Color spaces

Color spaces describe the spectrum of color shades portrayed through red, green, and blue and the hues between, which are based around pure white. Cameras, printers, and monitors are capable of recording or outputting only a small portion of this space, known as the color gamut. Colors that fall outside of this are termed as being out of gamut and are either substituted for the nearest in-gamut shade or removed by the device. Problems can arise when a photo is in one color space but the output device is in another, in which case the translation of color can cause the image to show odd results. It’s a little like asking someone to give you a number between 1 and 20, but he or she chooses 35. By matching color spaces among the photo, Elements, and the printer, you have a far better chance of getting a faithful reproduction in print.
