Hi everyone, I'm planning to go full adobe rgb when shooting photos. Have tried this one but a big problem encountered, dull prints. Did converted the color space after editng in photoshop for printing but sitll getting pale colors. I was thinking about my monitor which I feel is not adobe rgb friendly. Dont know its specs. My question is, what specs of a monitor should I look for? Available brands in our country are samsung, LG, AOC and DELL monitors. They vary from different models too but I'm not aware of any monitor specifications. Help please...

Your monitor isn't the problem. Even if your monitor only shows 50% of Adobe RGB (and it'll show a lot more) prints will still be fine.

Your problem is likely color management. Make sure when you open from RAW to Photoshop you specify Adobe RGB. If you shoot in Adobe RGB natively that's fine. The key is Adobe RGB must be embedded in the image. You can't "save for web" with Adobe RGB, it has to be converted to sRgb (not 100% true but a good general rule).

Read this, then tell us more - how you shoot (raw/jpeg), workflow, how you save, etc. Please put a high res jpeg online that you think is dull - if you don't have a web server you can share using google drive, dropbox, your even use www.yousendit.com (external link) to send to yourself and post the link here.
