To get the best results from the lab, download their profiles -- they will have ones specific for the printer/paper combination (you specify a paper for your order).

When you download them and follow their instructions for where to install them, then they will show up in Photoshop and Lightroom as a "softproof profile". It's different from a monitor profile. The monitor calibration profile helps you to see things "accurately", though, when you do the soft-proofing.

You download the profile and copy it to the proper folder for your OS. Then you will be able to use it in PS/DPP.

Start off (after calibrating your monitor) by setting Photoshops color settings something like this (click image to enlarge):
QUOTED IMAGE

Never tried that.

I think that's the right place for Windows.

The default working spaces are only used when you create a new document in Photoshop or go Mode > Grayscale or Mode > CMYK for instance (which is not the best practice anyway). So they don't matter that much if the other settings are correct.

It's largely a matter of personal preference & knowing what you're doing.

yes i'm reading , and it's really very complete ,but outside personal prefenrece you quote

For same reasons as above never, ever use Gamma 1.8. It’s obsolete.

they are the default preference of cs3

That's "If you do a lot of grayscale images for web".
I also mention "If you print them to a specific Offsetpress and you know what dot gain to use, by all means do."

sRGB has an approximate gamma of 2.2
AdobeRGB has gamut 2.2.

If you post an image with Gray Gamma 1.8 to the web, it will appear too dark in a non color managed browser.

We need to go back to this because from this and an earlier comment I think you don't understand something:

Printing profiles provided by a lab or, if you are printing directly from your printer driver, are for a specific paper and printer combo, and sometimes for a specific ink as well.

So, the lab has a variety of papers you can choose from. You choose and they print using their printer.

They provide you profiles for each paper type, so you can get multiple profile files.

If you're meaning what I think you are saying, yes.
