What color settings do most people use? I read on the NAPP site to set the color settings to North America General Purpose 2. In the Colors Setting in the drop down box I have the RGB set to sRGB IEC61966-2.1. Here is the issue. I have, for instance, opened the frame from the newest kit . . . .WaveFrame-78-pier (Layer 0, RGB/8*). Next I open my photo to paste into the frame. It is a jpg with the same (RGB/8*). In this case I am pasting into the frame. When I finally have everything ready to paste and tell Photoshop to "Paste Into" I then get a messge which says "Are you sure you want to convert colors to a destination document with a color profile that does not match the current RGB working space?"
Source: ProPhoto RGB (I have no idea where that came from)
Destination: Adobe RBG (1998)
Working: sRGB IEC61966-2.1
There is also a box at the bottom to click which says "Do not show this message again." Do I need to care about this or should I just check the box so the message will never show again.
P.S. I know that 8* means 8 bit.

Thats the setting I use ...
It looks like the frame has a different colour profile to your photo ... don't worry about it just paste into it and it will be OK.
It sounds like the ProPhoto RGB is from your Photo. To check it just open the photo in Photoshop and then do file>save as. Now look at the bottom of the save as box and it should tell you the colour profile of the photo.
