The problem of working in a large color space such as Bruce is that you can
select and edit a ton of colors which have no printing equivalent. By using
ColorMatchRGB, you are assured that the majority of your RGB colors will
find equivalents when printed with CMYK inks. Otherwise, you end up editing
a lot of high key colors, working careful color contrasts in high key areas,
and none of it translates. This is why professionals who print in CMYK
restrict their RGB color gamut to that which can be printed. Otherwise
you're trying to get a huge whale to swim in a tiny pool.....
This advice appears both practical and clear; a simple truth that will make our printing lives
more workable. I would like to get a more in depth understanding of profiles and how to use
*What is the best way to set up your monitor (Windows in my case) in the control panel?
*When is a profile to profile conversion called for?
*If we're working in ColorMatch and use the Cone profile in Space during printing, is a
profile to profile conversion taking place thru the driver? If not, what is happening here?
*How do the other color spaces...AdobeRGB, CALRGB etc...? stack up in terms of gamut
and their relationship to the final CMYK Epson print
*Who do you know who has written a clear, concise description of the relationship between
profiles and Space with guidelines on how to use them.
I feel somewhat limited in the conversation about color, somewhat blind for that matter,
because I'm talking about something I don't know how to see. This is a very important
subject to master and the prospect of understanding color space and its applications is very
enticing indeed. Actually, with all the confusion about color space and profiles, I consider it a
miracle that any prints turn out satisfactorily at all.
