    Always Glossy, really brings out the colour in the image, makes it look so much better, however fingermarks really show up so must be very carefull

    I print in glossy.

    Hi emirates, you can actually ask the shop not to do any touching up.

    Also, if you don't want them to crop your photos, you need to inform them that you're printing super 4r instead of 4r.

    There is a "Printers and Scanners" forum.

    This question has been asked many times.

    I print on Fujiflex.
    Time, is an effortless construction :)

    talking bout prints, does anyone know any shop which does excellent printing from digital files?
    Cause i edit my photos and resized them all to 900x600, will that reduce quality of prints?

    I print on Semi-Gloss aka Satin papers. Quality is good, not a fingerprint magnet and retains colors very well. Sharpness wise, High Quality Glossy paper is the clear winner. You have to choose what you want. Just like Glare LCD/LED screens vs Anti-Glare LCD/LED screens on monitors, laptops and TVs.
