Gamut Comparison - CMYK

SmartNote: 422
Type: TechTip
ColorGeek factor: unrated
This is a relative gamut size comparison of Adobe RGB(1998), ColorMatch RGB, and a CMYK press with coated and uncoated paper.

Note how the gamut size of the press is so different with a simple paper-type change. With uncoated it fits entirely inside the gamut of ColorMatchRGB but with coated paper the gamut is large enough that Adobe RGB(1998) may be a more appropriate working space.

This plot was made using GretagMacbeth's Profile Editor 3.0.
