Thread: Another sRGB / Adobe RGB question

  1. #1

    Default Another sRGB / Adobe RGB question

    I know this must drive some folks crazy ...

    Yes, I did search on CS but frankly, it was getting really confusing.

    My Question:

    I shot RAW + Jpeg using sRGB in my camera.

    My supplier works in Adobe RGB color space.

    Will they have a problem using my RAW files, or can they simply convert it to Adobe RGB and then continue their workflow?

    Thanks in advance!

    Raw files are in the camera's color space. Your camera setting of using sRGB only affects your JPEGs.

    Another question.. I shoot in JPG in adobe RGB but my photo labs uses sRGB. I sent the JPGs to them to print. Will they be able to print it?

    Melvin, if you going to shoot in jpeg and send directly to photo lab, w/o editing then set n shoot in sRGB. Noritsu and Frontier Photo-lab uses sRGB.

    Hope this helps.

    Update info. IF you going to edit in image processing software:

    If you shoot in jpeg and want to edit e.g. in Photoshop then set adobeRGB in camera. After edit pictures, softproof and color-adjust in sRGB and convert to sRGB before sending to the (Kodak)Noritsu, (Fuji)Frontier and Agfa Photo-lab.

    Cheers

    p.s. why set aRGB in cam and edit in adobeRGB?, better to maintain wider gamma then downgrade last.

    If others have better workflow, please let members know.

    (if shoot in camera RAW then like what grantyale said)

    Shooting JPEG in Adobe RGB preserves color gamut at the expense of gradient. After all, the JPEG files have only 8bits per channel and is lossy. Adobe RGB to sRGB conversion will stretch the gradient and the picture may start to look a little posterized especially if you've adjusted the image (levels, curves etc). Another complication is that the monitor may not be able to faithfully reproduce Adobe RGB due to limited gamut.

    Softproofing for photolab output requires you to have an output profile of the lab machine (same as if printing from home printer). I do offer custom profiling for home printers as well as profiles for some photolabs in Singapore for those that require accurate printouts. Visit my website if interested
