Is it possible to export a logo in illustrator to a photoshop file, while still preserving the original pantone colors of the logo?

    That's a good question.  But, no.  Photoshop will open the file as a CMYK file conversion.  What should happen is Photoshop honors the Spot Color channels established in Ai; in that scenarion you'd get your typical CMYK color channels and then additional color channels for the Spot Colors.  That's too much work for a software application.  But, I have to be honest.  I've never Exported a Spot Color file out of Ai and into PS.  I'm thinking you have to do it manually, perhaps creating a file for each Pantone color and then adding them into PS as additional Spot channels.
