Why Adobe 1998 color space?  I don't understand this stuff, but my LR4 only has processes 2003, 2010 and 2013.

Question: What do you do all week?
Answer: Mon to Fri. Nothing, Sat & Sun I rest!

I think I see what you are referring to.  Which makes me want to ask the original poster:

Did you change the color space in the camera to AdobeRGB or are you setting that in your editor then converting it to SRGB when saving as a JPEG?

If setting in the camera, when shooting RAW this does not need to be done.  RAW files are pretty much color space agnostic and will work in whatever colorspace the editor is working in, whether it is SRGB, AdobeRGB, or even ProPhotoRGB.  That setting will tag the EXIF information in case the editor relies on the file to make a color space decision. Otherwise, that setting is intended for when shooting JPEG from within the camera.

Maybe something is occurring during the different color space conversions if this is being done multiple times?  I'm not familiar with Aperture, so I can't say how it treats or converts to different color spaces.
