I have a color swatch project that will be printed on an offset press, using the GRACoL profile. I know the LAB value for each. I want to eliminate the obviously out of gamut ones now, before working on the layout. I've got a program that can give me a delta E for each, but I have to choose
Any advice? I know that Rel is a good all-purpose rendering intent. But I'm wondering if this might be a case where Abs. is the way to go. I'm not interested in shifting or tweaking or compressing in order to shoehorn every swatch into the project - if it is out of gamut I simply want to eliminate it, I'll still have plenty of others to work with.
I'd use the settings you'll use to convert the data (or Absolute). If you do any conversions in Photoshop, make sure Dither is off.
