    on my camera (canon 50d) under the color space menu there is the option to change from sRGB to adobe RGB. What difference would this make and if i'm going to be editing and printing from PS6 should i just set it to
    adobe RGB?

    Thanks,
    Erik

    I would search TPF for this as there are several discussions on this topic. Suffice it to say that if you're not sure, you probably should be using sRGB. Most of us use sRGB because most commercial printers want it.

    Wow, PS6 is getting way long in the tooth, unless you mean PSElements6.

    AdobeRGB has more colors than does sRGB, notably in the greens and blue-greens. Go to Color space - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia , click on the color diagram there on the right, and look at the differing range of colors each triangle contains.

    ProPhotoRGB is the working color space in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
