What colourspace should I save my images in?

This may be dependent on whether you want to predominantly target sales of digital downloads or printed products for your images, but from our experience, sRGB is the best colour space when uploading images.

Many photographers choose sRGB and optimise for screen viewing as this is where the majority of their sales go, and publishers choosing their images for print applications generally have the ability to manage the colour space in a way that is appropriate for the application.

Ultimately the final decision is down to the photographer, the print products we offer on the site are all fulfilled by print partners familiar with colour space settings, so the final decision will come down to what colour space the photographer feels will make their images most compelling as a viewer sees them on the screen.
