I’m trying to compare working spaces and their effect on final printed output. Specifically, I want to compare ProPhoto To Adobe RGB and compare ∆E of the final printed output on a high gamut glossy inkjet paper.
I expect big shifts in those colors that are outside of the Adobe RGB gamut but within my printer gamut.
However, I’m more interested in seeing how much ∆E occurs in those colors that are in gamut for both Adobe RGB and the printer profile. Basically, I am looking to see if the larger working space is a bad idea as a general working space and how much it will effect the “average” image. Adobe RGB clips a lot of blues, greens and other colors that my printer can print.
How do I set that up in ColorThink Pro? I tried starting with a downsized 729 color TIFF ProPhoto target and extracting unique colors. But, the Adobe RGB version (converted from ProPhoto to Adobe RGB in Photoshop) I imported has fewer unique colors than the ProPhoto version so my lists are different. I also tried using the color worksheet , chaining ProPhoto -> Adobe RGB -> Printer profile, but the color worksheet sees the 2nd conversion as a new workflow, instead of the third part of a chain.
