    What is color clipping

    generalbatzorig Community Member

      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.
