Abstract: In the well-known gamut expansion effect, uniformly coloured target patches are perceived
as more colourful when they are embedded in a uniform grey surround than when they are embedded
in a variegated one. Here, we provide a demonstration showing that this effect can be inverted when
the uniformly coloured target patches are replaced by variegated ones. This observation suggests
that the gamut expansion effect is due to mechanisms of transparency perception rather than due to
contrast adaptation.
