Choosing General Color Settings

The General color settings page in the Options dialog box contains additional controls for color behavior. The first three check boxes let you control how colors from some special palettes are separated when printing to color separations. Map spot colors into CMYK gamut if you want to avoid additional color separation plates for any spot colors contained in your document. Spot colors require their own individual printing plates and add additional costs to the printing process. For more information see "Creating color separations" on page 729. The next set of checkboxes control the behavior of CMYK color space. The Rendering Intent list box controls the method the color management system uses when it converts colors between spaces that are different sizes.
