Multichannel psd PLEASE HELP :)

OMG I am so freakin lost. I have never worked with a multichannel psd before, and don't even know where to start. It is a logo I need to place into another image. If i convert it to rgb or cymk the colors go crazy. I can't save it in anythign but eps or photoshop raw. Please Please if anyone knows what I can do here - I would so very much appreciate it.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN btw!!

Dawn

I've never dealt with them, but I just played around in PS and you could copy the channels to a new CMYK .psd. just grab each channel separately and drag them into the new CMYK file. Then select those channels' transparency and fill the actual CMYK channels respectively.

Hi Dawn.

I have never played with Multichannel either (Until you asked this question)

It appears that Multichannel in the same as CMYK but with the black (K) channel built into the CMY channels. So it is strange that you are getting crazy colours when you convert to CMYK.

My only suggestion would be to try ‘Image Analyser’ because this is how IA converts to CMYK.

I do understand that you may not want to post a sample but if you want to email it I will have a play with it.


Happy Halloween Everyone.

Ken

Re: Multichannel psd PLEASE HELP :)

Thanks for trying to help, ya'll.

Here is the thing. There are no C,Y,M,K or R,G,B channels. There are about 10 or so different channels and about 15-20 different paths. I don't even know where to start with the copying channels bit. The channels are named things like spot color 16 or white underlay, etc., and all refer to whatever part of the image is changed by that channel. If that makes any sense at all.

Where is Image Analyzer?

I am so totally lost on this. The only other copies he has of this are a tiny pdf and another tiny jpeg. I really need to get this worked out but just don't have a clue where to begin - aside from picking the collective brain of RTP. Thanks, guys! I appreciate your help very much!

Dawn

ugh... well, from what I've read, the only way you can do this is to make a new RGB or CMYK psd and create you own spot color channels... then copy it over one by one, to mimic the way the multi-channel document is structured.

Sounds like a lot of work, but I think it should work.

Hi Dawn.

Sorry I can’t help. Multichannel is used by printers. I think you will have to wait for a printer to reply.

Could you convert your other image to Multichannel?

Image Analyser is here.

But from your second post I don’t think it will help.


Ken.

Multichannel images are *not* CMYK or anything. They may contain arbitrary number of channels, controlling an arbitrary number of arbitrary inks. Speaking of this, the number of channels you mentioned looks too high for any reasonable output. I'm afraid something is wrong about it.

Multi Channels PSD cannot not be directly saved to JPG. They need to be converted to RGB format before saving it.

If you might had already tried some freeware you may had came to known that such freeware will change the color of your actual image.

However, here is the solution.

I had developed an application "PSD2JPG" which is specially designed for converting the multi-channel PSD to JPG by following the steps of mergeing channels.

The application is totally batch process and it uses photoshop only, so that you can assure that you will not loss your actual color of your photo.

You can view a demo of application at :

If you have any queries then directly contact me on:
that page.

Thanks
Gautam.
