The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Configuring Photoshop for Adobe RGB (1998) Step One: Before we do this, I just want to reiterate that you only want to make this change if your final print will be output to your own color inkjet. If you're sending your images out to an outside lab for prints, Once you've got your camera set to the right color space, it's time to set up Photoshop that way too. Back in Photoshop 5.5, when Adobe (and the world) were totally absorbed with Web design, they switched the color space from Monitor RGB to sRGB (which some pros refer to as "stupid RGB"). It was great for graphics that were destined for the Web. At that time, digital photography hadn't caught hold like it has today, so it seemed like the right thing to do, and at that time, it probably was. However, now we have to change the color space to some- thing that's more appropriate for photography: Adobe RGB (1998).
