    What is your camera settings when shooting JPEG for color space? Why did you choose one or another and do you do any additional steps when publish on web, e-mail or print photos? Will be very appreciated for your comments as information on the web is quiet different from different sources.

    Adobe RGB is the wider color space of the two. It is best for printing and can always be converted to sRGB later. For web and email sRGB is fine.

    Thanks jlabate, so you are using Adobe RGB for jpeg images yourself or this is just your opinion? I am trying to compare results from this two formats and in lightroom I feel like my images "over contrasted", less natural when set to Adobe.

    I usually shoot raw. But Adobe is a wider space than sRBG and gives you more colors in an image.

    When shooting jpegs, there are many camera settings that dictate how the images will be processed and what the they will look like. That will affect how they open and look in LR.
