    What brand/type of photo paper do you recommend?
    I use to have some glossy Kodak paper, it was quite good.
    Are there any other types i should look at for high quality printing?

    I don't know why but I've always favored getting photo paper from companies in the photo industry like Canon and Kodak. I guess it is the impression that since they know about taking pictures they would know about what type of paper would be best to print pictures on. Weird, I know.

    Anyway, I found an interesting article about how to choose photo paper.

    Yes, as I said Ive used kodak and am quite happy with it, I just find it pricey and I do print alot of photos out including enlargements.

    Nice article btw, just shows all paper isn't made the same!

    My personal favorites are Konica Minolta (discontinued) and Costco Photo Paper. I have had some bad luck with Kodak in the past. I find K-M and Costco paper holds up even when wet, unlike Kodak, where the image washes away. Also K-M and Costco paper dries quite fast unlike Kodak.

    Is this another way to ask this question: When I take my 35mm film to the drug store, I get their standard 4x6 prints; how can I achieve the same quality from printing my own pictures at home?

    There are several photo printers out there that make very good prints. Kodak even claims that their prints are waterproof and will last 100 years. I'd check out photo printer options from Kodak, HP, and Canon. Their quality is typically very good.

    Check our ebay or amazon or better yet try China manaufacturers, they are relatively cheap. Just take time to get some samples before ordering in bulk though.
