Hi Mates!

The problem:

if, with adobe gamma, i set the icc profile of my monitor to "adobe rgb1998"
and in photoshop color settings set "adobe rgb1998" i havn't problem.

If in adobe gamma i set the icc profile of my monitor to "sony_d93" (my
monitor) and in photoshop "adobe rgb1998" this happens:

- if i take a screen shot of the monitor in internet explorer with an
image and than i paste it (ctrl+v) in photoshop the colors of the image
changes, in photoshop the colors are different!

Can you explain me what i must do to have the correspondence with photoshop
and another image viewer like internet explorer or similar?


Thnks In Adnvace

Bluntly said: if you don't work for print but only for the Net and monitor-based things like movies, then just forget color management as it's a pain in the ass (the forum will probably use ***:rofl: ). What you can do is set your monitor with Adobe Gamma so as to get a "correct " (cough) lightness hue and saturation. But don't expect others to have done the same! What you made may be perfect on your well-calibrated monitor, but may well look horrible on someone else's, not speaking of the difference between mac and PC gamma...

If you want to print, you need a profile for your scanner, your printer and your monitor so you can print what you scan.

Adobe RGB has got nothing to do with a profile: it is a color space, and a color space that is great for print, but not good for the internet. For the web, sRGB is much better.

I use Adobe1998 because my prints must match my scans and my monitor, but I also have a proof setup: a simple Windows monitor. When I work for the web, I press Ctrl+Y to see the difference between my beautiful, broad-ranged Adobe RGB, and the ugly, narrow sRGB that's used by Exploder, Navigator and all apps that haven't seen the Light...

Adobe RGB not a profile?

Erik

I disagree with your statement :
"Adobe RGB has got nothing to do with a profile"

It has an ICC file-extension, it's properties in Windows describe it as
a profile, you can associate a device with it just like any other profile.
True, it is a color-space but also technically a profile.
