It is amazing that you could do this with 6 colors. Looks like much more at first.. Good use of the shirt color.

Dang. What did I miss? I only see Black, Creme, Blue, Neon Green, Tan and Gold on a Cardinal shirt.

If you look in the shadows near the hand there is also a brown. Either that's an additional color or a transparency (because that definitely doesn't look like the cranberry shirt), neither of which can be done.

There's not really a brown a in there. The hand and mouse is all black, gold, creme and olive (as opposed to 'tan'). I'll double check everything, but I don't see the brown you mention - an artifact of producing the low res rgb jpg perhaps?

That could be it. You may want to create a crisper view from your print ready and post it in here.

I suppose I would bother if there was any real interest in this, which there isn't. I did check and couldn't find any color variation in my original layers except a few green pixels in my black layer, which I thought I had flushed. I usually flush each layer in my print ready by selecting the transparent, inverting the selection and then filling the interior of each layer with it's intended solid color. I did this again to be sure and there is no discernible difference from the original.

If you use photoshop you could also use layer effects to overlay a solid color. Much faster. ^_~
