When you use the command Gamut Warning (View ^ Gamut Warning), Photoshop overlays your image with a nonprinting color to indicate which colors are out of gamut (Figure 2-37), as described by the working color space or the profile selected in the Proof Setup submenu.
By default, the overlay color is slightly lighter than a mid-gray but you can change it to any color you like; a garish purple or green might be good contenders. To do so, take the following steps:
1. Open Preferences: Choose Edit^ Preferences (Windows), Photoshop ^ Preferences (Mac OS).
2. In the dialog box, select Transparency & Gamut from the pop-up menu in the General screen.
3. In the Gamut Warning section of the dialog box, click the color box (Figure 2-38), choose a color from the Color Picker, and click OK.
NOTE While in the Gamut Warning section, you can also set the opacity of the gamut warning overlay, but it's best to leave it at 100% unless you have a specific need to lower it.
