I can't make lightroom show me the blurb ICC profile, which I downloaded from the blurb website. Any idea why that is? Is lightroom limited to rgb profiles in the softproof?
It is a CMYK profile, LR doesn’t support this color model in any way.
I'm also a little disappointed that there is no automatic blurb-softproofing in the book module. The way that it is right now, I have to send out the images and hope for the best, which makes it pretty useless.
As is their profile which doesn’t describe much. For example, they offer differing papers right? So there is no way one profile can describe all those conditions. IOW, you can’t soft proof in LR but it is moot in the case of Blurb. They don’t supply profiles for all their print conditions. Kind of a lose/lose proposition.
