Thanks. One more question...

I am very much on Ian's side in this. Any color space conversions
has an element of rounding errors and quantization problems in
them, and as long the original color space is a real working space
with the same gamma values (2.2) - like sRGB or AdobeRGB - and not
a device profile space (like a camera/scanner gamut) I would advice
to stay in the original color space.

Thanks for that. In view of what you say about quantization errors in colourspace conversions, what do you think is the best workflow out of these?

1. Open D60 image in PS using default sRGB space (based on the EXIF colourspace tag), edit, print.

2. Open D60 image in PS, assign custom camera profile, convert to working space, edit, print.

i.e. do the errors introduced by the conversion to the working space negate the benefits of assigning a custom profile?
