Since homeschooling myself on the photoshop, i’ve read that the Adobe 1998 colorspace is the colorspace to use and have saved it as the working color space. However, every time i open up one of my JPGs or TIFFs in photoshop, i get a popup-
****
"The document ‘blah.jpg’ has an embedded color profile that does not match the current RGB working space…

Embedded: sRGB IEC61966-2.1
Working: Adobe RGB (1998)

How do you want to proceed?
[radiobutton] Use the embedded profile (instead of the working space)
[radiobutton] Convert document’s colors to the working space
[radiobutton] Discard the embedded profile (don’t color manage)" ****
Do I risk losing any quality in the originals by saving them after choosing any one of these 3?

thanks,
Matt

Just click "Use embedded profile". Converting a small color space (sRGB) to a larger color space (AdobeRGB) does not make sense, because you do not gain (or loose) anything. You can change your color preferences so that Photoshop doesn’t ask this question anymore.

If you convert your photo to the working color space the colors will change, so yes on one. Discarding the embedded profile will leave the image without any color management, yes on that one, and using the pic’s current color space does nothing to the photo.

The only way to maintain orignal quality is to burn you images to CD directly from your camera or card. Mess with color space when you edit.
