I thought I had this whole colour profiles malarkey figured, but then maybe not...
I profile my monitor with the Spyder 3 Pro and keep the profile up to date when the software reminds me to.
I did a screengrab of something to send via IM to my daughter and when I pasted it into PS CS4 I noticed the colours seemed dull. I scratched my head a bit and then (either by inspiration or luck) checked the working space in CS4 which was still set to sRGB. When I switched the profile to the calibrated profile the colours pinged back to what I was expecting.
So here is the dumb question... well questions actually...
1. Should I permanently change the working space (RGB) in CS4 to the calibrated setting (rather than sRGB or Adobe RGB)?
2. How will this impact editing in Camera Raw/Lightroom, i.e. which profile will they use?
3. I shoot in Adobe RGB. When editing, should I keep Adobe RGB or switch to my calibrated profile?
I'm scratching my head a little now.
Thanks for looking.
