What Is the Difference Between Printer Paper and Photo Paper?

Photo paper is a type of inkjet paper. If you want to print photos, it is recommended to use photo paper. Photo paper is a type of paper specially made for printing photos, which has certain thickness and hardness requirements, as well as the ability to maintain bright colors for a long time. Technically speaking, photo paper is coated with a special coating on top of regular paper, which makes the paper look brighter and can quickly absorb tiny particles of ink, solidifying it and keeping the color of the photo bright for a long time. In addition, the paper texture is relatively hard, and high-resolution printing can also effectively prevent ink penetration. According to the differences in coating layer and paper medium, photo paper can be classified into four types: glossy photo paper, photo paper, glossy paper, and high-resolution paper (thick photo paper)
