Filter by Proof Copies

Am I missing something?

My workflow is primarily to digital, but now I'm printing more. When I have to print, the workflow is as follows:

  1. Select candidates from images that have already been processed.
  2. Turn on soft-proofing and create a proof copy (because I do not want to alter my digital-ready "original").
  3. Edit the proof copy, send to print.

 

My problem is that I now have a library filled with edited images for both print and digital. 


It would be really useful to then be able to filter (in or out) the "proof copies". 


I currently filter by edited images and my rating to find the images I want. But now my proof copies are in the mix as well.

 

I know that there is a virtual copies filter, but I often make several virtual copies of the same image when working on different looks or crops. So that doesn't do the trick.

 

Is there a way to filter by proof copies? Or do I have to label them all as I make them?

This works (but I won't mark it as the answer because someone may have a better alternative):

When you make a proof copy, the ICC profile name is used as part of the image "copy name". Therefore, you can filter on edited AND in the text attribute filter for/against a text string from the ICC profile name.
