This is a very short vid tutorial for those who have had separations done on the outside (to a freelancer) or art house, and your original art given to them by the customer had a flat background on it. Maybe all that you might get back are the separations but you also need a merged version with no background. Let's assume you need to create an art proof on the garment you will be printing on.

I show you how to reengineer a sim process separations file back into an RGB file that can then be saved as a PNG. You then open your garment image and placed over the photo of a garment or multiple garments for art proofs/mock ups to the customer without a background.

Dan, that is just what I needed.  I've had several times that the RGB Channels had been deleted and the customer wanted to see what it would look like on another garment.  I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to get that to him..  Thanks for sharing.
It's not a job if you love doing it.

I've always just deleted the background on the original RGB to make mockups easier, though I knew there was a better way, just too busy to work it out, and now I feel a little dumb, because there it is, not all that difficult. Thanks Dan...

Hey Dan this looks like it would work for a DTF halftone print since it's a png file, when you have time send me a file with a color halftone, I would like to see if I can print it out as a DTF, gonna try and fellow your vid and see if I can do this.
Life is like Kool-Aid, gotta add sugar/hardwork to make it sweet!!

Not a problem. Will do this weekend.   That is, how I needed up doing my DTG prints that I wanted to look like screen printing with halftones.
