Soft proofing does not affect secondary display at present: it needs to as many use secondary display for image editing and keep primary display for panel/tool display.

I agree. I use lightroom on my laptop connected to my calibrated monitor as the secondary lightroomdisplay.

please add softproofing support for the secondary display!

I totally agree. In many cases when using a notebook the secondary display is the higher quality on and also the one where you view your images in full screen. Soft proofing on secondary monitor is an viable feature that should be implemented.

Hello Community,

I ́m using lightroom on a 18.4" Notebook with an 24" monitor as my second display. I love to have the extra display to review my images in full screen without the need to zoom in and out like with a single monitor.

The only problem is that soft proofing is only possible on the main display which is my not color calibrated notebook screen.

I would love to have the soft proofing feature on my secondary monitor.

Searching google there are already up to 50.000 hits when searching for lightroom and soft proofing on secondary monitor as well as numerous conversations going on since months requesting this feature on the forums.

Please build in softproofing beside normal, live and locked view on the secondary diplay.

Best regards

I also agree but apparently this feature has not been implemented in LR5.. Too bad as many photographers use a simple screen for palettes and a graphic screen to judge pictures. This workflow is very common in photoshop but in LR as well.

A better implementation of soft proofing is all that misses in LR, cf Aperture.

Why doesn't LR allow soft-proofing on secondary display ?.


many photographers use a simple screen for palettes and a graphic screen to evaluate pictures. I don't understand why LR does not allow users to preview soft-proofing on secondary display.

I'd love to see this. When I'm working on my notebook, I prefer to make all my judgments from a huge view on my nice external LCD.

yes please - main monitor for palettes, secondary monitor for image viewing, so soft proofing on it is necessary
