Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Separations panel, part of Illustrator: 2013 Creative Cloud Updates.
Much like InDesign, Adobe Illustrator has a Separations Preview Panel. …And it's had it for some time now. And the Separations Preview Panel …basically allows you to go in and take a look at what's called an Overprint …Preview, which gives you an idea of what certain inks will look like when mixed …together for commercial print. Now in this update for Adobe Illustrator, …they've actually added something to this panel which makes it a little easier to …understand all of the different things that are happening in your document when …it comes to color. So, let's take a look at that now. …I'm going to go up to the Window > Separations Preview and inside of the …Separations Preview panel you're going to notice that by default everything is …grayed out but, let's take a look at it first.…
So, I've got up here all the colors here. Cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, that of …course are the four process colors that are associated with commercial print. …I also have a list of all of the spot colors that are in this document. …
