same experience here with the glossy Photo paper, around the white borders of the image. Not much evidence of it on the image itself. I think it is due to the nature of the hydrophylic surface (water loving), and I suspect the interaction of that and moisture in the air. I have been spraying my prints with a lacquer of late. Would love to hear if anyone knows whether this has any archival effect that is proven.
