    Depending on where your files will end up. If you are developing them at a photo lab such as fotohub, save them in RGB. For offset printing, it is always CMYK.

    Send for Colorlab printing = RGB
    Send for Offset printing = CMYK

    For photo lab use RGB.

    offset printing mostly use for commercial print like - magazine, it need CYMK to do colour seperation for making plates.

    This is the first time I heard sending an image file to a photo lab in CMYK. Which school of thought is that?

    Hehhee... Maybe the old old low end labs use ink jet printers for photo development? Who knows.

    Anyway..as what's mentioned, most photo labs are on RGB. Machines like Kodak, Fujifilm and Konica are the same.

    If you are sending for commercial prints (magazine, prochures or whatever). CMYK will be the output standard.
