While softproofing, there's a small option to the top right of the histogram that shows what colors are out of the gamut that the printer can print.
So, what if a chunk of the image is shown under this warning but I still send it to print? What would come out on those areas instead - would the printer intelligently manage? Is it a necessity to reduce saturations so as to minimize the gamut warning? In short, what is the whole point of this thing?
I assumed that the whole point of soft proofing was that we could edit while getting a preview of what we would finally see in print. So my doubt is - are the highlighted areas those adjusted by LR to make them look as they'd turn out on print - Like is it the same way the printer would manage? Or is it that something needs to be done about these areas.
The perceptual intent rendering is actually done on the image or is it just for the preview?
My question is more of a practical one, because my budget allows only a single print review.
Is it better to leave an image with a lot of gamut warnings as it is, rather than desaturating to almost making it B&W?
