If I'm going to be doing a lot of photoshopping do I want Adobe (1998), Colormatch RGB, ProPhoto RGB, or sRGB IEC61966-2.1? Also when I change this in the Photoshop raw settings do I also change it in the "Device Profile" dropdown of the "Color Management" settings in windows? What do I want to change the "Viewing Conditions Profile" dropdown to? In my printer settings do I want to change the color matching to "driver matching", "ICM", or "none"? Are there any other settings that I should be changing for accuracy between photoshop, my display, and my printer? (other than a monitor ICC calibration of course)

Color space will depend on what youre outputing for. If Im going to print then I use ProPhoto (16 bit at least) because it gives me the biggest gamut of color range. If Im looking to post on the net I use sRGB because thats what Flickr converts to.

sRGB for the net, since Photoshop RGB does NOT convert well to forums resulting in less detail and more contrast than the original.
