what does IOW mean? Can i deduce from you response that using the soft proofing method in CS6 is equivalent to LR4 in output. That's the real issue.I
Yes, the soft proofing in both app’s are conceptually the same in terms of what they want to show you and why you want to view the soft proof. There are GUI differences (LR being superior) and advantages in workflow (LR has virtual copies for output specific edits, a true before and after preview, the ability to store the rendering intent selected for use in the Print module). But if the question is, does soft proofing operate in both to allow the user to see a simulation of the output, select a rendering intent and if necessary, edit the image based on that soft proof, the answer is yes.
