sRGB Files
Hello!

I have been using GIMP for a few years now and I love it. I know how to use it, but I don't know the technicalities of it at all. I use LR4 to edit my NEF files and then I export them into GIMP to do any skin touch ups or to use curves. I recently sent a wedding out to a company called VitalEdit because I wasn't able to keep my deadlines without some help (I had a few weddings back to back) and I just have a question about the color profile they send the photos back in.

When I receive my photos from that company they will be coming back to me in sRGB. Will I be able to open those in GIMP? Will they look different at all? Does GIMP run in sRGB or just RGB. I am nervous I won't be able to open them! Any advice would be helpful! I am new here and as I stated above, I don't know the technicalities of GIMP at all. All I know is that it works for me and my business.

Thanks!

RE: sRGB Files
AFAIK Gimp uses sRGB by default, could be wrong but at a subjective level you will probably not notice any difference.

What format will you be getting the images back?

It is all about gamut, the amount of colours available and yes sRGB has a smaller set than the older Adobe-RGB.

I will be getting them back in sRGB. Is that what GIMP uses?

I was thinking more along the lines of 8/16 bit jpeg or tiff - just being curious.

Does not matter, just checked on a basic Gimp and sRGB is the built-in color profile.
