printer didn't tell you what what color it is every time they comes out you gotta make sure take a little marker and write it down so you can know what fill color gold black yellow magenta and cayenne write them down so like that you know when you set them up on your screen you know what color goes and that's on that screen that's very crucial that you make sure that that fill i yang you putting that Cayenne ink on that so let's go to the darkroom and expose these films or let's do it all right screen is all dried up already want to come to the light I want to show you what I have told stands to looks like check it out real nice or the details on the money here's the first screen I'm gonna go watch the other three screens stay tuned to next week next week we'll set up the hall for the other three screens we set them on a press and I also want to talk about how to watch these half-tones it's different than the regular stencils solid um stencils have told us a little more different you have to be careful on the timing and how much water they'll take you also get all destroyed we're going to talk about that next week and the things that you gonna need so if you like this video press that like button if you haven't subscribed yet
