GLOSSY OR PEARL?
When to Use Glossy Photos
Matching your photos with the appropriate print finish requires a little thought, but here are some pointers for when to choose a glossy finish:
- If you have vibrant, highly colored photos that you want to emphasize, choose gloss.
- High definition photos where clarity and sharpness are important will benefit from a gloss finish.
Glossy 250 is the commercial paper from Omnijet by ILFORD. Its glossy surface reflects light at a high level. Provides a shiny and vibrant effect overall.
When to Use Pearl Photos
There are some kinds of photos that will look much better with a matte finish:
- If you want to put your photos on a wall behind glass, matte will reduce the light glare and allow people to enjoy your photos as you intended them to be seen.
- Matte finishes tend to suit sepia and black and white toned prints better than color ones, but color landscape scenes can often look very dramatic when printed in matte.
Pearl 250 is the commercial paper from Omnijet by ILFORD. Its pearl surface reflects light at a reasonable level. Provides a calm and smooth effect overall.
