Don't use either! The one you want is called sRGB IEC61966-2.1.

 

e-sRGB is an early, primitive and basically failed attempt at a wide gamut specification. It is long obsolete and today we use AdobeRGB or ProPhoto.

 

wsRGB is not an icc-specification profile at all. It is part of Windows Color System (which is a framework in development and presently not even fully implemented) and used for other purposes. It is not interchangeable with standard icc profiles.

I wasn't familiar with e-sRGB, so I looked it up, too. As best I can tell, it's based on sRGB, with an extended gamut to allow encoding colors that fall outside the reproducible range on a standard computer monitor. My guess is that it's an effort to make sRGB a bit more print-friendly, but I don't know how it compares to Adobe RGB or ProPhoto RGB or why it might be preferable to either of those spaces in a color-managed system.

 

wsRGB seems to be based on the Windows Color System.

 

My advice is to steer clear of both and convert to sRGB-IEC61966-2.1 for online display or stay with Adobe RGB if going to print.

For your document , use a document profile such as sRGB IEC61966 - 2.1 or Adobe RGB 1998.

For printing you select, in the print dialogue, the profile that represents your particular printer, ink, and paper combination. These are often supplied by the printer and paper manufacturers.

...in other words: the document profile is what it is. The document profile always stays with the document and you never need to change that. The conversion for print is carried out at the print stage, on the fly, as the file is sent to print.

 

Photoshop has two options in the Print dialog. One is called "Photoshop manages color", in which case you do it as Dave sketched above. Then Photoshop does the conversion, using the printer/paper/ink-specific print profiles, and sends the result to the printer. This is the preferred method for accuracy and flexibility, but requires that you have appropriate profiles available.

 

The other option is "Printer manages color". Then Photoshop sends the file, in its present document color space, directly to the printer - and the printer driver does the necessary conversion. This method is used if the printer does not come with dedicated profiles, as is often the case with inexpensive home printers.

 

In both cases you need to open the printer driver and pick the correct paper type, and turn printer color management on or off as the case may be.
