I placed two copies of an image and set one to Perceptual and the other Rel Colorimetric and then used the softproof and gamut box.
What surprises me a little is that dark areas, as well as bright colours show as out of gamut.

The ugly one  is the profile for the cheap matte paper.  Percep and Rel C  Gamut is smaller
The good looking one is Ultra Luster profile with REL  C   intent and Perc

Old guy stories- Back in my darkroom days, black and white paper came in a plethora of surface finishes. Everything from sandpaper-like and canvas-like, to the well known glossy "F" surface that could be dried to a mirror-like finish on chrome plates. The maximum tonal range was always with the glossy finish because the blacks were blacker. Any other finish scatters light and the black isn't as black. If the paper used an off-white base, usually cream colored, that reduced tonal range even more. A canvas paper with a warm cream colored base was great for portraits and large prints, but a poor choice for most other things. My technical knowledge of color isn't as good, but no doubt saturation is affected the same way. Matte and many "fine art" papers won't produce the gamut range that a high gloss paper will. OTOH, it's horses for courses and you choose the paper for the effect you want, just being aware there are always trade-offs.  Cool

To continue this very helpful thread just a bit more, does anyone use Photo Lab Elite 3 as their processing software to then send to Qimage for printing?
Having a bit of a conundrum on the settings and would appreciate some guidance. Thanks.
