Default Colour Management: Spyder3Pro & Canon DPP & Photoshop CS2


I wonder if someone could please offer me some advise?! I have just reformatted my computer and have forgotten the steps I took previously to colour manage my system.

I have calibrated my monitor using Datacolor's Spyder3Pro and have saved the resulting monitor profile. I use Canon's DPP to convert my RAW files to TIF before editing in CS2 and saving as jpg for web (and print at the online store I use).

I use a Canon 20D set to the SRGB color space. In DPP under the Preferences>Color Management tab I have the 'Default settings of the Work color space' set to sRGB. Under 'Color matching settings' I have selected the monitor profile I saved as above. I think this is right so far... can anyone confirm this for me?

In CS2:
This is where the confusion sets in! In the color settings tab, should I change the RGB Working Space to the monitor profile? The default is North America General Purpose and RGB = sRGB IEC61966-2.1

I can't remember (or fully understand!) if I should change this to my saved monitor profile?

If anyone could offer some advise, or confirm my settings I would be very grateful.

Many thanks, Casper
