I do know of one new (2008) process from researchers in Austrailia. It uses a new fingerprint powder made from nanoparticles of zinc oxide. Reports I have read state that the nanoparticles are very good at sticking to the fingerprint residue but not to the background surface and that the system worked exceptionally well in wet conditions. When the material with fingerprints is immersed in a solution of the nanoparticles, it delivered very clear prints.
There is a pre-mix solution basically of photo-Flow and print powders called: Small Particle Reagent, or SPR. This can be ordered through most Forensic companies. As far as lifting....Place a scale beside the print and photograph. If you do not have a 1:1 lense for the camera, then place the photo in a photo "shop" type program and use your scale to tell the program how big the image is. You can then print the item at real size and submit to a fingerprint database such as AFIS or IAFIS.
Hope that helps...
