SoftProof & "Simulate Black Ink"

Post by gennadiy » Tue 19 Feb 2019 15:46

Hi.
SoftProof in PhotoLine works visually like SoftPoof in PhotoShop with the "Simulate Black Ink" option turned on.
In some cases it interferes with work.
Is it possible to make a similar option to disable this mode?

It also works like "simulate paper color" which is the one that interferes the most. I prefer to use "simulate black ink" but not the former.

Simulate Paper Color ? I did not notice for some reason.
Frustrating that you can not turn off.

Simulate Paper Color ?
Are you talking about printing or on-screen proofing? On-screen PhotoLine is using relative colorimetric for proofing, so there shouldn't be any simulation of paper color simulation. On a printer PhotoLine is using absolute colorimetric, so there is a paper color simulation.

On-screen proofing by printer profile.
I can not fully understand how it happens there, but visually, as I described in 1 post.
In practice, this soft proof is not very trustworthy, because shadow contrast
not displayed correctly and does not match the print result and easier
to work without software, by eye.
Just in Photoshop there are settings that can fix this thing.
