Professional Grade Inkjet Paper Launched
Photo paper developer Ilford has launched the newest member of its Galerie line, with a paper ideal for black-and-white pictures.
The Gold Fibre Silk is a traditional baryta paper (made from barium sulphate), which allows it to better hold emulsion as the chemical components are often used as a whitener, according to cnet.com
While the paper is ideal for black and white prints, it is capable of displaying colour as well, meaning that sepia and selenium-toned pictures are available through the use of digital toning and colouring techniques.
It also means that prints can be given a vintage hand-coloured look.
The Gold Fibre Silk papers offer photographic-gallery standard prints for the first time on home computer printing, bringing the fibres of the darkroom to a home printer.
