Make a Proof Copy (Virtual Copy) of the soft proof, then you can compare it to the original.
You are a legend - thank you SO much.
I was close; I had created the virtual copy but not close enough coz I didn’t spot the “create proof copy” button.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
Oh no – you know what? it doesn’t solve my issue after all
When you select N(survey) mode the soft proof copy reverts back.
I have done an example to illustrate:
1. This is original
2. This is the original viewed with soft proof button ticked – ie. it’s a duller image
3. This is the soft proof copy with a temperature adjustment – just for the sake of an example
4. This is both images compared in survey mode – on my screen the magenta copy here is showing much brighter than pic #3.
So what I want, is to be able to see pics 1 & 3 in the survey module.
I want to be able to fine tune the adjustments and compare the soft proof with the original which i cannot seem to do because the adjusted soft proof goes brighter as soon as you leave the develop module
Cripes - where did my screen pics go?
Don't use Survey. Select the master and the proof copy and then press the C (for compare) key.
OMG it was that simple!
Thank you so much – I am very very grateful for your help
