sRGB is the default color space in Adobe Photoshop and is an industry standard for a standard color space.
Our Indigo press’ are closest to this color space so we recommend using it.

To double check the settings in Photoshop choose EDIT, COLOR SETTINGS

You can see the default for RGB is the sRGB profile.

You can check the boxes so it will ask you if you want to assign a profile if a file does not already have one when you open it.

In addition to this you will need to assign the profile to each file as you edit or when you save.

To convert sRGB to an image while editing: choose EDIT, CONVERT TO PROFILE

To assign while saving: check the box at the SAVE screen.
