We re­view the op­tions you have when it comes to print­ing, to help you make a de­ci­sion for your own im­agery

Dif­fer­ent pa­per types ex­hibit a great va­ri­ety of dis­play prop­er­ties, which have to be un­der­stood for the photographer to be able to pre­dict how their im­age will look when printed. Pa­per tex­ture and thick­ness have a pro­found im­pact on how the ink from your printer will in­ter­act with the pa­per sur­face. This in turn in­flu­ences the colour depth and bal­ance of the pho­to­graph. It is es­sen­tial that the pa­per used is best able to ac­cu­rately recre­ate the colours in the orig­i­nal im­age file, to en­sure a re­li­able im­age pro­cess­ing and out­put work­flow. It is ad­vis­able to run test prints on ev­ery pa­per type, to as­sess which gen­er­ates the ideal colour and bright­ness for your taste.
