        I'm not sure what you mean. The idea is to generate
an ICC profile that does gamut mapping from the smaller source
to the device gamut. Naturally this doesn't change the device
gamut itself, just the mapping.

You are confusing different things.

That depends rather a lot on what Photoshop is doing.

If the gamut you get from tiffgamut is large, then I'm more inclined to believe
