[filmscanners] Re: Color spaces for different purposes



So the moral of the story is you have to know your printing company and act
accordingly.  Perhaps save in Adobe RGB for now, and when you find a printer
talk to them - you can then convert to Colormatch RGB if they are not
color-management aware or if that's what they prefer.

I was at a recent event with industry experts and one gentleman who
is highly respected in the area uses Colormatch RGB because of the
large number of files created in Photoshop 4.0.

Also, if a file is given to a non-color  managed company, the
Colormatch RGB image will survive a stripped out profile better in
general because it closely resembles the Mac monitor space.  The
sacrifice is that bright blues and greens will be sacrificed a bit.,
which probably doesn't matter for offset printing, but might matter
when outputting to a Lightjet or other continuous tone process.


All the best!
