TECHNICAL DATA / COLOR PAPER
KODAK ROYAL Digital Paper is an exceptional
state-of-the-art, silver-halide paper for making direct
digital prints from digital files, as well as optical prints from
color negatives. This paper delivers bold, saturated colors,
state-of-the-art image stability, and is optimized to work
well in both digital and optical imaging systems. It replaces
KODAK ROYAL Generations, KODAK EKTACOLOR ROYAL
Plus, KODAK EKTACOLOR ROYAL IX AP, and KODAK
EKTACOLOR ROYAL X Papers.
ROYAL Digital Paper is easily identified by its thicker
support, which provides durability in handling, and by its
distinctive gold “KODAK ROYAL Paper” watermark.
This paper is available in rolls in F (glossy) and N (matt)
surfaces. It is designed for processing in KODAK
EKTACOLOR RA, KODAK EKTACOLOR PRIME, and
KODAK EKTACOLOR PRIME LORR Chemicals for Process
RA-4 or KODAK EKTACOLOR SM Chemicals for Process
RA-2SM.
STORAGE AND HANDLING
For optimum results, store unexposed paper at 13°C (55°F)
or lower in the original package. You can store unexposed
paper at 24°C (75°F) for up to 6 months and still achieve
high-quality results. High temperatures or high humidity
may produce unwanted changes.
To avoid moisture condensation on paper that has been
refrigerated, allow it to warm up to room temperature
before opening the package. For best results, remove the
package from cold storage the day before you use it, or
allow the paper to warm up for the appropriate time listed
in the following table.
Handle paper carefully by the edges to avoid creases
and fingerprints.

DARKROOM RECOMMENDATIONS
Printer Control Negative Sets
With the exception of the sizes designed for KODAK
CREATE-A-PRINT 35 mm Enlargement Centers that
minilab operators can load in room light, handle this paper
in total darkness. Be sure that your darkroom is light tight.
Eliminate any stray light from timers, LEDs, etc. KODAK
ROYAL Digital Paper is sufficiently sensitive to
photographic safelights that sensitometric shifts may
occur before D-min (fog) changes are seen.
Use the appropriate KODAK Printer Balancing Kit to
determine aims for KODAK Color Negative Films or to
cross over from another type of color paper to KODAK
ROYAL Digital Paper.
Note: Using a safelight will affect your results. If absolutely
necessary, you can use a safelight equipped with a KODAK
13 Safelight Filter (amber) with a 71⁄2-watt bulb. Keep the
safelight at least 4 feet (1.2 meters) from the paper. Keep
safelight exposure as short as possible. Run tests to
determine whether safelight use gives acceptable results
for your application. For information on safelight testing,
see KODAK Publication No. K- 4, How Safe is Your
Safelight?
EXPOSURE
You can expose this paper in automatic printers, such as
KODAK CREATE-A-PRINT 35 mm Enlargement Centers,
KODAK Minilab Systems, KODAK 312 Color Printers,
KODAK I.LAB Digital High-Speed Printers, AGFA
High-Speed Printers, GRETAG High-Speed Printers,
GRETAG Minilabs and Microlabs, NORITSU Minilabs and
Microlabs, FUJI FRONTIER and other FUJI Minilabs,
KONICA Minilabs, PHOTO-ME Minilabs, and more.
Note: Printer and balance slope changes may be
necessary. Check production after final balance. You may
want to make a color preference adjustment.
If you are using AGFA MSP or MSC printers, visit
www.kodak.com/go/colorpapers or contact your Kodak
representative to obtain Schwarzschild coefficients. Agfa's
current recommendation is that the Schwarzchild
coefficients are the same for KODAK ROYAL Digital Paper
as for previous ROYAL Papers.
LATENT-IMAGE KEEPING
For best results, process the paper on the same day that
you expose it. (If latent-image shifts occur, minimize them
by keeping the time between exposure and processing as
consistent as possible.)
PROCESSING
Use KODAK EKTACOLOR Chemicals for Process RA-4 or
KODAK EKTACOLOR SM Chemicals for Process RA-2SM.
For FUJI FRONTIER Processors, use KODAK EKTACOLOR
Processing Cartridge 111 and KODAK Rinse Tablets. Use
KODAK Control Strips, Process RA-4 to monitor your
process.
For more information on processing chemicals, see
www.kodak.com/go/photochemicals.
Use a maximum drying temperature of 96°C (205°F).
VIEWING
Evaluate prints under light of the same color and
brightness that you will use to view the final prints. For an
average condition, use a light source with a color
temperature of 5000 ± 1000 K, a Color Rendering Index
(CRI) of 85 to 100 (an index of 90 or higher is desirable),
and an illuminance up to 500 lux. Fluorescent lamps such
as a cool white deluxe lamp (made by several
manufacturers) meet these conditions You can also use a
mixture of fluorescent and incandescent lamps. For each
pair of 40-watt cool white deluxe lamps, use a 75-watt
frosted tungsten bulb.
