I just bought a Dell U2413 wide-gamut monitor and want to start editing my images in Adobe RGB color space now that I can actually see the colors. I usually have my camera set on sRGB in raw mode, and then in Capture NX I have the color management preference set to Adobe RGB as the default color space with the box checked to use this instead of the embedded profile.
While I want to maintain the NEFs in Adobe RGB, I need to save a copy as a jpg in sRGB to post the photo to my website. Do I need to do anything to convert the image to sRGB before saving the image as a jpg, or it already in that color space since I had it set on sRGB at the time of capture? Thanks so much for your help.

While I'm not the person who posted the original note, I'll throw out an idea. Some cameras, including the D800, show a greenish tinge on the LCD display if you set the camera to Adobe RGB rather than sRGB. It's similar to what you'd see in a non-color managed program, and I suspect it may be the reason why some complain about the displays on that camera. Give it a try - I was surprised at the difference when I first did it on a whim.
