Glossary of Printing Terms:
Process Color Separations

The process of separating the primary or process colors from a colored image.

The separation is done by means of red, green, and blue filters in a process camera or color scanner which produce four continuous tone negatives.

There is one for each of the primary colors used in the printing process: cyan, magenta, yellow. Black is also added to give definition to the printed piece.

The separations are screened and printing plates are made from them.
