Preview can also show you how a document will print on a certain printer, which is useful for seeing how a color document will print on a black-and-white printer or how a vibrant image will look on a commercial press. Open the file and choose View > Soft Proof with Profile and in the dialog box that appears choose a standard profile such as Generic Gray, Generic CMYK, or a profile specific to your printer.
As you can see, Preview is mighty powerful, though perhaps the most difficult thing is remembering to use it! Until next time, may the creative force be with you all.
