If I have Luster paper but select matte in media type do I get different result

I have a digital painting and the luster paper seems like its more for photgraphy.  If I selected matte will I get different results for my drawing? I need to know best setting for this situation. I am still looking for the right paper for Artwork.

Matte paper is nice for art work. Selecting Matte media type but using luster paper most likely won't give good results, but it only costs you one sheet of paper to try it.

 

You can try different papers and see which one you like. Red River paper offers a sample pack with a number of their papers. Canon used to offer a sampler but they don't anymore.

Mske sure you read and understand how the printer works and how to use PS.  From your posts I have my doubts. Smiley Frustrated

Red River is a great company.  They have a wealth of info on Canon printers on their web site.
