Printing in Lightroom – Episode 2: Soft Proofinglightroom
Printing in Lightroom can be confusing if not intimidating. In this four-part mini-series, I will teach you how to get great prints in Lightroom whether you print them yourself or send them off to a lab.
In this, the second episode, I explain and demonstrate soft proofing in Lightroom. Part of soft proofing is the proper use of “ICC Profiles”. In part one I mentioned that an incorrectly calibrated monitor was the number one reason why people get poor prints. The number two reason is easily the improper use and non understanding of ICC Profiles.
The printers, paper and calibration equipment used to make these videos possible was supplied by B&H Photo Video. Without their help, these videos would not be possible. Please visit and patronize them:
