I will look for a decent colour management article, but in terms of defending ARGB, I would look 1st to the camera manufacturer data books where they recommend ARGB, then look at Capture 1 documentation where they recommend it......

All the professional events I have attended recommend ARGB for editing. If you are printing to basic InkJets then sRGB at the final stage may make senses. And if you are using mass market on-line printers then sRGB is of relevance. It depends on your end use.

Thanks straw
My camera is set on sgrb and according to that article has no effect on raw the way I understand the author, i just need to tick the working space in ps. One of the downsides of the www net is there is so many contradictory articles out there for some like myself its choose and take your chance.

Thanks for all your comments. I'd seen that line in Adobe Camera RAW below the image and wondered why it was in blue and underlined, but never twigged that I could click it. Doh! Anyway, having told it to open an image as sRGB and 300ppi it now seems to be set on sRGB for all images BUT still prefers 240ppi. I know it's not the end of the world, but is it possible to make it default to 300ppi?

(In CS4), go to Edit>Preferences>Units & Rulers and select 300 ppi in 'preset resolutions'.

It's been set that way for a year or more.

In that same dialogue box you can set what ppi resolution it gives converted files. At least it does for me with ACR 5 and PS CS4.
