    I have a JPG file with a logo consisting of four spot (flat?) colors (if white counts as a color). I need to be able to do a color separation for screen printing. I think I need to put each color into its own layer but I have no idea ow to do that. My S/W is Adobe CS4. Can anyone tell me how to do that - I have virtually no familiarity with Photoshop (or any of the CS4 programs). Thank you.

    I'm not 100% sure of what you are trying to accomplish with the end result, but to create layers of color you would need to remove the color from each spot then add a new layer and put the color on that layer behind the space you just cleared that color from the spot and do that for each individual color or put them all on that layer.
