Ilford of Switzerland has recently updated their Galerie line of papers and is marketing them under the new name Ilford Galerie Prestige Professional Inkjet Photo Range. Click on the link below to read my review of the new line.
I tried the Ilford Premium Photo Pearl 255g (long time ago) and didn't care for it but that probably has to do with the type of image I used it on. I am usually doing landscapes. What type of image did you print on it? Since I have a bunch of 13 x 19 sheets left maybe I can find a good project for it. Thanks!
I have used this paper a lot over the years. I have tried many types of images and can't say it excels in one or two particular applications. But if you were pin me down I would say it works equally well with contrasty black and white image and colorful, saturated images as well.

For members in the UK, Paper Spectrum do some papers which are supposed to be almost identical to some of the Ilford Galerie range (Pinnacle Fine Art Printing Papers) - I've sent for a sample pack and will report back on them as soon as I've had the chance to test them. I don't believe they ship to the USA though.
UPDATE: PAper Spectrum only produce ICC profiles for a limited number of printers; however they will provide profiles on request. That said, they have told me that the profile for their Warmtone Baryta paper is virtually identical to Ilford's Galerie Prestige Gold Fibre Silk, and that the Ilford profiles would work perfectly well with the Pinnacle paper. Will report back, as stated above.

It ain't so much the things we don't know that get us in trouble. It's the things we know that just ain't so.
Why is this thus? What is the reason of this thusness?
