Selected for museum show
After running tests on several high quality papers, this is the one selected by museum people and myself as the best to create a major museum show for a well known dead artist. The paper needs to be handled carefully as it is very prone to marks in the emulsion. It's the first paper designed to match darkroom paper that I've tried that I've really liked. I intend to print my own work on this paper as well, beautiful stuff!

For printing images
I wanted to try this paper after coming across a few favourable reviews. I produce images from both medium and dslr formats on a Pixma Pro 1 and I am very pleased with the results both in tonal range and paper finish. Although Canson does provide an ICC profile tweaking (which is pointed out by Canson) was necessary to achieve a final and delightful final copy. I have since purchased additional boxes and look forward tp the results. Personal portfolio and gallery sales/display.
Product shipped quickly and was well packaged. I downloaded the ICC profile from Canson for my printer and have made some test prints, both black and white and color. To my eye it is superior to Epson Luster but at the price I guess it should be better. Due to the price this isn't paper I will print to on a routine basis, but will be more than happy to use it when appropriate.
Smooth semi-luster paper with heavy rag stock, the Baryta is bright but mellow. It offers bright whites and deep blacks with very rich colors. It is not as warm as Epson Gold Fiber or as textured as Museo Silver Rag (two other favorites), and has become my go-to choice for fine art prints to exhibit or sell.
Love this paper! I bought the sample pack of Canson paper and tried each sheet, sometimes with the same picture to get a feel for the paper. I like the weight (gsm310) of the paper. This was one of my favorites
Nice smooth surface with a great tonal range. Feels a bit like a C paper.
I use this with my Canon Pro 100 color printer and the paper with ICC profiles combination is great. Gives a very professional appearance at home.
I print all of my color work on this Canson Baryta, or Canson Platine which is similar. Baryta is perhaps slightly sharper with a more delicate presentation because of the baryta coating, Platine is a little more lush. None of the Canson papers has any optical brightners. The whites are truly neutral looking under all light sources, and D-max is high. Baryta in sheets is nice and flat, but in rolls it has a stiff curl from the roll. Platine is a little wavy in sheets but nothing serious. Platine rolls curl like Baryta.
I have also used several Baryta papers and have found this paper hangs with the best of them. If you want a pure white this certainly stands with Hahnemuhle's Fine Art and costs less. With Adorama's free shipping you can't do better. If you want a warmer tone paper try Museo's Silver Rag or Red River's San Gabriel.
I sampled many brands and types of paper before selecting Canson Baryta Photographique for my portfolio. The weight and feel of the paper is very nice. I like everything about it except the gloss differential in highlight areas.
