    when I click on gamut warning nothing happens

      When I click on gamet warning nothing happens, no table opens on the screen (I'm new at this)  does it only work when I'm in RGB not after I've converted to CMYK?

          Hi

           

          Gamut warning is designed to show you what colours are currently being used in your image that will be out of the gamut (i.e. not available in another colour space.) If you have already converted the image then it will not show anything.

           

          There are two steps to using it

           

          1. In View - Proof Set Up - choose the colour space you want to check against (this could be a CMYK space - or a printer profile)

           

          2. Switch on gamut warning. Any colours in the current  image that will be out of gamut when changed to the proof space will be highlighted (see grey in image below)

            Once you convert to CMYK, all the colors will automatically be in gamut, and therefore there will not be any gamut warning.

              I am getting the greyed out areas when I click on gamut warning in RGB.  In some cases they are pretty significant.  But when I convert those largely out of gamut files to the CMYK printing profile (Japan Color 2001 Coated) OR choose MODE > CMYK for proofing, the file looks identical to the original RGB file.

               

              Help?

               

              Thanks!

                It may be that the colors are only slightly out of gamut and the difference is not very noticeable. Instead of gamut warning, try using View > Proof Colors on/off. Or Image > Duplicate, put the two images side by side and turn on Proof Colors on just one of them. You will probably see at least a subtle difference.
