| p.1 #5 · What uses more ink, glossy or semi-gloss (lustre) paper? |
I am trying to setup printing profiles and don't want too many to confuse my wife and kids. We have both Glossy Photo Paper and Lustre Semi-Gloss Photo Paper. I am wondering what should I make the default paper setting be, Glossy or Semi-Gloss? We have a Canon Pixma MX892 printer. Basically which setting uses less ink, if that is even possible?
I have no idea on your printer with your dye based inks and Canon profiles, but I believe with Epson pigment ink printers, more ink is put down using the lustre media setting than the glossy paper setting. And I have no idea how significant the difference is.
