RGB and sRGB I found were said to be two color spaces the former adding some kind of a standard. There are a lot of details about what their difference actually is but how exactly can we spot or see a difference? (If my whole concept is wrong please correct me.)

    Do you mean the difference between Adobe RGB and sRGB? – AndrewH Feb 10 '16 at 15:22
  • If you have a Mac, then you could always switch back and forth between the two profiles, in your display's color settings, and compare. Otherwise, I see a lot of variables at play here and I'm not too sure of an easy way to see. A lot will depend on how your monitor is calibrated. – Manly Feb 10 '16 at 15:38
  • Agree with AndrewH RGB is not a color space. It is a color model. – Rafael Feb 10 '16 at 18:40
  • What's the difference between a color space and a color model? – bzal Feb 11 '16 at 6:54
  • Color Space - the actual space (or range) to describe colors (RGB, CMYK, LAB, and HSV are color spaces) --- Color Model - a model used to portray a color space within a set of constraints and used to ensure consistent translation and representation of colors using that color model. – bemdesign Feb 11 '16 at 12:26
