I have been using an Epson 4800 with ImagePrint for the past couple years, and although I am getting very good results with glossy paper, I cannot achieve shiny "mirror-like" results. My favorite so far is the high gloss film from Pictorico and Ilford, however, I believe I can get better results with either different paper or different paper/printer combo.
Is there anyone here that has been able to achieve that life-like "Cibachrome" look from an inkjet? I know that dye-based inks work better with glossy.
I printed on Cibachrome for years and the mirror-like surface is the only thing I miss now that I print with an Epson 7800. I didn't care much for Pictorico and after trying numerous glossy papers I've come to the conclusion that there is not any equivalent to Ciba in the inkjet world. If anyone knows differently I sure would like to know about it.
