Just curious on how others set up their Photo Shop Color Management defaults? The majority of my work is web based...just wondering what settings others use or recommend?

my understanding is that they will print nudes, and glamour...but anything that suggest a sexual act is a no no. Email their customer service...they are very responsive.

sRGB = Sh#t RGB.... I was told by a color expert to NEVER use sRGB.... use apple RGB. Something about the color space is better... not that I can tell but I listen to people better than I. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

If you never, never and never do anything else then make pictures for the internet (and pray that wide-gamut monitors will never become mainstream), then and only then sRGB is a good choice.

For the rest, I agree with you…never capture images with a limited colorspace.

Btw. I would check the ‘Ask when …’ boxes and why not ‘preserve embedded profiles’?

Greg,

If you need a local lab to do your "nudes" then I would and could reccomend a great lab here in Mesa. and a good price for prints and they do all my stuff.

Call me.

I have asked every lab and they prefer sRGB. Now when I shot some stuff for a brochure, the printers asked for Adobe RGB

That is because most labs are not aiming for the (few) professional photographers outside. They choose to advice sRGB, because it’s a small color-space causing little difficulties with the average picture. The good labs (and there are not many) will give good advice and have first-class knowledge about color management. They profile their printers and let you use those profiles they created with your images for soft proofing and converting to the printer profile in the end.

Most printers can print way outside the sRGB colorspace; therefore, sRGB is not a good description and an unnecessary limitation. When you use adobeRGB, you can convert to a smaller colorspace, but you cannot convert sRGB to a larger colorspace (like the printerprofile) (well you can, but you will not gain anything). Some printmakers ask for aRGB, because they will do the converting for you.
