Nope. Frontiers doesn't do AdobeRGB, in fact they have a smaller gamut than Adobe RGB.

so i should convert to sRGB before sending them for printing? or just leave them in aRGB?

If you send them as Adobe RGB, the colours will be muted.

actually get the profile from the LAB... frontier has even smaller gamut than sRGB. I have ever pushed Frontier to extreme until 70% of the image is out of gamut range.. :bigeyes: :bigeyes: :bigeyes: then the out of gamut range came out almost only 1 tone of color. almost like the image converted to 4bit file. I nearly flipped when I saw the photo.
Yes, that does happen. But not just with Frontiers, I believe ALL digital labs are like that. Have had similar experiences with Kodak (Noritsus) and Agfa (D-lab2) and the Konica (QD21) ones before.
Give and take a bit lor.
