For top-quality, long-lasting photo prints, paper choice is as important as the ink. The variety of different profiles in Canon's printer drivers ensures that the process is fine-tuned to give the utmost accuracy in terms of colour, brightness and contrast, and that prints are highly resistant to smudging or fading over time.
Glossy paper is particularly good for creating vibrant, punchy colour photos. Non-reflective matte papers can work better for dramatic black and white photo prints, and for a more subtle colour treatment, for example in portraits and wedding photos.
There's a wide range of Canon photo papers to choose from, including the cost-effective Glossy Photo Paper 'Everyday Use', the thicker and more lavish Photo Paper Plus Glossy II, the Photo Paper Plus Semi-Gloss with its luxurious satin finish, and Matte Photo Paper which is excellent not only for matte photo prints, but also for greeting cards and crafting projects. All of these photo papers are available in a wide range of sizes. It's a good idea to test a few different photo papers to see which you prefer.
There are also plenty of size options to choose from. If you opt for 127mmx127mm square photos, the Canon Photo Cube is a fun way to store them, or to turn a collection of photo prints into a gift. It comes with two ink cartridges and 40 sheets of square Plus Glossy II photo paper. You can even personalise the Photo Cube by decorating it with your favourite images on the outside. The square photo paper is compatible with the Canon PIXMA TS7650i and PIXMA TS8750 Series printers, as well as the PIXMA TS7450a Series, the PIXMA G650 and the PIXMA PRO-200.
Canon's range of printers and papers means photographers can be sure their photo prints do justice to their images, no matter how or where they intend to display them. From mobile models that put fun into printing with family and friends at special occasions, through desktop printers that are equally adept at document and photo printing, to MegaTank printers that are convenient and cost-effective for larger projects. And to really make a statement, the Canon PIXMA PRO-200 offers professional-quality large-format printing at a relatively affordable price.
