Gamut Mapping Options

Gamut Mapping Options

Summary

An ICC media profile contains information regarding the use of different types of gamut compression with different rendering intents. These rendering intent settings control how gamut mapping occurs. Gamut mapping is needed when dealing with pixels and elements in your files whose colors are not precisely reproducible on your printer using your inks and selected media. The amount of gamut compression that is required will vary from job to job. You may have a job where the colors in your job can be matched fairly closely while in another job you have colors that are very vivid and saturated and well beyond the capability of your printer to reproduce them accurately. Your selection of rendering intent and the gamut method used will impact how these colors are redefined in an attempt to improve reproduction accuracy.
