Hello c:

 

I got a drawing I already made with the colors I want (I used the hex-code for the pantone colors). Now I want it in the pure pantone colors for print, black and pantone 328 u.

 

Is there a way to convert it?

The image posted is a .png so the original CMYK channels have been converted to RGB.

Photoshop has very little support for pantone inks. You can convert to a duotone, in which case you will need to first Image > Grayscale and then Image > Duotone. But that won't give you seaparate black and pantone 328 inks. To do what you want, you will need to set up the pantone inks as spot colors in the Channels panel. There are some tutorials on the web explaining how to do that. This is one of them and there are others, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sddPWRJa5WI

Learn how to work with Spot Colour Channels in Photoshop. The image will be used in an ad in InDesign which prints in two spot colours rather than in CMYK.

If you have Adobe Illustrator, the process would be much easier to do and easier to edit if needed.
