    What are color spaces?

    Any discussion of color and digital imaging will soon bring with it some technicalities unfamiliar to film photographers.

    One of these is the idea of ‘color spaces’, which define the colors a camera (or a scanner, printer or computer monitor) can produce.

    Makers attempt to standardise these color spaces so that the different digital imaging devices you use can produce consistent color.

    Most digital cameras and desktop printers use what’s called the ‘sRGB’ color space. This reproduces a wide enough range of colors for most purposes, and has the advantage of being standard across a wide range of peripherals.

    Individual cameras, printers and scanners may also have ‘color profiles’ which define how that particular device handles color.

    You only need to know about color profiles if you intend using your software’s color management system.
