I've come across various explanations as to why softproofed images look too yellow on a display, but the explanations were all different, and I found none of them completely convincing. And in developing a softproofing product, we didn't notice such an effect. When we got the XYZ numbers to match, the display was an extremely close match to the print. Trying to softproof on a display showing other elements that have a white that is not the same as the softproof paper color will certainly not work - you're eye will be in a mixed state of adaptation at best. > I don't use ProPhoto because its gamut is way bigger than both my monitor's > and printer's gamut, and so I think it's more likely to cause me problems > than help me produce a good print. Any super-large gamut space has to be treated with caution. If you convert from it and take the full colorspace as the source gamut, you will end up with a terrible result. Graeme Gill.
