Production of a different plate or screen for each color to be printed.
The act of converting an RGB color image into CMYK color image. The act of color separation is a technical function during which critical press specific settings such as GCR, black ink limit and total ink limit are applied to the image. If an image is already CMYK it would be described as being already color separated and would not need to be separated again.
In screen-printing, the pre-press process during which each individual color in the art is isolated for creation of its own stencil. In process-color printing and digital printing, the image is divided into separate stencils for yellow, magenta, cyan, and black. Although the process of making color separations used to be done manually or using colored negatives or filters, today the job is relegated to the computer, which also generates color separations for large-format imaging.
The process of separating full-color originals into process colors (cyan, magenta, yellow and black) for printing. Separations are used to make film, which is subsequently used to make the printing plates that actually apply the inks on a press.

The process of turning a digital file into the necessary primary printing components (CMYK or spot colors).
The process of separating colored originals into yellow, magenta, cyan and black printing negatives. Mostly done on computer controlled scanners.
The color component of a digital print original which corresponds to a color in multicolor printing. The most popular four-color printing process is the CMYK color model which requires four separations in the colors cyan, magenta, yellow and black to produce the corresponding printing plates. The color separations that together form a complete color original are known as a color set.

The record may be a photographic film made through the red, green, and blue separation filters or a computer file. A set of four separations, cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, are required to reproduce an original color image, since each of the four process colors must be represented. The separations may be made photographically using traditional methods or digitally using electronic scanners and computer programs.
