Removing a grayscale area and adding spot color

You'll begin your work in spot color by changing the framework behind the woman to the spot color. You must first select the framework, remove it from the grayscale image, and then add the selection to the spot-color channel.

1 In the Channels palette, select the Gray channel.

2 Choose Select > Load Selection. In the dialog box, choose Woman from the Channel menu and select Invert. Click OK to load a selection of the framework behind the woman.

3 Choose Edit > Cut to cut the selection from the image. Make sure that black is set as the foreground color.
