Is this like glossy, matte, what? I'm trying to buy some photo paper online for a new photo printer I got, and I don't know what luster means.

I googled it and this is from the first site that came up...

Lustre finish is not as shiny as glossy, but not as flat (dull) as matte finish paper. Lustre paper has a textured finish (some call it "pebbled" that hides fingerprints. Most portraits and wedding photos are typically printed on Lustre finish paper.
