It is important to realize if the observation is "more saturated as
viewed with Vuescan" OR "as viewed with Photoshop". If the
observation is with respect to Vuescan, sRGB or AdobeRGB data is
viewed in monitor space, in which case AdobeRGB will naturally appear
less saturated, and sRGB be appear more correct because it is a
psuedo-monitor space. If you scan into a variety of color spaces, and
view them all with PS6, they should all appear the same (PS6 being the
necessary software, you cannot do all co-existingly with PS5).
