How To Deal with Sticky, Noisy Doors?

Good Questions

Q: My husband and I just moved into a great apartment with one flaw: the doors and jambs were freshly painted before we moved in, and now when you open them, they make terrible, loud crackling noises like the paint wasn't allowed to dry before closing the door. Normally we could live with this, but we have an infant who is a very light sleeper! Is there any way we can fix this problem?
