With the many discussion appearing lately about colors, color
spaces, 8-bit vs. 16-bit and sRGB vs. Adobe RGB (1998), there seem
to be as many preferences as there are combinations, and most
proponents of one versus the other often seems more confused than
the other. I have a feeling that some perspective could be needed.
It is not too hard to understand most of this, so...

This is an honest attempt to set some basic terms straight.

I will reread this again--as well as read the complete thread. I'm wondering how I missed this one and just saw it for the first time.

There was a raging discussion on the Epson 2200 maillist about this, then a lot of discussion on Rob Galbraith (I know you posted there--perhaps that thread prompted this one). I even tried PHotopro as a working space after that one LOL. However, I've 'reverted' to ARGB98--but I NOW work almost completely in 16 bit after upgrading to PSCS. I felt limited in PS7, but tried to do as much s possible. Your great demo has convinced me that it definitely is worthwhile.

And--now to read the rest of the thread. BTW--how did you get so smart about color, color spaces, profiles, etc. LOL????
