How To Use Soft Proofing In Lightroom

This video is part of the Printing Your Photos series.

In this video, I show you how to use soft proofing in Lightroom. Printed photos appear differently than images on a screen. Soft proofing helps us prepare an image for a particular printer/paper combination, so your final print is much closer to how it looks screen. It requires a little work, however it’s not a huge process.

There are three main things to attend to:

  1. Set the printer/paper profile to the paper stock and printer you’ll use for the print

  2. Make soft proofing adjustments on a copy of your photo (don’t change your original!)

  3. Check any gamut warnings

Watch the video. I’ll show you everything you need to know.

I use Red River Paper for my paper stock.
