The disclosed concept relates to a method of transferring

an image from a liquid developed electrostatographic
photoreceptor, The method involves the following steps:

1, The photoreceptor is developed and dried in the
conventional manner;

2. A fast drying, thin layer of an easily strippable
material, such as Lexan polycarbonate resin, a poly..
sulfone resin, etc., is cast over the toner image and
dried; and

3, A transparent adhesive receiver sheet is then placed

in contact with the strippable layer and the layer with
the embedded toner image is stripped from the photoreceptor
surface.

Also disclosed is a method of combining the overcoating
and post washing step normally carried out after image
transfer, In this embodiment, the developed photoreceptor
is rinsed with a low percentage solution of ethyl hydroxy

cellulose polymer and an aliphatic solvent. Upon drying
of the solvent the image is directly transferred,
