Hi, I have been using sRGB and thinking the color was fine. Should I be using adobeRGB? I have 4.0 elements. Thanks, Donna

I shoot in RAW capture withsRGB and have no complaints. There really is no need to shoot RGB unless you've got a good reason to. Lab machines are setup for sRGB. If you print at home with an inkjet printer you can technically realize a wider set of colors in RGB, but whether it's a difference you'd ever see in practice or not is another question. Here's a good read from a first-class online lab:
