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. An important component 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 were supplied by B&H Photo Video. Without their help, these videos could not have been created. Please visit and patronize them.
