question for you guys.. when exporting jpegs.
I've been exporting as 'pro photo rgb'... not by choice just never looked or took that into consideration.
i'm reading now that its a big mistake especially for client work as the photos may appear way off on an uncalibrated monitor.
i exported a set of photos in both just now and see absolutely no difference, although my monitor is nothing too fancy it is a dell that is supposed to be very good with colors covering some very high percentage of color spaces etc etc.. i don't remember all the details.. i never calibrated it , it came with some sheet showing that it was already done.
(what i did notice is that the srgb files are slightly larger than the pro photo rgb
in an case, is this a big deal?
will this matter for printing?
any thoughts would be appreciated
In Lr when you export the dialog window that pops up has different setting you can set . Be sure to check the one's you want and how you want them ...Make sure you have it set to Srgb .
In PS export by going to > file> save for web make sure its jpeg , optimized and image size you want, and quality is Bi cubic percent 100% Preview Monitor Color. Check the box for convert to Srgb. There's a tab set it to high as you have 5 options. You can play with that more you use it to see the differences in the file. Down on bottom left corner there is a preview tab , that will show you how your image will look out on web email etc. with all the settings you set before you hit the save button
You use other color spaces for printing... Here it gets a little tricky, you will work with your raws in the color profile your printer wants the files they will be printing for you ..
