any additive color space based on the RGB color model; RGB spaces are specified by defining three primary colors and a white point. Note that the RGB color model itself does not define what exactly is meant by "red", "green" and "blue", so that actual color spaces can vary considerably. As of 2004, sRGB is by far the most commonly used RGB color space, particularly in consumer grade digital cameras, because it is considered adequate for most consumer applications, and its design simplifies previewing on the typical computer display. Adobe RGB, which has a significantly larger gamut than sRGB, is also being built into more medium-range digital cameras, and is favored by many professional graphic artists. color model color space Latin acronym
The additive color model used in digital images and displayed on a monitor, or CRT. An image consists of a composite image made by blending three color layers together. One layer contains the red information of the image. One contains the green information. And the third layer contains the blue information. This color model has a very broad and bright color gamut. Skill and experience must be used in translating the strong, bright colors into the more limited subtractive color spaces of models such as CMYK to maintain the integrity of an image as it is printed.
