Glossary of Printing Terms:
Separations

Refers to four single-color images generated by separating a color image into its cyan, magenta, yellow, and black components.

Separations are produced with the use of a process camera and the appropriate filters (red, green, and blue; the primary colors of light).

When a red filter is used, the red light is filtered out, leaving green and blue which combine to form the cyan image.

The green filter produces a magenta image, and so on. There are computer programs which will also accomplish this.
