ta��s the question you face anytime you print digital images.A�While ultimately it comes down to personal preference,A�there are some things to consider regarding each.
One reason that glossy prints are so popular is because they show vibrant color well. Digital photos printed on glossy paper tend to appear crisper and sharper, while colors in matte prints tend to be more subdued. If youa��re photographing something in nature or anything outdoors, a glossy finish might be the way to go.
If youa��re taking pictures of architecture or monuments where clarity is crucial, then a matte finish will serve you well.A� Black and white images, more formal shots, and larger sized pictures, such as 5A�7 or 8A�10 family portraits, are typically produced on matte paper because of their attention to detail.
