Hello.

I'm using the following hardware and programs to "develop" my pictures.

- Canon D60 camera
- Capture One DSLR V1.2 LE - for converting the pictures to TIFF.
- Adobe Photoshop V7.0 - Post adjustments.

How do setup the color mangement workflow? My problem is, I think my pictures gets under-saturated, when I use the save for web.

My settings are:

- Capture One
Camera profile is Canon EOS-D60 Generic
Output destination (working space) is Adobe RGB (1998)

- Adobe Photoshop
Working space RGB is Adobe RGB

Thanks, if you can help me.

Cheers!

Kenneth

The problem here is that AdobeRGB can look desaturated when viewed as standard RGB (ie. web) - particularly reds seem to suffer - I also encountered this when I switched to Capture One.

2 possible solutions: when you import into PS, goto Image-Mode-ConvertTo Profile and select sRGB before doing any editing. This is probably the best solution if you are preparing just for the web.

Alternatively, you can work in Adobe, but use View-Proof Setup to select monitor RGB (web colours) and then View-Proof Preview to see what your image will look like on the web, and make any necessary adjustments based on this.

Cheers,

Hi Colin.

Thanks for the reply.

Correct me if I'm wrong. Then there is no need to convert to Adobe RGB in the first place. Just let Capture One convert to sRGB and use that profile in Photoshop.

Cheers!

Yes, you can save from Capture One as sRGB ... but if you're using Adobe RGB as your PS colour space, it will prompt you to convert your sRGB file to Adobe when you open it.

You need to decide which colour space you want to work with most of the time, and set that as the default in both Capture One and PS - from your 1st message I assumed you wanted to work in Adobe RGB

Cheers,

Colin

Hi.

I read, that Adobe RGB has a higher color space than sRGB and therefore I sat the Adobe RGB as the working color space. But I can see, I won't get any benefits of converting. But I think, it's strange, that the pictures get under-saturated, if you chose to convert.

Cheers!

Strictly speaking, Abobe has a broader gamut - ie. it can handle a wider range of colours (there are colour spaces which are even boader) BUT to benefit from this you have to use software capable of processing that gamut through to the finished product - use PS to send the image to a properly set up printer, and you'll see the advantage. But if you send that extra colour to a device which can't handle it - eg. a web browser, that extra colour is just thrown away.

If, however, you convert to sRGB within PS (rather than just save the file) you'll find that PS re-maps the colour info so that there should be little if any visible difference on the screen.

Cheers,

Colin
