Steven,

Abobe RGB (aRGB) and sRGB are color spaces while RAW, JPG, Tiff, etc. are file formats. For instance you can shoot RAW in either sRGB or aRGB, etc. aRGB has a wider color space than sRGB so it captures "more" color information.

If you are shooting RAW aRGB and using LR, you would normally edit the RAW file and keep it in aRGB for editing. For posting to the net, you would export the file and do a conversion to JPG and sRGB. For printing (at home) I use aRGB while if going to an outside lab, I'll convert to sRGB.

Hope that helps and just ask if you need any additional info.
