    This is my first post on this great forum. Recently I decided to took some slides to pro lab and make some Ilfochrome A4 size prints. I heard a lot about Ilfochrome quality.

    So few days after I got my Ilfochrome prints and I'm not shure if lab really used Ifochrome procedure or they just scanned the slides and make digital prints because the prints look good but still not up to my expetations and they are printed to Fuji paper. Should they be printed to Ilford paper (but is not paper what is used to print Ilfochrome on wright?) Prints were 8 euro each.

    Thank you for response.

    If they are on Fuji paper, they are not Ilfochrome prints. Ilfochrome prints are on Ilfochrome paper.

    Oh my god! I was suspicious about that. They cheated me, so I will bring prints back.

    Thanks David A. Goldfarb!
