  • Manually separated

    I am patting myself on the back today after manually separating from scanned negs. My client only had an old set of separated negs that had been used in the past to create his logo. No original art and no digital files.

    The problem was that the art was 2 color, partially a screened grayscale and partially solid color.

    The headache was separating the grayscale that was tightly registered to the solid color fonts. Ugh! and then blurring the grayscale without affecting anything else so that it wouldn't get a moire effect. To top it off, the grayscale then had a second grayscale gradient in another color to tint over the black.

    Anyway, after 3 hours, I managed to get all separated and registered and ready to go to a digital rip for re-screening.

    I like challenges and puzzles, but this one will keep me for a while.

    Could you have scanned the stuff in, then just re-drawn them in Illustrator?

      this is how EVERYTHING was done in the old days. Took DAYS for jobs to get completed, and that was after approval!
