A unique and powerful technique for using a Lab image and Photoshop 5 to visualize your printer's gamut, the GamutView kit is free to download and use.

Photoshop 5 and 6 have the ability to mark the colors in an image that will not properly print on your CMYK printer. If an image is chosen that displays all possible colors and the Gamut Warning feature of Photoshop is activated, the resulting image clearly shows the colors your printer will output: your printer's gamut.

The kit includes a 7 page PDF file and image and action files to clearly show this remarkable technique. Photoshop 5 or 6 is the only tool required by you. Instructions are for Photoshop 5 but can be easily applied to Photoshop 6.
