Photoshop colour settings - HELP!!!

30 Nov 2008 2:17PM
Can any professional minded person tell me the settings for Photoshop CS3 please. I have calibrated my screen using Eye-One, named my profile with the current date, however still confused as to what settings should be on what in the Photoshop "colour settings" menu. Some people say use "Adobe 1998", some say for sending pictures away to the lab for printing use SRGB 2.1? shouldnt I be using the profile I've just created using my calibration software? It's all too much! If someone could explain from the top please what settings should be used from "Settings" top of page to "Blend RGB colours using gamma" at the bottom, and I'll be your friend for life!!! Im sure I asking for thousands of other people across the UK. All I want is my printed picture to look as it was on the screen!!!

Thank you in advance.
