What is the best setting prior to printing using Photoshop or InDesign?
So I'm fairly new to Adobe and InDesign (CS2) and need to set my image to get the best quality at the professional printer. What should my setting be before I spend money at the printer? Should I have it to CMYK or RGB? Whats format shows best? What other tips can you give me to get the best results? Thank you in advance!

It always depends on what your job is. Don't let the other comments fool you. There's a time and a place for RGB. It's usually used for visual, non-printed media (like the web or video) but under the right circumstances, RGB will give you more color... but only under the correct conditions... More

CMYK. Always. RGB is for displaying using light, not ink. If in doubt ask your print provider for a profile to use. They usually accept pdf's but please make suer all your images are CMYK or they will come out black and white or not at all.

Printers ALWAYS use CMYK. RGB is for TV, Video or Web. Depending on who your sending the job to you should ask their prepress dept or Mac op to send you any relevant specs.
