PJ, I believe sRGB for viewing on a screen and Adobe RGB for printing purposes.

For additional info see links: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SRGB & http://en.wikipedia....RGB_color_space

Hi Herman,

I just read this as well. In my LR settings I have always outputted to Adobe SRGB and screen as I do not print anything. Hmm... wondering should I'

a. Shoot web photos and output in sRGB for web viewing
b. Shoot known print in Adobe sRGB.

Just wondering as my quality in Adobe sRGB captures and web screen view have always been pretty good I thunk.Posted Image

I just read in my book from the master DD..Mastering The Nikon D300.. that when shooting RAW, use Adobe sRGB. So I switched back to Adobe sRGB on Der 300er.Posted Image

Yes, if you shoot raw, shoot at the highest color space the camera has, and then work in that color space. Then for output, convert to display. Color space is one of those, that even if you shot raw, you can not get back. So, always shoot at the highest your body has.

Thanks, Dennis.

It matters not which colour space you are shooting in if you are shooting in RAW. The colour space is only applied when you get your image into NX2 (or that other RAW converter). It is only applied to in-camera JPEGs. I shoot with sRGB set in-camera because my file names are then 700_9999 rather than _7009999 if I were shooting with camera set to RGB. That underscore really messes up the file name chronology. DG

No offense, Herman, but Wikipedia is not an authoritative source. Remember folks, anyone can change or post stuff to Wikipedia. It is one of those, "If I think it, it must be true" spots on the web. It is convenient but not a verifiable data source. What you read on Wikipedia is not necessarily true or accurate.


With RGB etc. I would seek another source and explanation. How about:

SHOOTING: Shoot Adobe sRGB (also known as Adobe 1998) for larger color space. PRINTING: As long as you include the color profile in the image when sending images to a lab for print, most are fine with either. WEB USE: ALWAYS convert / assign sRGB (smaller) color space when images are destined for web use to retain color / contrast, etc. when viewed in a browser. I've configured my Lightroom export presets to convert images to sRGB for those destined for web use. Photoshop's "Save for Web and Devices" option also includes a checkbox to convert to sRGB (be sure it remains checked). J

I leave camera set to Adobe 1998 / Adobe sRGB all the time: JPG or RAW (though, frankly, I rarely shoot JPG). Convert to sRGB when needed as noted above.

I've found that some print labs request files in sRGB format. Always a good practice to inquire before sending images the first time.

Just a few tests using the 50mm 1.8 Series E and 35mm 1.8 D lenses and Der 300er. I only cropped ths images as I wanted to see what the combination sRGB and JPEG would show. I will probably leave shooting to Adobe SRGB and output for web at sRGB. Thanks for looking and your comments.
