You can try asking Eugene from Ruby Photo. He's the "boss" there and a very friendly guy. I spoke to him a few time before and he's very helpful and knowledgeable about colours and Ilford stuff.

hi dagger, i followed the instruction checklist for the setting on my printer as stated but the skin tone is far off the mark. As this is my first time using this paper, and i dun have a paper cutter to cut then to 4R size, therefore,its a huge waste of resources to be printing based on trial and error, which is why i needed a guide from people who has been using the paper longer than me so that i can fine tune it to match my screen. Thank you.

There are 2 types of Ilford pearl paper,
1. Smooth pearl.
2. Classic pearl.
I am using Canon S820, I have problem with the smooth pearl paper(color a bit soft), but no problem with classic pearl.
To solve the problem need to calibrate the color, this option is expensive.
So, buy the classic pearl, should not be a problem.
