Sorry, but that's entirely incorrect. The glossy screen surface actually allows the underlying pixels to be seen more clearly - that's the whole point of the glossy surface. In other LCDs the surface is coated in a material which scatters light in order to reduce unwanted reflections. Unfortunately, it not onyl scatters light relfecting on the surface, it also scatters light passing through from the backlight. The downside is more surface reflectivity.
BTW I am onyl talking about notebooks screens, I'm not cliaming to know anything photo paper.
