I have been working in RGB for nearly two decades. The latter half included RGB print color management from camera to proof, with CMYK conversion at the press. Utilizing calibrated monitors, proofers and embedded profiles, this workflow is very efficient at keeping color-fidelity through the entire process.
But, then there's the internet... Since everyone's monitor displays color differently, it's crucial to start from a calibrated system, and keep profiles whenever possible.
To gif or not to gif?
I like animated gifs as a quick way to show before-and-after for retouch on images, but the color can be wildly inaccurate. Crunching millions of colors down to a maximum of 256 without losing anything would be impossible. It's as a challenge to represent near accurate color, and is really only useful for showing relative or mechanical changes.
