I going to purchase Qimage and spent last night calibrating my monitor (by the oneeye wizard). I will probably do some more work later today or tomorrow on it. In a reply to a post I made on another forum, one person said they process their prints in Adobe RGB. They didn't say if they shot in Adobe RGB or sRGB. So, I'm confused. Can someone straighten me out?

I shoot raw adobe rgb. That way if I am doing web stuff all I need to do is convert the raw file to srgb. rgb is for print and srgb is for the web. If you are going to print at the local drugstore do it in srgb as they are calibrated for basic point and shoot cameras that output srgb format.

RGB has a much larger color gamut than sRGB, thus you are throwing away alot of color when you shoot or convert your shots to sRGB for the web.

ImageReady is so you can view your images as they will appear on the web and adjust accordingly. I find a little bit of added saturation helps.

As far as printing I shoot in RGB and print in RGB. Convert to sRGB for the web only in IR.

Regards,

Stu

If the color content of your photo falls within the gamut of sRGB, printing it adobe RGB will gain you nothing.

If you have an sRGB photo (not RAW) and convert it to adobe RGB, you will gain nothing. The color content is not there and you can't create it.

Here is the guidelines my labs have

"If you are col,or correcting your own files in Photoshop, please make sure that you are using the sRGB color mode. Do not use CMYK or greyscale. It is not mandatory to embed a profile, but if you do, it needs to be sRGB."

So when I use, say Lightroom and export to jpeg, it should be RGB, then change it to srgb if I want to show it on the web?
Sounds like a lot of work to me.
