Color Mode (space)

Many inkjet printers have adapted the Adobe RGB color space, meaning they can reproduce colors out of the sRGB (standard RGB) gamut (range), so it is recommended to keep for-print images in Adobe RGB.

Create new documents in RGB mode (space); use the Adobe RGB profile for print documents, and use sRGB if your document is only for web/digital screens.
