    Use photoshop softproofing to display icc (do not use preserve RGB colors). Depending on displayprofile TRC some dark patches may show as out of gamut, ignore them.

    Example: Image is a TIFF AdobeRGB, softproof to display ICC with relative colorimetric (“relative white” is the only way to do it). Then show out of gamut.

    I should use soft proofing then load the ICC profile but turn off preserve RGB colors ?

    No. Use softproof with that display profile (simulate like with a printer, how things look in that outout colorspace). By default the other setting should be off.

    I was informed this method will not work because and a paraphrase; the colors in question are outside the monitor’s capabilities, therefore; I won’t see any difference ?

    Use out of gamut preview and they will be grey (customizable) so you’ll see where they are placed (if any). I just said to ignore near black out of gamut colors.

    For the proof condition customization in Ps, I should set the Device to simulate as my calibrated ICC profile but have the color space in Ps, set to; for example, DCI-P3 ?

    No. Leave default colorspace as you have (I’ll use sRGB as default colorspace aon all monitors, including high end, since it applies only to untagged images, and unchek ask when profile mismatch, just ask when there is no profile)

    I was talking about:

    -Create an image with a colorspace you want to test. For example a DNG/NEF raw, open it and choose colorspace “X” as destination colorspace, for example P3 D65/Display P3.
    -Once raw is opened in Ps as an RGB image encoded in colorspace “X”, use softproof
    -On softproof choose as device you want to simulate current display profile. Do not chen preserve RGB numbers
    -Enable out of gamut, it will highlight colors outside device colorspace (out of gamut mark customizabe to whatever color you want).
    Ignore out of gamut near black colors.

    These colors outside sRGB are un common: some plstic toys, fabrics with very saturated colors and some flowers. So this is a real world test if not seeing those colors in your dispay is a issue for you with your typical sample images.

    P.S: of course if upon previous display profile inspection it falls short of advertised specs then feel yourself free to return to store and get a better one
