Great photo paper...excellent image quality,
This review is from: Canon Luster Photo Paper, 13" x 19" (50 Sheets) (LU-101 13X1950) (Office Product)I was going to order the high end glossy paper since I have always liked the glossy look on photos but
decided to try luster. I was amazed at the quality of the prints and the way the colors pop out. If you
want your pictures to look better than the lab ones give this paper a try, especially if you have a Canon
Pro series printer. I have a Canon Pro 9000 Mark II and the prints are amazing. I don't think I would go
back to glossy unless I do landscapes so I can have slight whiter whites like on the Pro Platinum.

Could you please shed some light on what paper profile you use? I don't have "luster" as a paper type. Thanks.

I used Semi Gloss profile as this paper is listed under the semi gloss paper category and it came out great.

Eddie, I have the identical printer you have, and have usually used the Photo Paper Plus Glossy II paper with nice results. How would you describe the look of the Luster paper when compared to Glossy and Matte papers. Is this somewhere in between? Does it have any shine or sheen at all? Thanks.

I contacted Canon as to profiles for the luster paper. I was told to use Glossy II and was rather surprised. However. Ilford's web site specifies which Canon profiles to use with their papers and all the semi glossy and glossy papers say to use Canon's Glossy II also so I take this as evidence in the same direction. I haven't yet tried the Canon Luster so I'm just passing on hearsay, not confirmation.
Update to this comment: I contacted Canon (again) since I have bought a box of Luster and was told to use the Semi Gloss ICC. The instructions packed with the paper concur. I tired using that profile and it seems right.
