I’ve just upgraded my 3880 to K7 Neutral inks, and discovered the huge importance of soft proofing.
After converting my image to B&W (using NIK Silver Efex Pro 2) and returning to Photoshop CS5, there is a marked difference between the NIK derived image and the soft proof based on my preferred paper.
I definitely prefer the NIK look, and am struggling to find the right way to modify the soft proof. Unfortunately it seems there is no soft proof capability within the NIK. The soft proof starting point is muddy and it seems to be difficult to get back to the clarity of the NIK look and feel. Are there any obvious solutions you can share with me?
