Default After printing photos

How long should I wait for photos to dry before putting them into frames etc.... I have a Canon i960. the papers I use are Red River papers and sometimes HP premium gloss paper. Also someone tell me your thoughts on the HP premium gloss paper? :roll:

I use the same printer and paper combination. I allow 24 hours dry time, which is longer than I've seen recommended.

I haven't had much success with HP papers with my Canon. They worked great on my HP. I prefer Red River.

I didnít even like HP paper for my HP printer. It seems to stay tacky too long. I primarily use Canon Photo Paper Pro and Red River with my S9000. The Canon paper is slightly better but it is pricey. Canon prints seem to dry quickly. I put them aside for a day but that is probably not necessary.

Make sure to use the Red River recommendations for your printer and their paper. http://www.redrivercatalog.com/infocenter/PDFpage.htm

You might find some specific profiles someone has done if you ask on the printers forum at dpreview.
