I reside here in Japan and am using a MacBook Pro 2020 16 inch retina (not that that makes any difference I think).  OS BigSlur (also I don’t think that that makes any difference either).  However, I have been advised to install the Adobe RGB (1998) default RGB Profile instead of the standard sRGB IEC61966-2-1 default.  Now I am stuck as to what Default CMYK Coversion Profile I should be using for normal printing (e.g. color photos on e.g. an epson inkjet printer).  With the exception a Japanese 2002 Newspaper profile, I have the following options:

Japan Color 2001  Coated 

Japan Color 2001  Uncoated 

Japan Web Coated   (Ad)

Japan Color 2011 Coated

Japan Color 2003 Web Coated

What would you suggest is the best of those to set as my "default" CMYK Conversion Profile?

Thanking you
