Re: filmscanners: Re: filmscanners: Does CMM work on Win2000?

Qualification first - I don't know for a fact that only colors strictly
within the sRGB gamut can be displayed, but that is generally the case.

Answer to the question - Photoshop cannot display those colours.  A monitor
cannot display colours that it cannot display.  What Photoshop and similar
programs do for non-sRGB colour gamuts is to alter the viewable colours so
that they coincide with what the output (print, film, etc.) will be like,
and then of necessity alter the non-viewable colours so that they are
viewable, to the closest color displayable by the monitor.  You will get an
impression of what the result will be - you will not see the actual result
until it is printed to paper, film, or whatever.

Photoshop et.al., when showing color in another color space, will show you
how the colors relate to, or compare to each other, in that color space,
even though all of the colors in that color space are not viewable onscreen.
