The 0-60 Photoshop course on separations is a clear, step-by-step process for you to learn the four main separation methods in Photoshop. This course includes a breakdown of Spot Colors, Index Colors, 4-Color Process, and Simulated Process separations. You will also learn how to estimate colors, set up separations in Photoshop as a digital proof so you can troubleshoot your separations before you even print a positive or burn a screen. This course is the culmination of over 20 years of screen printing separation knowledge that has been distilled down into a manual system that you can use when you have to separate a bitmap image in Photoshop.
This course started with in-person consultation training and the most common requests were for more breakdowns of the four main separation methods that could be broken down into STEP-BY-STEP processes that could be experienced and practiced at an individual student's pace. With this course the next level of interactive and paced out, STEP-BY-STEP training will be available to members with improved videos, practice artwork, and individual attention for questions and answers.
Each class session will include a monitored and private Facebook group that will allow for discussion of tasks, jobs, and business questions that may be outside of the regular course training. The friends and associations that can be made from this private group can provide ongoing benefits to students long after they have completed the training.
The Photoshop 0-60 separation course for screen printers is comprised of modules that cover different levels of art complexity in each of the four separation methods:
Spot color separations
Index color separations
4-Color Process separations
Simulated Process separations
will be four main separation divisions covering the top ways of
separating in Photoshop (Spot color, Index color, 4-Color process, and
Simulated Process). Each type of separation will be broken down to show
the SYSTEM that will make that process consistent and how to modify/prep
artwork for each style. The practice files are included so students can
follow along and separate the files using each method. The course shows
STEP-BY-STEP processes on how to separate images for each type of
separation style and EXPLAINS why you should use each different style of
separation on different types of artwork and/or for screen printers
with different capabilities.
Each student will graduate the course with their permanent access to all video lessons, practice files, and on-going access to the private Facebook group. Every student will also have a premium seat for any new course or content.
Here's some comments from several of the course students about training with Thomas Trimingham:
training course! I have learned more in the first video than in the
last two classes I did at last year's show. Thanks a lot!
I finally feel like I can handle images in Photoshop for my company. Appreciate the knowledge.
Thanks for taking extra time so I could understand each area. I learn a little slower but with it broken down I got it to work!
Hi there! My name is Tom and I am a screen printing artist, instructor, separator, and author that lives in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. Over the past 27 years I have worked with all manner of screen printing shops across the country as a consultant, art director, head of research and development, and high-end separator. From small mom & pop operations to some of the worlds largest printing shops, I have been an Art Director, High-End Separator, and Head of R&D. During this time I also worked at the Illinois Institute of Art teaching classes on drawing and design. These days I have also been working and developing skills in marketing and management which is one of the most common requests from small businesses. I have been writing for the screen printing industry for over 18 years with over 160 published articles. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family and our crazy pets, or teaching / practicing martial arts and fitness.
