Introducing YRGBK 2.3

Hi, I’m back, and am happy to bring you the latest updates to my color separation tools for Adobe Photoshop®.

With a major redesign of the main panel, core advances and fixes, the new version of YRGBK provides easier access to advanced options with improved performance and accuracy.

The redesigned interface puts the most common color separation adjustments in the first window, making the process more intuitive and manageable.


The Black, White and Gray sliders control how far into the colors the values print.  (These are the saturation mask settings from the last version) The values now go from 0 to 100, with higher values increasing the amount of overprint.

The Four color sliders provide control over the Density and Saturation, as well as the amount of color in Shadow and Highlight areas. Checking the Black, White, Color or Gray boxes opens the advanced settings for that option.


The Advanced options in the secondary dialogs have been retooled as well, with more control and new adjustments. The new Black Generator offers more control over the Saturation mask as well as custom color sliders to fine tune the adjustment.

The Color Generators New Transition Mask manages the mixing between colors for smoother transitions and softer blends. The Midtone adjustment and the Auto Option have been added as well, improving the fidelity of the image and the flexibility of the script.

Finally, the Gray Ramp is moved to a Gray dialog, which only displays when the Gray or Gray Component are being generated.

Between the main window controls and the advanced options windows, all the major variables in the color separation process can be adjusted.

It’s been an exciting process developing a script that offers quality and control up to my highest  standards. I am thankful to my many patient and generous supporters and sponsors.
