    "Total Ink Preview" Profile

    fresh-prince

      hello,

       

      if you open a cmyk file in photoshop cc and click edit - convert to profile you now have the option to choose the device link profile "total ink preview".

      at first, I thought that it will do exactly what it says: to show the total amount of ink, but as far as I can see it doesn't.

       

      after converting, only the black channel is used and therefore there is now amount greater than 100%, which is definitly not the total amount of an "normal" image in cmyk.

       

      does anyone have a clue what that profile could be used for?

       

      thank you
