    Greetings...I have a quality question for those that are more familiar to phtography than I...I am looking to build my own wedding album and am going to have hte negatives processes at a local lab. Appears I have two choices in paper - Fuji Crystal Archive (tpye II) paper or Kodak Royal.

    Prices are about the same...each claims to be the best...what opne should I go for?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    I think fuji looks best for weddings

    And I work somewhere that uses kodak - so i'm not bias.

    You're probably best off matching the lab's printer to the paper. There probably won't be any actual "quality" difference in the papers, but it's a question of which works better with their printer.

    I have found that Fuji film processed and printed in Fuji branded kit (I think the printer might actually be a Noritsu at the local labm but it has a Fuji sticker) and then printed on Fuji Crystal Archive is pretty unbeatable for taking sharp pictures.

    Ask the lab and maybe have a portrait printed on both before FOC to choose - I'm sure they'll accommodate you.
