Bronzing of silver-gelatin prints can happen in unsized, baryta or
resin coated prints. This problem is effectively prevented by treating
prints in any of the sulfiding toner or selenium toner.

The problem Ctein described is specific to RC. He also showed that
selenium toning or AGFA Sistan was sufficient to prevent the symptom
in his test condition. And to be accurate, it was ONLY WHEN the print
was framed, not "especially if."

Bronzing may occur as a consequence of a number of different
conditions, and it is not that gas-tight enclosure and light exposure
are necessary to induce bronzing in silver images. Proper toning in
sulfiding toner and ideal storage condition would virtually eliminate
the risk of bronzing problem.
