    Unless you created a spot channel in Photoshop and colored parts in the spot channel, you will not have anything separating on the spot channel.

    Jeffrey is correct. If you're in CMYK mode, and you choose a Pantone swatch, it immediately is converted to CMYK. (The same is true in RGB mode: It converts to RGB.) Creating a Spot Channel on the Channels palette is the only way to retain spot colors.

    Well, almost the only way. The other way is to create a duotone using a spot color.
