・Rendering Intent
Under Rendering Intent, you can choose between Perceptual and Relative Colorimetric. Perceptual compresses the entire color gamut to match the color gamut that can be reproduced by your printer. Using this option, it is possible that many colors could deviate from the printable color gamut due to the connecting color gradations. However, Relative Colorimetric is a setting that allows the colors that cannot be reproduced by your printer to be converted into those that closely resemble them without compressing the color gamut. This method prioritizes the color reproducibility in the printable color gamut.

・Black Point Compensation
This is a setting to correct the absolute values of the difference in black point compensation when converting RGB to CMYK values. By checking this option, the low tone gradations are uniformly preserved giving you a natural final product.
