I am using a Spyder 3 Pro and Photoshop cs3. I'm a little confused about how to set up the color management in Photoshop. I am currently using:
Settings: Custom
working space: rgb Adobe 1998

Is this correct to take advantage of my monitor calibrated with Spyer 3?
If not what do I use.

BTW, in Windows control panel my default color setting is for my Spyer 3 profile.

Any help with this would be very welcome!
Thanks in advance.

Yep, that's right. You definitely do NOT set your monitor profile as your working space. Adobe RGB or sRGB are the best choices.

Thank you, I searched for this answer but everything I found seemed to assume that I knew what I was doing! :)

Yeah, I get that.

In that case, I'd recommend you stick to sRGB rather than Adobe RGB. Adobe RGB has a wider gamut, and as such has some advantages, but also some serious pitfalls for the unwary.
