"The key concept in color management is color space — a
model that describes the way colors can be represented as numbers.
The Dry Creek Photo page explains it best:
"A color space provides the definition for what color the
numerical combination represents. Color spaces are akin to
languages. A value such as 88/249/17 is given meaning by the color
space in the same way as an otherwise random sound has meaning in a
particular language. If our example of 88/249/17 is interpreted
using the Adobe RGB color space, it is a vibrant, attention getting
green. If, on the other hand, the same value is interpreted using
the sRGB color space, it is a pale, sickly yellowish-green."
