I know that most photos have some part with Out of Gamut colors not reproduceable by CMYK offset. And Photoshop says those colors will be clipped when converted from RGB to CMYK. I want to know what exactly Clipping means. What happens if I convert (using Relative color) and print the image with out of gamut colors? Will the out of gamuts look to totally different colors or do they squiz to the closest CMYK match? I am questioning whether it is necessary to painstakingly try to readjust each out of gamut colors for images that will end up on a catalog.
You may also want to test the Intent »Perceptual«, under which out of gamut colors get bunched into the smaller space; this may help maintain relevant contrast while but also affect colors that would not have been out of gamut.
Thank you for providing me a valuable link. I tried to read some of Bruce Fraser's articles but they are not opening. I don't know if my internet is acting up today or if I have to be registered on this site in order to read the articles. In any case, I will try to open it another time.
