How do I make images ready for silk screen printing?

Recommended Posts

Unless a lot has changed in PdN since I've been gone, no. You could try using some color channel plugins, but it'll probably take a bunch of legwork.


The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

I need to get some of the images for silk screen printing. I need to have the colors separated into different layers. Will I be able to do this in PDN?

Yes, the Extract Channel plug in can give you several channel options. For this I assume you would want CMYK, which this plug in does use. I hope you have it, it is in effects->color->extract channel. It may be part of one of the effect packs, explaining why I didn't find it in the plug in index. Add: Ah, the Ed Harvey Effect Pack for 3.5 has it.

Of course, you would need to copy the original image into the proper number of layers and then run the effect on each layer. It takes a minute or so for four color layers.
