    Please Explain

    Reading the competition rules I have no idea what this means "Please ensure your JPEG image uses the sRGB colour space as all metadata will be stripped from entries". I do not have Light box or Photoshop. The only software I have for post production is what came with my Canon. I have no idea how you can tell whether a JPEG image uses the sRGB colour space, probably because I have no idea what all this means anyway lol. Can someone please help.

    set sRGB in your camera as the 'colourspace'. Check the manual for your camera. Colourspaces are a much confusing aspect of photography for beginners, but basically it is about the full range of colours that can be included in a photo. sRGB is the 'standard' for web/internet display, and as such our competition system uses sRGB. If you enter a photo that is not in sRGB (say it is in AdobeRGB) the colours may look 'off' in the entry compared to how it looks on your screen at home.

    Thankyou Fortunately it was already set on this. As it is a default setting for Automatic mode I probably never knew about it. I am only just getting into the habit of switching auto off and taking photos using all the other settings.Thank goodness my camera knows more than I do lol.

    FWIW sRGB should also be the default setting for manual modes, unless you deliberately change it.
