        Comments about Moab Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets):

        I have to be the first to admit, this is not my "go to" paper for every day printing and use, however, I do enjoy printing photos on this stuff, when they're "right." Mostly HDR images, highly compressed where everything is kind of a "mid-tone" and lots of apparent "light" in the scene. It's for that type of photo that this paper seems to emanate light from within - almost like looking into a monitor. If you're looking for something a bit different, in a paper, this might be the thing that you're looking for. It can be used to good effect.

            Moab Slickrock is riddle wrapped in an enigma posing as a question. Do you want this effect? Or not?
            For the "right" image, it's wonderful – both color and monochrome. It is reminiscent of a pure metallic but not overwhelmingly so. It's one of the products you have to try. If you have the "right" image, nothing else will touch it. If not – blah!
            I like it a lot for the work I do. I recommend a trial package for your images. I think you'll like it!

            This is becoming my new favorite paper. It prints well with a variety of different subject matter. HDR photos jump off the page. It has just enough of a pearl finish to make images pop, but not so mach to be distracting.

              Comments about Moab Slickrock Metallic Pearl 260 (8.5 x 11", 25 Sheets):

              I wanted to write a review on this paper because I have been blown away by the results that this paper was able to produce on my Canon IPF6450. My monitors have been calibrated using XRite's Color Munki Photo. I used the icc profile that I have downloaded from Moab's website. I followed Moab website's instructions exactly. I usually have some doubts about the manufacturer's claims of promising the heavens and the moon....however, this paper does deliver all that Moab claims. I have tried printing a B&W landscape and a color landscape photo with this paper. The images really do "POP". I have tried printing the same exact images using the same settings using my former landscape paper of choice, Canon Platinum Pro Paper for a side by side comparison. The Moab's paper gives the images an extra dimension that we are always looking for in our landscape photos. I cannot imagine this paper being appropriate for all landscape photos, however, if used correctly, I think that this paper will give your images an extra edge. I am very happy with my results. I am going to be ordering the 24x100 roll next.

                I experimented with the paper for both b&w and color prints. The b&w looks exceptional nice, but the color also has something to recommend it: a watercolor look. I'm putting this paper into my repertoire.
