    Low-key background banding??

    I am working on a low key image right now. The idea was to cut her out and put some natural almost black background in. But it doesn't seem to be working at all.

    Batch Automation Automate "Color Settings" switching

    I have to switch back and forth from working with 32 bit 3d renders in sRGB, then on to a retouching workflow in AdobeRGB. If I have "Color Settings" presets saved, is there a way to automate the switching of working spaces or do I have to manually go into the "Color Settings" dialog every time?
