All photos you upload on the Internet should be in sRGB and not RGB!!!!

Your browser canĀ“t handle the RGB color space.

I'm sorry, but you are confused.

sRGB is one of, and the most common, of the endless number of different RGB colour spaces that can be used. There are many other RGB-family colour spaces, most notably Adobe RGB.

Sure, if saving for web usage, you shouldn't save your images in e.g. Adobe RGB or any other RGB space than standard RGB (sRGB). However, do note that as sRGB is one of the different RGB colour spaces, what you say makes as little sense as saying that "you should use green, not a colour".

Kind regards,
