Just watched a video on Luminous Landscape about Soft Proofing in Lightroom.  Could Adobe add the equivalent and comprehensive tools to Photoshop.  I prefer Photoshop, but Lightroom appears to better than Photoshop at this point.

If anyone has a workflow for Photoshop soft proofing that is equivalent to Lightroom, I would be very thankful if you shared it.

What do you think is missing in Photoshop's soft proofing?

I just watched a LR ACE's video on YouTube, and I noticed two things he covered that PS doesn't have. Soft Proofing is way out in the open in multiple places. PS is a bit crowded for that, but perhaps there is something that would expose the menu for us. Perhaps in the status bar in the document window? I can just use the kbsc to turn on Soft Proof and Gamut Warning, but perhaps it's not obvious the menu commands work together.

The main feature this person used in his tutorial that PS doesn't have is the adjustment brush. It would be nice, if you want to use the Develop Module feature set, to be able to see the Soft Proof inside the Camera Raw Filter. As far as I can tell, that would "update" Photoshop's soft proofing feature.

Although being able to select Out Of Gamut in Color Range does let us create a mask and use PS's very powerful range of tools for editing.
