    Anyone have issues with sRGB and adobe RGB 1998? or have input??


      I have working in sRGB and then saving as adobe RGB1998 and not paying attention.  I have been trying to save them now as sRGB and they all look odd.... any thoughts?

          You need to learn all about Color Management.  This would be a great place to start:

          COLOR MANAGEMENT PHOTOSHOP CC CS6 Basic ColorManagement Theory ICC Profiles Color Spaces Calibrated Monitor Professional…


          Saving an sRGB image as an AdobeRGB is nonsensical.  You are not going to magically recover all the lost colors you threw out in the sRGB file.


          Make sure the file is tagged, i.e. that it has an embedded profile.

            Once you have done that, please give sensible, complete details about your system:



            Note that this is boilerplate text.

            If you give complete and detailed information about your setup and the issue at hand,

            such as your platform (Mac or Win),

            exact versions of your OS, of Photoshop (not just "CS6", but something like CS6v.13.0.6) and of Bridge,

            your settings in Photoshop > Preference > Performance

            the type of file you were working on,

            machine specs, such as total installed RAM, scratch file HDs, total available HD space, video card specs, including total VRAM installed,

            what troubleshooting steps you have taken so far,

            what error message(s) you receive,

            if having issues opening raw files also the exact camera make and model that generated them,

            if you're having printing issues, indicate the exact make and model of your printer, paper size, image dimensions in pixels (so many pixels wide by so many pixels high). if going through a RIP, specify that too.


            someone may be able to help you (not necessarily this poster).

            a screen shot of your settings or of the image could be very helpful too.
