Simulating an image that is out of register
May 29, 2014 9:55 AM Subscribe
I have a JPG that I want to appear as if it is out of register. It's to depict the idea of something being counterfeit.
I have access to Photoshop and Illustrator. I've read up on channels and separations and I've managed to get a file with the CMYK separations (print to PDF with separations), but they're grayscale and I need to get the color back for each.
It would be ideal to use the channels in Photoshop and somehow make them layers. I've isolated the image from its background.
I want to end up with an image that looks poorly printed and out of registration. I need to do this to several images. Is there a quick and easy way to achieve this? Or, is there some other effect I can apply that will signify "counterfeit"? Thanks for your help.
