    Hi all,

    I've got a print on some Kodak Professional Digital paper, I've got a
    smudge of a fingerprint on a dark area of the photo. I tried water only
    to find that area turns a slight blue after a while! Plus the area gets
    sticky? Not so sure if the paper print is like that or it could be the
    sticky foam core I used when putting the paper print on it(does the
    stickyness seam through the print????). Now before anyone says wear
    gloves I sure am gonna from now on! I know this print is worth throwing
    out but any idea what to use in the future if there are fingerprints on
    a print? What do you usually use to clean of dust etc?
    Living and learning....

  2. Traditional photo paper turns blue and sticky while wet, but that goes away
    when dry.

    Finger prints and dust normally wipe off with a soft cloth, but you have to
    be careful not to scratch. I avoid gloss papers because of these problems.
