When adjusting Convert to profile options in RGB document, the preview does not actually show the color change when the rendering intent is changed. They become available only after applying the profile.

The Proof colors preview also does not show the actual color changes - you can endlessly switch settings in the window and there will be no changes to the image. To see the simulation of the profile, you need to enable / disable Proof colors.

Tested on two different computers (win 10, win 11, both with the latest updates and updated drivers). I reset the Photoshop settings - it did not help.

I've just installed PS 23.0.0 on my Macbook Pro running on OS 11.6.  Soft proofing isn't working.  The image does not change at all from profile to profile.  When I select Preview, the image predictably dulls a bit but then doesn't change at all when other profiles are selected.  I read through the Adobe instructions for soft proof settings and all of my setting are correct.

Is there a fix for this?

I printed a photo earlier this week with PS 22 and soft proofing was working then.  Unfortunately, I opted to delete 22 when I upgraded to 23.  I don't believe there've been any OS updates in the last few days and I haven't downloaded any new apps, so nothing in my system has changed.

Soft proofing using what profile for the soft proof? 

On this end, MacOS (actually Monterey), soft proofing works as it always has. 

You say the image "predictably dulls a bit", so it sounds like indeed, soft proofing with that profile is working. 

What color space is the document and what color space (profile) are you selecting for the soft proof? One could for example, have a document in Adobe RGB (1998) and select Adobe RGB (1998) for soft proofing and there would be no visual change, is something like that possilbe? 
If not, try disabling GPU in prefs, any difference?

Hi kmseaman, is thesoftproofing issue fixed you?

I see that a reply from digitaldog is marked as correct, but that reply asks questions you've not answered?

 

If you still have issues then I suggest that to test softproofing you select a newsprint profile [which has severe gamut restrictions of course] - then you should see big changes in appearance as long as the image has sufficient saturation to exceed the gamut of the news ICC. 

Of course make sure "preview" is checks in the view/softproof/custom "customise proof condition" dialog

Screenshot 2021-10-28 at 08.32.50.jpg

 

If you need an image that will definitely demonstrate characteristics of sufficient gamut perhaps try this one: https://www.colourmanagement.net/downloads/CMnet_Pixl_AdobeRGB_testimage05.zip

 

Please report back

 

I hope this helps

@thedigitaldog , @NB, colourmanagement net 

In general, everything works, but it works in a very strange way. If the document is in RGB, then I see problems (changing the color conversion parameters does not give any visible changes in the image until I turn the preview on and off). If the document is in LAB or CMYK, then everything works as it should - any change in parameters is immediately displayed in the workspace.

 

The video shows the essence of the problem.

 

There was no such problem in version 22.5.2

Hi

Preview HAS to be ON for the soft proof effect to be visible. 
That's how it should be
What you see is a PREVIEW of the conversion to the destination profile.

Hi! You watched the video before writing, right? 🙂

 

I have been using this feature for many years and know perfectly how it works. The problem does not reproduce when your document is in a non-RGB mode

I installed the latest graphics card drivers, but even then the soft proof doesn't work. I open an image, duplicate it, do the soft proof and edit it, but when I go to see the original photo this too results with the soft proof. There are no differences between the two photos. I have installed the latest version of photoshop.

Yes it's 23.0.1 version, but don't work! 

I open an image and duplicate it, for soft proof. The soft proof it's ok, but if I return to the original image, here too I find the soft proof applied and I can't turn it off. Maybe I should make a video.

I confirm that my softproof behaves the same way (with enabled GPU acceleration it is applied to all open images, with disabled it works as it should - you can set your different viewing conditions for each image)

I found that the problem is ONLY if the file is in RGB. If the image is CMYK, LAB, etc., then the work of proof colors is completely adequate. Expected that the problem would be fixed in today's update, but no: ((((

Hi,

I use Photoshop 23.0.2 on Mac.

When I arrange any document (Arrange ---> New window for...) and turn Proof color option on in one of them (sGray in this case), Photoshop applies this option for all duplicated windows OR vice versa - it doesn't apply the option at all.

In previous versions of Ps it workes properly, but it doesn't in 23.x.x. I'm an artist and this bug doesn't allow me to control values in my art during the painting process.

Hope, you'll fix it soon.
