Make unavailable filters available in CMYK mode (7/CS/CS2)

Added on Thursday 22nd of June 2006 06:42 am EST


Adobe Photoshop 7/CS/CS2

Operating Systems:

Macintosh, Microsoft Windows


We’ve come to accept the fact that not all Photoshop filters are available for use in all color modes. When working in CMYK mode, there’s significantly less filter magic available for your images as shown in Figure A. But don’t overlook the versatility of channels. You can apply those unavailable filters to your CMYK images—but the trick is to do it one channel at a time.




To apply unavailable filters to your images one channel at a time:

1.   Open the Channels palette.

2.   Select the Cyan channel.

3.   Choose the Filter menu to reveal the previously unavailable filters as shown in Figure B.
