Thread: Noob question: sRGB or Adobe RGB?

  1. #1

    Default Noob question: sRGB or Adobe RGB?

    Which one do you use? Or rather what kind of shoot will use sRGB and/or Adobe RGB? I find that sRGB give more saturated colours than Adobe RGB.

    Most minilabs and inkjet printers only support sRGB.

    Whenever I save my post-processed files, however, it is always in Adobe RGB.

    There are numerous discussion on this topic. See these threads below. While Adobe RGB (or aRGB) gives you bigger colour space, practical situation calls for sRGB mainly because in general, most colour printers including those in photo developing shops able to manage sRGB.

    i shoot raw, and mostly convert to sRGB.. coz it's easier to share photos and print them. Like others have said, most photo developing shops read sRGB, and most photo viewers support sRGB. So if u are looking to share photos, it's better to use sRGB or ur friends might be looking at wierd colours.

    I always keep the raw or tiff files just in case I want aRGB or even prophoto.. But that's rare though, unless I go to a shop that can process such colour spaces, or I buy a new printer.

    Stick to sRGB unless you have special needs, and always in 16bit/channel. Few monitors can display the full Adobe RGB gamut anyway.

    If I were to shoot in adobe rgb, and convert it to srgb in photoshop, would I lose any color data as compared to if I shot it directly in srgb in the camera?

    ? if you shoot directly in sRGB, you are already losing some colors in the process...
