The Proof tool allows you to see on screen how your photo will look when printed.
Unlike other tools, the proof tool is special. It is always applied to the entire photo and can not be masked using regions. Additionally, there can be at most one proof tool, it is always placed at the top of the tool stack, and its label can not be edited. Lastly, it is only in effect when shown.
To proof your photo:
- Click the proof tool button in the tool bar or select Tools > Show Proof Tool. (The proof tool will appear at the top of the tool stack.)
- Select the printer profile you will use from the Printer Profile pop-up menu.
Select the rendering intent you will use from the Rendering Intent pop-up menu.
Your photo will now appear on screen how it will look when printed.
- When done, click the proof tool button again or select Tools > Hide Proof Tool. (Your photo will appear as it did before and the proof tool will disappear from the tool stack.)
