    Hi, how do I create spot colours in photoshop as I need to add a Gold & a silver?

    Use the “Channels” pallet to create spot colours in Photoshop.
    Starting with either a greyscale or CMYK file, go to the dropdown menu on the channels pallet and select “New Spot Channel…”, this will bring up a dialogue box where you can give the colour a name and choose a colour to represent it on screen.

    When you save the file, it is best to use “Photoshop DCS 2.0” as a format. That way the extra channel will be treated as a spot colour in whatever page layout software you are using.

    Good luck
