I finally upgraded my monitor to an Asus PA238Q, a unit more appropriate for photography work. This has helped immensely and Iím finding the Lr4 soft proofing much more useful now that I can rely on the starting point for my colors being accurate. However, Iím still getting prints that donít match the monitorís image perfectly.
Last night I was working with an image that had a lot of sky and sea in it. I got the blues just right and then adjusted the soft proof for my paper using a little more clarity and some brightness adjustments. This corrected the change from projected to reflected image nicely but the blues in the print are significantly more green than on the monitor. I know I could correct this in the monitor, but then the monitor would be off for web images and other use where I want the sRGB scale to be accurate. The monitor has a default, calibrated sRGB setting, which does seem to be very accurate. I'm assuming the change is in my printer and inks.
My question is; If I start with the soft proof profile for my paper, is there a way to then add to the profile creating an adjusted soft proof paper profile that includes the green of the printer? If I were able to do this, I could then adjust my final image, adding more blue or decreasing green, so that the printed image more closely matched the screen. I understand that this profile might not work with other images that are not so heavily blue, but I could save it as a special profile for similar images. What is the right way to do this?
