I've read many of the other threads on color management and they are way beyond my novice level.  But like another thread, my colors are not as vibrant as I anticipated.  On my camera (Nikon D7000), I have a choice between Adobe RGB and sRGB.  Is APP optimized to work better with one of these over the other?

Have a read through this topic, it comes with an extensive answer from Mabula; https://www.astropixelprocessor.com/community/postid/14577/

edit: Oh so, if you need a short anwer; sRGB should be fine for almost everyone as the monitors you work with are not displaying adobeRGB for instance. Having less vibrant colors is usually a combination of data and post processing.

@leolibbey If you are shooting in raw, this in-camera setting has no bearing whatsoever on your photos.

Thanks Samuel, I misread that indeed. The on-camera setting indeed has no influence for raw data.
