Pantone Project

Hi, I'm having trouble exporting my project. I would like to print it in Pantone, can I just save it in CMYK and give the printer the color code? Sorry if it's obvious, but I'm a beginner. I'd really appreciate any help.

@Natalia24735704mdoj Pantone (or other spot colors) would need to be setup in a spot channel unless this is a one color project.

With Pantone depricated in Photoshop, you can create you own custom spot channel and tell the printer to replace with the specific Pantone color. You can't give them a CMYK image and have them replace with a spot color.

Thank you very much! What if I need to print gray from the same black pantone color and I obtained it by reducing the opacity of black. Now splitting into channels my black and gray are no different. Can I somehow reduce the visibility of the gray channel or inform printing studio about it?

Please explain what you are trying to do exactly. 

Print a plain Duplex, 2C with black and a Pantone Color manually set-up, …? 

 

If you want to edit the process color parts (which would include standard black) or grayscale part you can edit them yourselves. 

 

Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Channels, Options Bar, …) visible?

Spot colors are an extra on press colour (in addition to CMYK) pre-mixed to match the swatch samples from a company such as Pantone. They are not meant to be modified using levels or curves. 

Here are the basics: https://www.shutterstock.com/blog/spot-colors-photoshop
