Just curious, Do you upload your photos in Adobe RGB or sRGB to Adobe Stock?

Thanks

sRGB because I make one set of JPEGs to upload wherever I license images and not every site correctly handles aRGB images even with an embedded profile. It's not worth the risk of terrible looking previews and buyers seem to be OK with it.

When I was exclusive with iStock i switched to aRGB JPEGs but switched back to sRGB after I returned to independence.

For stock - always aRGB1998 and edited on a regularly colur calibrated wide gamut monitor - not everything is destined for the web and even web/consumer devices are rapidly moving towards wide gamut in the form of P3 colour profile that are already in newer Apple devices such as iMac, Macbook Pro, iPad Pro and some iPhones, as well as Microsoft Surface Studio computers apparently. Wide gamut P3 is/will be replacing sRGB and become mainstream/standard. aRGB1998 and P3 have more colors in common than either with sRGB.

If not having a wide-gamut monitor thus limited to only seeing sRGB (if that) whilst editing I would use sRGB, most important thing is to accurately see what one is delivering, being in control. Buyer can convert themselves into whatever colour space they need, but you would give them quite a bit "more" with aRGB1998 then if supplying sRGB.

If getting a new monitor, it's ability to display P3 would be an important criterion. Whatever colour space one choose to edit in, make sure that your monitor is capable of displaying 100% of it or as close to it as possible (98-99%).

Same as you for the same reason.

I can add that I develop my images using a ProPhoto RGB color space, and then export them in sRGB for microstock

I edit in AdobeRGB and export to sRGB JPEG.
It's all a big mess if you ask me, for instance, windows viewer will account for colorspace in fullscreen mode but won't in windowed, stock sites will display sRGB correctly but social network sites won't etc.
Also noticed that if I go for a high saturated color grading, the sRGB will scream like crazy especially with orange/red in the skin tones, so I must use AdobeRGB to stay more true to editing version or go back and tame the saturation in sRGB file.
I don't know the science behind it I just wish it was more universal and made more sense.

sRGB because it looks like it is Adobe Stock's default. When you submit raw images to them, they will get converted to JPGs in sRGB.

"Raw photos can be uploaded through Lightroom Classic or Bridge. Images are automatically converted to jpeg format at 300 ppi and assigned the sRGB color profile. If you previously assigned a different profile, make sure that the colors still look as expected."

You can edit in any color space, of course.

It is how the images are displayed. If you don't use sRGB the colors can look "off."
