    I seem to be having some difficulty with the colours I see in CS2 in comparison to my other programs and on the web. Often times I will edit in CS2, open in another program, and the colours seem to have be 'drained' and the shadows seem to be bumped up. I am wondering if any one would be able to help me figure out how to 'caliberate' my programs. Thanks.

    Here is a 'poor' example:

    It all has to do with your color spaces. Are you using Adobe RGB in photoshop CS2?

    From the looks of it
    RGB: sRGB
    Don't know whether that is applicable or not.

    Ah. I just did more research. from the looks of it I change it to North Amierca Prepass 2. as well as change the colour space on my camera. On my 350D, the options are sRGB and Adobe RGB. Should I switch to Adobe?

    Another question added on. How willt his affect my previously edited photos that I edited in sRGB?

    Personally, I shoot using Adobe RGB because it has a larger color space. When I save for the web, I use "convert to profile" (or whatever it's called) to convert it to sRGB just before saving.

    Your images saved as sRGB should be fine, but you might get better prints if they had been saved as Adobe RGB.
