    Hi, I have the Loxley colour profile downloaded as I aim to send a bunch of files to them for printing. My monitor is calibrated and I'm using Lightroom 4. Is anyone able to give me a brief idiot's guide as to soft proofing to get the image (as seen through the Loxley profile) to match the original on my screen. The main thing I need is advice on how to save the adjusted image for sending to Loxley.
    Many thanks,
    Ian.

    Many thanks,

    As soon as you start to make adjustments in soft proofing mode a dialogue box pops up

    I suggest you choose the default option and make a proof copy, when it does this the chosen profile is added to the filename.
    In this example it is one from DS Colour but I assume yours will indicate Loxley.

    Continue to make your adjustments and use this proof copy to send to Loxley via LR's print module, where you will have to select the profile again.

    You should probably be careful not to convert to the printer profile, Ian, as Loxley are not colour-managed as far as I know. An embedded printer profile might just ruin the colour (ironically), so sending sRGB is safer.

    Thanks Glenn - I did that. Have had some test prints back using their profile and working on soft proofs in LR and must say I'm very pleased with the results.
    Thanks for the help guys.
