No, I meant it is no longer Cibachrome. It's not Ilfochrome, improved, but  
still the same stuff mostly.

Ah, but they are not simpler to do well. They are great, but still the  
glossy is very contrasty, often calling for contrast masks. I was talking  
about the highest attainable quality in printing, when I was talking about  
Portland Photographics. Many National Geographic photographers have their  
exhibits printed there.
