What Is Gamut and Why Should I Care about It

Gamut is the range of colors that a printer can output. (Actually, it's the range of colors that any digital technology can capture, reproduce, or output.) The wider a printer's gamut, the more colors it can reproduce, which can add up to smoother gradations between shades. In other words, the wider the gamut, the more the printout of your picture will appear photo-realistic. The best printers have a gamut that will create photos that are indistinguishable from traditional film enlargements.
