A study of the stability of the latent image in High Resolution Plates is presented. Two factors have been investigated- relative humidity before and after exposure and the length of time under such conditions. It was found that in conditions of 60% relative humidity or less, fading does not pose any real threat to the commercial user and that under 100% R.H. conditions fading takes place quite rapidly.
