Color Settings in Photoshop Elements


How do the color space settings in Photoshop work? When I'm editing a photo, it doesn't seem to make a difference on screen whether I choose sRGB or Adobe RGB. Is this correct? If so, then should I choose a space just before I print or upload?

  Hello Harold,

In the most basic of explanations, sRGB does not have the "color space" (i.e) reduced color density compared to straight Adobe RGB.

If you need further tech description on "The Color Wheel" and density, I'd be happy to point you there.

If you are doing a lot of post processing, use Adobe RGB.


All the Best,

Pete

  Let's start with some rookie questions: (1) On my monitor, why can't I tell the difference between the two: Is it because my eye just isn't trained? (2) What is "post processing"? (3) I was told that when I upload to BP, I should use sRGB. If instead I upload with ARGB, what will be the effect? Thanks for your help!
