Photoshop CC 2015 Update - White Base & Highlight Issue & Fix

Example of separation where the highlight white is damaged and is covering just about everything.

The separation above was run using a freshly updated and installed copy of Photoshop CC 2015 affected by the bug. This is the update which adds the new Start Workspace interface to Photoshop when no documents are open. (See below)

When running separations with UltraSeps using Photoshop CC 2015 and possibly future versions yet to be released, some of the white underbase and highlight white channels may not render correctly.

This is a bug with CC 2015 and may also be an issue with versions going forward.

I’ve traced this bug to an issue with the manner in which Photoshop CC 2015 generates its Preferences File. It seems as though the Preferences has a glitch whereas certain functions of JavaScript’s do not run correctly and causes some sort of confusion with the foreground and background colors.

Running our Repair CC 2015 Action resolves this abnormality and after doing so, all separations will render correctly. Its important to note that if ever resetting the Preferences due to some other issue, this Action will need to be run again.

Therefore, if separations don’t appear correctly with odd looking underbase whites and dark highlight whites with ink where none should be, simply run the Repair CC 2015 Action to fix.

The Action will prompt you to open the Space Shuttle sample file included with the Action.
Its also included with UltraSeps.

To use, simply load the Action into the Actions Panel of Photoshop and run.

I’ll also be placing a video here shortly which not only discusses how to use but also provides an example of the issue itself before and after the simple fix.

If Photoshop appears similar to this once launched, you'll know the latest update as
of 12/15/2015 has been installed.

This somewhat annoying feature can be turned off through the Preferences settings if desired.