Because voltage changes affect the light output and
color quality, use a voltage regulator. Use a
tungsten-halogen lamp to expose the paper. Do not use a
fluorescent lamp. If the printer has no means of removing
infrared radiation, use a heat-absorbing glass.
Keep negatives and the optical system of your
equipment clean. Mask negatives to eliminate stray light.
To control the color balance, use dichroic filters, KODAK
Color Printing Filters (CP), or KODAK Color Compensating
Filters (CC) placed between the lamp and the negative.
You can also use CC filters between the lens and the paper
if they are clean and unscratched. Use as few CC filters
between the lens and the paper as possible—preferably
not more than three. If you use cyan filtration, use filters
with the suffix “-2,” such as CP10C-2.
Start with a filter pack of 40M + 40Y for the white-light
method. Adjust filtration as necessary.

PRINT FINISHING
STORAGE AND DISPLAY OF PRINTS
Dust Spotting
ROYAL Digital Paper has been formulated to provide
improved dye stability and print longevity for prints
displayed under typical home lighting conditions (i.e.,
120 lux for 12 hours a day) and typical home dark storage
conditions (i.e., 20 to 23°C [68 to 73.4°F] and 50%
relative humidity). Product modifications have provided an
improvement in the fade neutrality when compared with
previous papers.
Despite the improvements in print longevity and fade
neutrality, photographic dyes, like all dyes, can change
with time and exposure to sunlight, ultraviolet radiation,
excessive heat, and high humidity. To help prevent
changes in photographic dyes, follow these guidelines:
Use KODAK Liquid Retouching Colors to correct dust spots
on prints made with this paper. To apply dyes, follow this
procedure:
1. If necessary, clean the surface of the print by buffing it
with a tuft of cotton before you start retouching. Be
careful not to scratch the surface. Protect the print
from fingerprints and perspiration by wearing cotton
gloves (e.g., KODAK Cotton Gloves).
2. Transfer a small amount of the dye(s) you need to a
palette.
3. If necessary, add a touch of neutral dye to the puddle
of pure colored dye. The neutral dye will reduce the
brilliance of the pure colors by adding density. For
good control, keep the dilutions weak by adding a little
distilled water. This allows you to build up the dye
gradually on the print. It is easier to add dye gradually
than to remove it if you apply too much.
Note: If the liquid dyes on your palette dry out, you can add
water to dilute them again.
4. Pick up a small amount of dye with your brush, and
stroke the brush on newsprint or a paper towel to blot
it thoroughly. Too much moisture can cause
opalescence, or a cloudy look, on the print. Rotate the
tip on the newsprint to form a good point. Do not use
your tongue or lips to form a tip.
5. Retouch the print with light strokes of the brush; be
sure to keep the dye within the area of the spot. Avoid
spilling over into the surrounding area. Any
overlapping will result in a dark ring around the
spotted area.
6. If you apply too much color, blot it quickly with
newsprint or you will have too much density in the
spot. If too much dye penetrates the emulsion, you
can remove it with a 5-percent clear ammonia-water
solution. (You can make a 5-percent solution by
mixing 5 parts of 28-percent liquid ammonium
hydroxide with 23 parts water.) Apply the solution
with a tuft of cotton, rubbing it with a circular motion.
Be sure to apply it only to the area where you want to
remove the dye. Then swab the area with clean
water-dampened cotton. Repeat if necessary with a
fresh tuft of cotton. Be sure to remove all of the
ammonia. Allow the area to dry thoroughly before you
resume retouching. For best results, remove
unwanted dye quickly.
KODAK ROYAL Digital Paper • E-7021
• Illuminate prints with tungsten light whenever
possible.
• Display prints in the lowest light level consistent with
your viewing needs.
• If a print is exposed to direct or indirect sunlight or
fluorescent light, use an ultraviolet-absorbing filter
(such as glass) between the light source and the print.
• For prints displayed behind glass, maintain a slight
separation between the prints and the glass.
• Keep the temperature and humidity as low as possible.
• Use album materials described in KODAK Publication
No. E-30, Storage and Care of KODAK Photographic
Materials—Before and After Processing.
Mounting/Laminating
Prints can be mounted using a contact type adhesive or
cement for cold mounting. In addition, prints can be
mounted or laminated using pressure sensitive materials
with a roller mounting or laminating system.
If the prints are to be displayed behind glass, maintain a
slight separation between the print and the glass.
Mounting or laminating prints at high temperatures is
not recommended.
