What is photographic paper? Paper selection essential for printing works!
Q. What is photographic paper?
A.Photographic paper mainly refers to paper for silver salt printing.
A photosensitive material is applied to develop film images taken with a film camera.
However, in recent years, photographic paper for inkjet printers, which is capable of outputting high-quality digital images, is also called photographic paper, and there are two types: baryta-based and RC (Rasin Coating)-based .
Baryta is a type of paper that has an undercoat layer (baryta layer) that is applied to make the paper look whiter, and a photosensitive material layer on top of that.
One of its strengths is the beauty of its depiction due to its unique fine texture.
RC refers to baryta paper with a resin layer on both sides to eliminate the drawback of baryta paper, which absorbs chemicals unnecessarily.
By changing the texture of the surface resin layer, it is possible to create a strong gloss or suppress the gloss.
Which prints are suitable for photographic paper?
Photographic paper and matte finish are recommended for photobooks and albums, large photo paper for photo contests and exhibitions, pamphlets, catalogs, etc., if you want a high quality finish.
