glass needed when framing a photo?
10 months ago

I have a query about placing photos under glass?

Is it still necessary for uv purposes (fading of inks or pigments) or is there another reason that it is still done? A photo I took was given to me as a present, enlarged and professionally framed, but the glass reflects although I guess it is meant to be non reflective. Just wondering what to do. Thanks for any help.
