After a sometimes confusing journey I have decided to change the default profile for images in view NX preferences to adobe RGB (I have camera set to sRGB but shoot in NEF). I have checked the use instead of embedded profile box.
I chose Nikon Adobe RGB 188.8.131.5201. Is this going to be any different to using Adobe RGB (1998).
I plan on using Capture NX2 to edit, which I used for the trial period but I can't afford to buy it just now.
Use embedded profile means that the software will use whatever profile was set in the camera when you took the shot.
In View NX2.3, the option is "Use this instead of the embedded profile when opening images". If you check that box, then View NX will replace the embedded profile with the Default Color Space that you specify in View's Color Management options.
