Have been going through the ACR 8.6 Workflow Options to see if i could find a way to reduce the soft-proofing>image sizing>output sharpening part of my standard workflow. Previously, i had always performed these tasks on a flattened duplicate of the master file in PS, using the master as a reference for the soft proofing part.

Having looked closely at the Workflow Options in ACR 8.6 i can see that providing i can get all my edits, retouching, capture sharpening etc. done i could 'theoretically' set up the options so the image opened at the correct size, with output sharpening applied but have not found a suitable solution to soft proofing. Although you can see changes that occur from using a particular print profile, i would like to see the profiled image side-by-side with the original so any adjustments i make can be made using the original image (and Raw data) as a reference. I tried using the new 'Before and After' preview mode but that does not show the image in the 2 different profiles, it just shows the image before and after the edits were applied.
