Now you are not limited to screen colors in your output... if you wish to see which of your print colors are outside of your monitor gamut, convert your image to the printer profile, then use the View> Proof SetUp> Custom option to choose the monitor profile to proof to, then select the View> Proof Colors, and Gamut Warning settings, to show which colors are not accurately displayed on screen. I find my 22" Cinema Display reaches many of the greens, cyans, and yellows a CRT misses, and in return misses a few of the deepest blues. The New CinemaHD 23" loses a bit in the most saturated greens and instead offers deeper reds and blues; a truely impressive gamut, and amazingly detailed as well, with the finer pixels. C.
