Hey there,

I just recently got myself a SW270C, and am pretty new to editing in general. I tried searching everywhere for an answer to this question, but was having no luck in an answer.

I was wondering, if my goal is to edit photos and export them in SRGB for the web, should I be setting my monitor color mode to SRGB or Adobe RGB?

I will be using lightroom + photoshop for the editing, and also be calibrating using the i1 display calibration tool to whatever color space recommended. The monitor has 99% in both ARGB and SRGB.


I don't specifically know the answer but came across your post because I am looking at Benq monitors, so am interested to hear how you find this monitor please.

I've come across this article that hopefully answers your question and will likely help me if I buy one of these monitors.
