Hahnemuhle Fine Art Baryta:
- This is a really great paper whose prints I love in almost every respect except the surface texture. The blacks are solid, the prints have more dimensionality than the Ilford, and the prints have the "ooomph" that I crave. Only thing is I'm just not wild about the surface - it's a bit too much paper fiber / long-grain rice (??!) for me, although I could live with it for sure.


The Hahnemuhle Baryta has become my favourite paper - period.

I tried the Harman Gloss FB AL and tried to like it - and I do quite like it. But.. as MR correctly points out - its got quite a coolish cast to it - which 'can' work well depending on the print. It can also work against the print.

The Hahnemuhle is much more neutral - in fact its the most neutral of the 3 Barytas I have tried. I love the feel, the stipple [I tend to favour papers with more surface texture - such as Hahnemuhle Museum Etching] and the results it produces with Canon Inks.

Its my new 'default' paper. Paired with PhotoRag and I am pretty happy with those two options for 99% of my work.

If you use the Greyscale option in Camera Raw 4.x or the Black and White Adjustment Layer in Photoshop CS3 you can dial-in any toning you want, including split-toning. In Photoshop you can also do this under Soft-proof with the printer profile for the paper you are using and "Simulate Paper White" checked, which - if your display is properly calibrated and profiled - will give you a pretty good prediction of the printed result.
