Just purchased a canon pixma mp600 to replace my broken epson r300 i'm
struggling with the media settings in canon's drivers the instructions are
vague to say the least i've got some epson premium glossy paper and not sure
which is the best photo paper setting in canon's driver's between,photo
paper pro,photo paper plus glossy & glossy photo paper and also what would
you use for everyday standard photo paper.

there is an option for other photo paper but selecting that disables the
option to select high quality so that's out of the question.

It's up to you to decide which settings work best on your paper. Suggest you
look at finding or creating a profile for each paper type you use.

I'd start with the Canon glossy setting. You should also try the
transparency setting, as it works great here.

Try all 3 settings and see which result you like. You can also try
Other Photo Paper.

Of course you must use Canon ink to achieve proper results.

Thx but ultimately i know it's up to me but i was hoping someone had tried
epson premium glossy with this printer and could hopefully pass on his/her
experiences.

As I said, start with Canon Photo Glossy and transparency settings. It's not
a big deal, just takes some time and paper and ink to sort out. Suggest
getting some color bars to print. Google will help you find existing
profiles.

I have a Canon ip6600 which is sort of big brother to yours. I use nothing
else but Epson Premium and use the Pro paper setting, results are great, I
use this paper for all my photo's as an every day paper.

Thx for that,i did try photo paper pro as it sounded like the best option
and the prints do look very good,the epson premium glossy is also the only
paper i would use it's amazing stuff and cheap.

Cheaper yet, and quite good for every day photo printing is the Costco
Kirkland glossy photo paper. If you have access to a Costco store give it
a try.

I have tried Epson premium glossy with an IP4000, about the same print
engine. I choose Canon Photo Paper Pro in the driver and the results
are great. I use only Canon OEM ink.
