    Gamut warnings in soft proofing

    Alp Er Tunga Level 1

      As far as I know, monitor gamut warning (blue) shows the colors that are inside the file but outside the display color space (the profile of my computer display) ... and the destination gamut warning (red) shows the colors that are inside the file but outside the destination color space (the printer profile selected).

       

      If the information given above is correct ... let me ask the following question.

       

      When I select sRGB as the destination profile, destination gamut warning shows (in red) a lot of colors to me, so I know that my file has so many colors which are outside the sRGB.

      sRGB is also the profile of my display ... but the monitor gamut warning does not show (in blue) anything, it does not paint even a single color.

      I was thinking that ... if I select the profile of my display in the "profile" section of soft proofing, both gamut warnings should paint the same colors in the file ... but this is not the case.

       

      I could not understand the logic of monitor gamut warning ...

      Any help?

       

      Thanks in advance ...
