To start off I shoot my aviation photos with a Nikon D70 and post-process my photos with Adobe PS Elements 5 (PSE 5). I read a post from another website's user group that the settings for your camera and post-processing software should be identical. Now I am trying to find out what are the best color settings I should use for each. Currently my D70 color mode is set for II(Adobe RGB) and the color settings for PSE 5 is sRGB ("Always Optimize Colors for Computer Screens"). I have been shooting II(Adobe RGB) since it was refered by an individual here on A.net as the better setting for aviation photos. PSE 5 does have a setting for the Adobe RGB color space which is "Always Optimized for Printing". So, which match up of settings should I use?
- D70 = II(Adobe RGB) and PSE 5 = Adobe RGB color space (for printing)
- D70 = II(Adobe RGB) and PSE 5 = sRGB (for computer screens)
- D70 = IIIa(sRGB) and PSE 5 = Adobe RGB color space (for printing)
- D70 = IIIa(sRGB) and PSE 5 = sRGB (for computer screens)
I will also mention that my Viewsonic 19" LCD monitor is kept calibrated by using a Colorvision Spyder2Express Colorimeter.
I look forward to individuals suggestions.
