Tips, Tricks or Secrets to flatting in Photoshop?

Post by nemu » Tue Nov 13, 2007 4:46 pm

Hi all,

Kitsy is in the middle of a project so she asked me to see if anyone out there has any tips, tricks or secrets to flatting in photoshop?

I think she's tried the flattening plug-in but not sure if she liked it or not. Any tips would be appreciated!

The way I have been flatting is to by doing it on an alpha channel. Make sure you turn off anti-aliasing for whatever tool you're going to use to flat. By making your flats an alpha channel, you can switch from cmyk to the alpha channel by hitting apple-~ or apple-4 -- faster than switching layers.
