My camera only has srgb and adobe rgb for color spaces? its canon rebel t3i, which should I use?

As far as printing goes weather its a home printer or a business, what color space should I set photoshop up to use? Right now my imac is set up for iMac?

Thanks

Doesn't matter...RAW files don't have an assigned profile!

Display - You should be calibrating your screen so it will change regularly

Image - I use ProphotoRGB for most editing, then convert to Adobe RGB if printing from PS. If printing from LR just keep the file in Prophoto if you've edited it in PS. If printing from RAW don't worry about it.

Printer - Make sure you are choosing the correct paper profile in LR/PS and then turning off color management in the driver. Also be sure to choose the right paper type in the driver.

I do calibrate the best i can with what comes with puter, I can't afford calibrating equipment. Right now my mac is set to calibrated which I did awhile back. Should I leave it on calibrated setting and put photoshop on prophoto for printing?
