Hi Everyone, I just received a new book "Photoshop 7 for Photographers" Great book by the way. But it says the default working space "sRGB iec61966-2.1" is basically for web use and I should change it to "adobe rgb 1998"right away, fine did that. Now when my photos are loaded in I get a working screen mismatch warning. OK. But my friend has a new d-100 vers.2 (mine is version 1) His shots were getting the warning before I changed it. Question is of the three modes in the d-100 vers.1, Which one closest matches the Adobe RGB1998 mode? I usually shoot in mode II. To be honest I had the preview on and did'nt see any change at all, and I went through every setting option there. My prints for the most part have been coming back from the lab great. best Harry
Ooop. Because I didn't read your question closely enough . Only after you upgrade your D100 to version 2 firmware will your file be properly tagged with the ICC profile. If you want to work in Adobe color space you need to set the camera to Mode II and ASSIGN the Adobe rbg color space to each file as you open it. (or send the camera in for the firmware upgrade--that was the biggest motivation I had for upgrading mine).
...if you shoot in modes I or III, ASSIGN sRGB as the colorspace. If you shoot in mode II, ASSIGN Adobe 1998. Depending on the firmware you have, Photoshop may not recognize the colorspace tags provided by your camera, especially for JPEGs. It doesn't matter. Just ignore the attached colorspace and ASSIGN (do not CONVERT) the image to the correct colorspace as described above. If after assigning a colorspace, you wish to CONVERT to another color space, feel free to do so. (For web display, you will need to convert to sRGB; for printing, you may want to convert to Adobe 1998 to have a larger gamut available for color correction, but it may not make a significant difference if you do not do this.)
I’ve been flipping through that book for the last couple weeks and yes, I concur Glasseye, “Adobe Photoshop 7.0 for Photographers” by Martin Evening is an excellent book. I've read in several sources that Adobe RGB 1998 is the preferred way to go.
