Rearranging and renaming channels

The default color channels normally appear at the top of the Channels palette, followed by the spot color channels, and then the alpha channels. You cannot move or rename the default channels, but you can rearrange and rename spot and alpha channels to suit the way you work.

Spot colors are overprinted in the order they appear in the Channels palette. To change the order of alpha or spot channels:

Drag the channel up or down. When a line appears in the position you want, release the mouse button.

Note: You can move alpha or spot channels above the default color channels only if the image is in Multichannel mode.
