Lightroom CC Soft Proofing Bug and How to Fix It


Sunset on Formby Beach. Fuji X-T2, 10-24 lens at 13mm, ISO200, 1/7″ at f/18. Kase Wolverine 0.9 Reverse ND Grad filter. Tripod mounted.

A few days back I recorded a video to demonstrate how to soft proof a photo for printing, using Lightroom CC. Whilst making the video I noticed the Soft Proofing in Lightroom wasn’t working properly. Both my Mac and PC had the same problem and I couldn’t find the cause. In the end I recorded the video using Lightroom 5 which I still had installed, and which appeared to be working.

I’ve now investigated the problem further and the bug also appears to be affecting Adobe Illustrator as well. Fortunately, I have also found a solution. This very short video shows the problem as well as how to avoid it.

Also, here is the soft proofing video which I know some blog readers have been waiting for.
