@ Jonathan - thanks for the info. In fact I'm using Firefox v3.6
As to several other posts in this thread - I'm totally confused. I believed that I'd got all this colour space/colour profile nonsense clear in my head and then I read something else and it's all back to square one again. My understanding has always been that Lightroom, which is essentially a RAW rendering/editing application attaches (by default) a colour profile
of ProPhoto AKA Melissa to imported RAW files. However, the working space Lightroom uses is the calibrated monitor icc profile
. Rendered/edited RAW files (which don't have a colour profile at capture) can then be further edited in Photoshop as a TIFF etc with either this ProPhoto colour profile
, ARGB or sRGB. But here's where confusion begins to creep in - in Photoshop preferences the user has the option of setting a working space (mine is set to sRGB) and everything that I've read on the Adobe forums specifically state that the monitor profile should NOT be used as the working space. So on the one hand we have LR using the monitor profile as it's working space whilst on the other, Photoshop is using a colour profile
i.e. sRGB as it's working space
irrespective of what colour profile
has been attached to any image itself.
I am leaning more to the belief that ignorance is bliss, calibrate my monitor, set both external editing in LR and working space in PS to sRGB and let the applications themselves sort out all the internal mumbo jumbo.
By the way - we were at the receiving end of yet another mass dumping of snow during the night, power lines are down and I'm running an external generator. Time to go back to bed I think and set the alarm clock for June.
