Colour Separation Programs

  originalmiscellany 18:20 08 Dec 2004

I'm in a pickle...
I'm a teacher and use the Serif Programs - Webplus, PagePlus and Photoplus at school...
I could do with a program which colour separates into the component colours - CMYK - Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and something!

Is there any freeware computer program which can break a document down into four separate pages which can then be saved?

Does this make sense (I do hope so!)

GSP Designsworks does it but it's a old Program.The last update I had was GSP Power Publisher including Pressworks also the above for all desktop publishing

CMYK - Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, the something is probably Kelvin, which is the colour temperature.

I produced the following with IrfanView, a free program:

I think between Woodchip and Valvegrid, you've got it sussed. I'll give irfanview a go tomorrow and see if it's suitable. Thanks again

if it's not a dumb question, how did you achieve your results?

Sorry for the delay in answering, I've been watching the telly.

Not a dumb question at all. When you run the program, in the top menu bar click on Images then in the drop-down menu select Enhance colours and there are a set of slider controls to raise or lower the various colours. Although they are labelled RGB the opposite to these are YMC so you can add or subtract as you wish.

I wish it was as easy as that when I was setting up photographic printers and enlargers many years ago!

Serif PagePlus 9 can output colour separations in both "spot-colour" and "process colour i.e. cyan, magenta,yellow and black "
