Photography podcast #86 is the second? podcast devoted to high end inkjet papers and it reviews and discusses 3 of them. I LOVE photo papers (traditional and digital) and I just bought a new Epson 3880 inkjet to test inkjet papers with?.and of course make larger prints.?There?s LOADS of creative possibilities when you try new inkjet papers so I hope the review of these 3 papers?is useful to many listeners/readers.
All 3 of these papers are highly recommended. Museo Silver rag is a thick (300 GSM) light cream coloured paper with a medium gloss finish and a slight texture. Museo Portfolio rag is a thick (300GSM) matte paper with a cream colour and very slight texture. Moab Entrada 300 bright is a thick (300GSM) double sided matte paper with a white colour and slight texture. Just as an FYI, if i say a paper has a cream colour, others may say on first glance, no it’s white. However, take that paper and put it beside something like regular plain white laser paper and the creamy base tone is more apparent.
Note as well that the 2 matte papers have optical brighteners in them. I also talk about ICC profiles again. Here is where they go on your computer after you download them. MAC= MAC HD > Library > ColorSync > Profiles
