1. i was interested in your reply to a recent post. 2. let's assume that the monitor is callibrated using a device such as optical (hardware profiler). if the monitor is decently callibrated and if the printer / paper profile is accurate (custom profile purchased via a professional vendor), why then would one need to even use the soft proofing in the first place? (i actually read the section on soft proofing in your book a while ago--will review it again tommorow). 3. tangential question: what is the ideal white point for macintosh systems (lacie blue 19) assuming that the primary purpose is to produce prints? 5000 or 6500K? thanks for the info. harry Whoa there big fella! Without an accurate profile, Photoshop's soft-proofing is totally useless. The soft-proofed image is totally dependent on the profile. I've had to tune the RGB-to-Lab portion of every canned Epson profile except the one for Epson Heavyweight Matte to actually get the softproof to look like the print. The PGPP one is particularly bad. But once they're tuned, I can see exactly what the unadjusted print will look like, and take the necessary remedial action. Without an accurate profile you'd be better off just guessing and ignore the soft-proof feature entirely. But you'd be much, much better off with an accurate profile!
