    I took some cool shots in the mountains and would like to blow one up to a larger size. It will be matted and framed under glass, so what would be the best way to have this printed. Thanks for the help.

    Assuming you go with good glass, you'll be able to tell either way whether it's matte or gloss, to it really comes down to personal preference.

    It can, however, depend upon what paper you have it printed on. RC comes in a range of matte/gloss types. Regular FB paper has a bit of a sheen to it anyway. Matte FB can be nice but scratches really eaily. And gloss FB to me just looks kinda weird.

    I prefer lustre prints. But it really is a personal preference.

    In mounting under glass, consider non-reflective glass. It can be worth the extra cost [depending on where the print will be hung, of course.]
