    ok, here's the question after reading all the pros and cons of matte and glossy photo.

    What is the difference in picture outlook when u place a piece of thin glass over a matte photo and comparing it with a glossy photo of the same picture?

    Is it better or same or not as good?

    Thanks!

    Hi, for wedding photo, I use matte with glass frame. For ordinary photos which I don,t value
    to show around, I use glossy.

    I used to print glossy only, but after several got permanently stuck to the glass frame, I've stopped. Nowadays, it's matte only.

    Image appears sharper and black are deeper comparing glossy with semi-gloss satin/matte.
    Depends on mood, artistic stuff I prefer to print on Matte/Satin.

    mmm.. doesn't realli happen to me
    i like glossy cos i kinda think its sharper
    they dun stick together unless i stack em up
    and keep them for a long period
    then they'll stick

    Matte to look at for long time without getting bored,
    Glossy to have instant "WOW" which dies off after a while.

    It is not true the matt finish will last longer. It really depends on the chemical and print quality.

    I actually have my Europe vacations photo on glossy which still lasted longer than my honeymoon photo printed on matt. The lab and papers used are different.
    Good photography is not so much about what you use as the way that you use it.

    Matt for normal everyday pic, glossy for special/nice pic

    Definitely Matte.
    The same reason why most Mac users prefer matte to glossy screen.

    I will print in matt unless request by client. I think that matt last longer too.
