Alrighty, guys. In today's video, we're gonna be looking at creating some custom white and varnished channels within Photoshop. And this will be for flexi print. But before that, let's have a quick intro first. So today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. co dot Z A. We make sure we need to watch problem solving videos, and we also have the updates. Otherwise, we're back into the programme here. So now what I've done, I've simply just opened the actual, uh, I my graphics in Photoshop so you can go file open. Um, the layout. And that might look slightly different depending on the version you're using. I think I'm using the 21 or 22 version, but yeah. So what we're looking for, which is important, is our layers and channels. So on the left here, you can see I've got a tab called layers and one called channels. So as long as you have these two, you should be fine. Then over here, I've got the actual graphics I've opened. So I'm just gonna change this to all the graphics and then, uh, yeah, so at the moment, this is a PNG, As you can see, the background is transparent. So it's, um it's not a bit mad. Uh uh. JP is also not a SVG. The original was SVG, but then I've just, um, exported it as a PNG. Now what we wanna do, we're gonna keep it very simple. Like I said, we want a white and varnish channel. I'm gonna make it just a rectangle on the top here or circle or something like that. That's the only white one on the left. It's only varnish so we can see how this looks in the programme. So not to do that, I'm just gonna create a basic shape, which is a rectangle, and just draw a rectangle on the top right corner. Then it's gonna ask me under my properties, How do I wanna set this up? So I'm just gonna make this make the full white and then make the actual stroke Nothing. So it's just like that. That's what I'm gonna do, then here we go. We've got our rectangle. I'm gonna press enter just to make sure it confirms it and rename the file. It's just gonna double click the actual name and just call this white for now. Then what I'll do is with my rectangle selected. I'm gonna now make one on the opposite side and then str at how big we want it. Then I'm gonna change the full colour. Let's make it something like red or something or pink so we can see it is the, um, varnish. Uh, say to confirm that now what we wanna do. Uh What do you mean, rename this? Uh, we might varnish, then. Now we've got the varnish, and then we've got the actual, uh, what do you call it? White block. So now what I'm gonna do is the white. I'm gonna make the whole guy plus the block and the varnish, the whole guy, plus the red block over here. Now you can make it just that. Or just that. You know, you can set up exactly how you want with selection. Now, to do that, we wanna select this guy, make a selection of him so you can either right click the icon and then you go select pixels, and that is our one option we've got. And the other option is you keep controlling on your keyboard and you click on the little icon and you'll see it makes the marching ends here around our image. And then let's say we wanna have the white as well. I'm gonna keep control shifting. Select that. And then on the icon. Sorry. And then it makes a marching. And so now both of these are selected, and then the next step we wanna do is invert selection. So I'm gonna go, um, you can go select. You can go inverse from our main menu on top. Or what you can do is you can simply hit control shift I. I think it was. There we go. Now it's selected everything but these two graphics. Then next up, we wanna go to our channels tab and then at the bottom. Here we have this thing next to the dustbin, and that is to create a new channel. So I'm gonna simply click that you can see it made a channel for our actual, um, our layer and what I'm gonna do is with a paint bucket tool. Select it. I'm gonna make sure my, uh, foreground colour is set to white, as you can see there. And then I'm simply gonna paste it in on this channel to the foreground. Um oh, my layer is locked. Why is that? So let's just see what's happening. I'm not too sure why It's locking my layer. Let's try that again. There we go. Is that you simply select off and select back on. So now here we go. We've got our actual, um, white selected. So now we just wanna repeat the process and do that for the varnish. But keeping in mind, it is very important the naming system. So you wanna make sure you name this one to white? Otherwise, flexi print will not recognise it. So the next one I'm gonna just run through it quickly. As this video is getting a bit long, I'm gonna deselect everything, make a selection of the actual gremlin, make a selection of the varnish with shift select. Invert that or inverse it. Go to channels New channel. Now we're gonna do the same thing with a paint bucket, throw in the white, and then we're gonna call this one varnish, select in a presenter. Go back. So now we've got both of these. I can click on the R GB and hide those if I wanted to, But for now, I'm gonna keep them on, go to channels and now everything is ready for export. But before we export, we'll do that on another video, Seeing that this one is already running a bit long. Just a quick recap. So the important thing is, um, to make new layers for the white you want and use the selection and invert it. So you wanna basically everything you want to hide is white. It's kind of opposite to most channels and what you want to be. The colour is black and other important thing is make sure your names are exactly white and varnish. Otherwise, the programme will not be able to read it. Yeah, before we get to the file format, let's go to softwaretraining.co.za. co dot Z A where you can find a variety of different Softwares. We do cover and you can isolate your search. If you're looking for anything specific. If you do not find what you're looking for, go Yeah, request training video, fill in the mini form and then we'll do our best to try and make that for you.
