Gamut warning, the hopecrusher of printed images!
show user profile  moonraker808
So I spend around 8 or 9 hours on my digital painting for my sweet heart; and I finally get an image to which I am happy with. One I am sure won't end with me getting a slap in the face haha; but being me, I wanted to do a nice glossy printout of my image; maybe do a sweet little message on the back, something nice. So I do a gamet test, as any reasonible painter would do; I was so sure that every color I picked was within gamet range that I got over confident.

It turns our destructive tools like the burn tool can cause a color that is out of the gamet range and thus cannot be printed. Because there is gray portions all over the hair of the image. My question is, would there be a simple wait to merely change it to the closest resembling color so it wouldnot look un natural and ruin the over all look of the image? I am a tad bit desperate here, I really on't want to strt from scratch and I am really kicking myself for not checking until this far in.

use photoshop > save for web > check the box somewhere that says something about converting it to RGB something or other > save the file as whatever file type you want > profit

Convert to CMYK yourself and color correct till it looks ok in photoshop with the photoshop proof colors turned on.

If it looks ok there then it should look fine printed.

if it doesn't, it's your printers fault.
