    As someone who takes my craft seriously, I've spent many hours reviewing and testing many different papers to find the one that works best with my style and subject matter. What I've found with the Ilford Galerie Gold is a paper with a great look and feel. Colors are vivid and have that "snap" that just grabs your attention. However, where this paper really blows me away is with Black and White prints. The slightly warm tone this paper has (due to an absence of optical brighteners) really brings Black and White prints to life!

            I bought this to print my photography portfolio on and it worked really well. It has a good absortion of the colors, not being to shiny. It also has a good weight.

              I have printed both black and white and color using my Canon Pro 9500 MKII. This paper is one of the best for B&W with nice blacks. I still like my silver gelatin prints better but not by much. The color is very good too. I hope I can keep getting it in the future.

                    I've tried out a wide number of photo papers for inkjet printing and this paper is superb. The color gamut is great and I've gotten so many compliments on the prints I've made on this paper. I just wish they made this paper in 11x14 so I wouldn't have to trim my prints. But that's a very small price to pay for the quality.

                      I'm only writing this review because I saw someone giving it a bad review with inaccurate descriptions. I'm not sure what "group shots" and "n/a" is meant to say, but I do know that there is an .icc profile for this paper, I've been using it successfully for many years. Best paper I've ever printed on, hands down. You can't go wrong.
