If you're using Photoshop 7 or CS, I recommend you set your Color
Setting to "U.S. Prepress. Defaults." The setting is for RGB.

I'm using a 1DMkII and have just acquired a 20D. In both cameras, I do
not use Contrast or any of the "add controls" because I prefer to take
my pictures RAW and process them later in one of my computers. Both my
cameras are set to RGB.

I havn't any suggestions for making a change. So far, the defaults work
for me.

If you're working with Photoshop 7, it's too late to get a RAW file
downloaded from Adobe. Adobe took the file off their web site when they
released Photoshop CS. Photoshop CS and Elements 3 has RAW picture
processing included in the program.

That's partially why I mentioned it - to remind people to chase their
service providers to get access to the new groups....

I have a comment to make:

CHARTER THIS! ____________________________

This *is* the most appropriate place to ask these questions. When
groups get splintered and tightly focused, the broad spectrum of
knowledge gets lost... and being exposed to ALL aspects of digital
photography and film related background knowledge. I find that the
value of THIS forum *is* the wide diversity.

(written with only a bit of sarcasm, and not intended to be attacking.
the real problem, as I see it, is that eGroups sold out to Yahoo, and
anyone who was grandfathered into the focused moderated
product-specific groups has had many problems dealing with the
completely unresponsive Yahoo lack-of-Customer Service. I thought the
original eGroups provided that focused type of balance for a broad
topic usenet group like this.)
