I just picked up some IBM Heavyweight Ultra Glossy Photo Paper at Wal-Mart.
I printed a sample image (http://www.gballard.net/psd/srgbforwww.html) on it
and on genuine Epson Glossy 4"x6" Photo Paper. Grays and skin tones all
have an olive green tint to them on the IBM paper. The Colors look great on
the EPSON paper. Is there any paper that is less expensive then the EPSON
stuff but produces good colors? Can I tweek the settings to get rid of the
green tint? Anybody know how? I'm currently using genuine EPSON ink.

Thanx,
Kajetan

Try the new Walgreen Studio 35 Premium Photo Paper. It comes 15 sheets
to a pack for $7.99 and is often on sale two for one. It does a good job
with all of my Epson printers including the R200 both black and white
and color.

In the San Francisco bay area Epson paper sometimes goes on sale for 25% off
and on rare occasion on a two for one purchase. Usually at OfficeMax and
listed in the Sunday advertising suppliments of the SF Chronicle. Check
your local papers for the big box office supply store weekly ads. Costco
used to sell Epson glossy photo paper - 120 sheets 8.5x11 - for $20. Some
locations may still sell it, but they now sell Kirkland Glossy photo paper
and it works extemely well in my Canon printer. Worth trying in the Epson
as well. 125 8.5x11 sheets for $19. This paper and the Epson Glossy paper
work equally well in the Canon i960, so they may also work equally well in
the Epson.
