The main problem really has been that printer inks and pigments just don’t
have the same wide range of colours (gamut) as emissive devices (display
screens). It is quite possible for image-editing software to restrict its
on-screen display to the smaller printed gamut. Then you get fidelity to the
printed page, at the expense of the colours no longer looking so good.
