This adjustment allows you to preview different output options for your photo or design. It can also be used creatively for tonal effects. As it behaves like a standard adjustment layer, it must be hidden or removed before exporting or sending to print, otherwise its effect will be included in the output.
Apply this adjustment via the Adjustment button on the Layers panel or via Layer > New Adjustment.
The following settings can be adjusted in the dialog:
- Proof Profile—determines the colour profile used. Select from the menu or use the up/down arrow keys to cycle through options.
- Rendering Intent—sets the visual purpose for applying the adjustment. Select from the pop-up menu.
- Black point compensation—when selected (default), the design's black point is adjusted to honour the current contrast within the current proof profile. If this option is off, the design's black point is not adjusted and image contrast may not be honoured.
- Gamut check—when selected, RGB colours without a CMYK equivalent will display as grey.
