I have read that scanning with a laser scanner rather than a CCD scanner (virtually all consumer grade scanners) will minimize or eliminate this problem. The light source/sensor in a laser scanner is apparently always perpendicular to the paper, with no side-lighting, so all that is measured is image density, not shadow (a little like the principle behind a ring flash).
As for another poster's recommendation of the Luminos inkjet papers, they are all (like Luminos' silver halide papers) second sourced from other manufacturers. I would be interested in the independent tests to which he refers; all I have seen are the results published by Henry Wilhelm at <http://www.wilhelm-research.com/body_index.htm>, which list results on only one of the Luminos papers - now discontinued - with only one inkset (Lyson E). Longevity in inkjet printing is totally dependent on the chemical characteristics of specific ink/paper combinations. To talk of long-lasting paper without mentioning what inkset is misleading.
Things are changing at lightning speed in the inkjet/ink/paper arena right now. If you would like to learn more, you might want to subscribe to the Leben Epson e-mail list at <http://www.leben.com>, or check the archives at
