"The look of print stock"


Portland, US
          

Clearly I'm a newbie but an avid amateur. I have a 990 but am venturing into the D70 as soon as it's out. Can anyone tell me if digital cameras can replicate the "look" of print stock? For example, several years ago I noticed Agfa print stock had a certain look that I found appealing. Kodak has another. (These are printed from retail photo labs). Can one achieve these "looks" through manipulation in Photoshop or is it done at the time it is shot? Or can it be done at all???

Signed,

thoroughly puzzled but eager to try

You may or may not be able to mimic a particular print paper's look. If you're having your images printed digitally on photographic paper via a Fuji Frontier or similar printer you will get the paper textures that the lab offers. Dye sublimation printers usually just have one or two surfaces available. Injet printers give you access to a wide array of paper surfaces. Beyond the finish and color of the paper (bright, cool, warm) you can adjust color balance to get many "looks". But you won't find a list of printers, papers, and settings that will deliver an Agfa so-and-so paper look, you'll have to experiment if you know what you want.
