Which color space do you use most of the time. My images will be used for printed material ONLY !!!

Have any of you tested the differences ?

Thank You,

Wil:
Having spent the last 5 years of my IT career supporting Ad agencies like BBDO, J Walter Thompson, etc. and their Macintosh Creative departments, I can tell you that- if you're setting up for printing- they all used WITHOUT EXCEPTION Adobe RGB colorspace. sRGB looks great onscreen and on webpages, but Adobe RBG (usually shown as Adobe RGB 1998) gives you an expanded colorspace for printing approximately 35% larger than sRGB, if my memory is correct. (In other words, MORE COLOR RANGE)

Macdaddy,



I have changed my camera setting to aRGB. Just like you said .. that is the way to go for prints.



Mycompany ad agency uses aRGB for our work also.
