Digital Image Color Spaces

I've written up a primer on Digital Image Color Spaces. It talks about color spaces such as sRGB and AdobeRGB, what they mean to the digital photographer, and how to use them.

Digital Image Color Spaces

Judging by the images I see posted on the forums at Digital Photography Review, there are a lot of very good photographers who don't understand this computer-related subject — a subject that's become more relevant in this age of digital cameras and the Internet presentation of photographs.

It's been quietly part of my photography tech page for a while as I gathered comments from others, but now it's ready for prime time. Other technical posts on photographic subjects are listed at left.

One comment so far...

Nice article Jeffrey!
I’ve sent it to my dad and my brother so they can have a read, and hopefully understand more about it.
It has always been quite a difficult subject to get one’s head around, so showing it with examples like you have it great!

All comments are invisible to others until Jeffrey approves them.

Please mention what part of the world you're writing from, if you don't mind. It's always interesting to see where people are visiting from.

IMPORTANT:I'm mostly retired, so I don't check comments often anymore, sorry.
