Converting Colour profiles

Recommended Posts

Before I had a clue about colour profiles for publication, I scanned a ton of slides using sRGB. If I convert the files (TIFF), to Adobe RGB 1998, will there be a loss of quality? Are the gamuts so different that I should rescan everything?

Cheers,

Marli

Hi Marli,

 

You won't lose any quality converting from sRGB to Adobe RGB 1998 because the Adobe color space is larger than the sRGB. The differences between the two are hardly noticeable unless you've got a lot of greens in your images, so for underwater stuff you would probably see no difference at all. Definitely not worth re-scanning everything for.

 

Adobe has a page that refers to a very similar topic here.

 

Hope this helps

 

Bonnie
