    The period at the end of the line has been included in the URL in my original post. That's why it did not work. I have fixed it. Or you can use this link:

    http://wandb.com/icc.htm

    If this does not work, try typing the URL directly into your browser.

    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    Currently using:-
    1. Matte Heavyweight paper (A4 & A3)
    2. Premium Glossy paper
    3. Premium Semi-Gloss paper

    After mucho experimenting and paper/ink wastage, I find that the best setting for my printer is to use PhotoEnhance at Normal setting and no Effects. Turning on profiles and ICC just really messes up the prints.

    Will be trying that Ilford paper that ckiang is so enthusiastic about.
    Second that. If you are using an Epson printer, there is no better paper than Epson paper. Even the professionals admit that. BTW the premium glossy paper is superb for photos and is waterproof after it dries.

    any paper to go along with colour laser printer ?
    I have yet to see a office/desktop colour laser that can beat the Epson or Canon inkjet photoprinters. They just have too much dithering based on the 4 colour toners.

    But laser printers are more tolerant to paper quality than inkjets, so you should be able to get good quality with regular laser paper (eg Azone). Just make sure it is super white.

    Have been using the konica inkjet paper QP for both 4x6 and A4. Found the quality better then epson photo paper and also much cheaper. I'm using Epson Photo 790 printer.

    Jus word of caution though, the pricing of the konica inkjet paper QP is different from br to br.

    Costs $19 for 25 sheets in a nice red box, available from Ruby Photo. Much better value for money than the equivalent Epson papers.

    saw it (and some other types) selling in Penn Camera, DC but ard USD$15 for 25. Luckily I didn't buy it over there

    I'm using the Canon S820, I have gone through a pack of Canon Paper Pro, Canon Glossy Photo Paper and Epson Economy Photo Paper, using ICC profiles from http://wandb.com/icc.htm . I can honestly say that the profiles are fantastic for matching colours. However, in terms of overall quality and of course price, nothing beats the Canon Paper Pro. The Epson Economy and the Canon Glossy Photo Paper tends to display slight grains/dots in blurred backgrounds, but of course for the price I think for normal printing the Epson Economy Photo is not bad at all, especially now they are having a promotion so a pack of 20 is only at $11.30!

    However this Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl inkjet paper looks interesting, read that people in dpreview has used to good effect, will go down today to get a pack

    Ruby photo run out of the Smooth Pearl Inkjet, next shipment expected in 4 weeks Anybody knows which other shop carries the ILFORD Smooth Pearl Inkjet paper? A check with ILFORD's website brought up Ruby Photo only.

    Anyway I bought a pack of Smooth Gloss Paper to compare against the Canon Photo Paper Pro.

    Am using the Epson matte photo paper on my Epson 1290 and it seems waterproof too.
