Check the clarity and color accuracy offered. Glossy papers make colors come alive, but on the flip side, they can be marred by fingerprints. Sometimes, the reflective nature of the print makes it difficult to view the picture in different light conditions. But glossy prints lend a vivid and fancy look to your pictures. Matte finish papers may not have the punch of glossy papers, but they are not affected by your finger prints either. Matte finish photos might appear a bit grainy sometimes. Colors are more subdued and shadows appear darker.

Choose between glossy, semi-glossy and matte papers. Set your important editing settings right. Check your images with preview pane to ensure that you don't waste time and paper.
