comment Is CMYK less blue than sRGB?
Is the ICC profile what accounts for the inaccuracy of the monitor? So Photoshop OR the graphics card OR the screen LUT must use the ICC profile? If this is set up in the screen (calibrating software and hardware), should it be turned off in Photoshop?

So when using ProPhoto RGB even though the monitor only supports AdobeRGB, you will not loose anything when converting to AdobeRGB. However if you get a better monitor later, the image will suddenly be more saturated.

I finally understand how this is working. Proof setup in Photoshop shows a preview on how it's going to look after a conversion to another color space. It makes sense.

What do you mean by degrading? What bit depth do you recommend for ProPhoto and AdobeRGB? I suppose 8 bits per channel is enough for sRGB?

I've read about color management which is why these questions came to mind. Thank you for helping me clear up things! Lightroom uses ProPhoto RGB as the default color space. Considering I either post my images on the internet or print them out, should I use AdobeRGB? AdobeRGB is supported on good screens, and is converted pretty well to sRGB for the internet.

Violet: Actually I've noticed this with flowers when you say it. I've tried to get this color I remember in Photoshop, but never really got it right, no matter what I did!

So if you take a photograph of a violet object (RAW) and display it with ProPhoto RGB on a good monitor, you'll actually get a different color when you compare the monitor with the violet object?

So really if you're doing work for print, you should really use the color space of the printer? If you use ProPhoto RGB for an sRGB printer, you'd get a less saturated image on print?

@AJHenderson I picked CMYK and sRGB because it made it very easy to make my point in the question. But this really goes for all color spaces relative to photography.

So if one has got enough disk space and processing power, the biggest gamut possible is desirable (given the monitor can display all the colors)? If the image is meant for print with sRGB, would it be best to use sRGB because ProPhoto would give you more saturation than you will get on print?

@AJHenderson As I see it this is absolutely vital to photography. Photography to me encompasses the whole chain from actually dialing the settings on the camera, to editing the photography on the computer, to sending it to the printer. Is this site only for the camera part of it?

comment What is the price graph of Nikon cameras?
I went for the D7000, and I'm glad I did. I've got so many shots that I would have missed with my D40 in terms of photo quality. The dynamic range is absolutely stunning. I've got some really good shots where the D40 would have blown out the highlights and burned out the blacks. "Don't get caught up in the waiting game!" This is really true.

comment Can I use ProPhoto in 14 bits?
@MichaelClark Okay, do you mean that because of this process, there will still be an accurate representation of the colors in 16 bits when saved to a file?

comment Can I use ProPhoto in 14 bits?
Thank you for a good answer. I'm very interested in photography, and I even do it professionally at times. I'm good with the creative and settings part. The reason why I ask is because I like AdobeRGB because I'm doing a lot of print, but ProPhoto RGB is default in Lightroom. Are you saying that when getting RAW images with 14 bits it isn't enough data to preserve all the nuances? Should I go with AdobeRGB and set this as the default in Lightroom?
