Steven,

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.

String,

Thanks for your reply. That's exactly what I do. I use Adobe RGB for printing, and sRGB for the Web. But I notice that sometimes when I convert a processed file from aRGB to sRGB, the colors get washed out. This leads me to believe that I should convert the photo to sRGB first, before doing any post-processing, right?
