Good question im not sure in English silver nitrate on gelatin or something like that ? Ericd 14:42 10 Jul 2003 (UTC)
Maybe simply silver nitrate process for B & W ? For color it's simple : C-41 for negative. E-6 or Kodachrome for slides. Ericd 14:45 10 Jul 2003 (UTC)
E-6 & C-41 are ISO standards. I think they have they origin in the Agfacolor ans Agfachrome processes (the Germans were on top in color process technology around 1940) like many German patent the Agfa processes became public domain after the WWII. Ericd 14:54 10 Jul 2003 (UTC)
Gelatin-Silver seems OK for B & W Ericd 20:35 10 Jul 2003 (UTC)
Yes, gelatin-silver (print) is the most commonly used terminology.
You can also further distinguish between the modern-day RC paper (Resin coated) and the historically older but still in use Baryta paper (no resin coating, baryta is the white layer between the paper and the image, enhances contrast.)
RC is the stuff you get for the day-to-day pictures (holiday pics etc) Baryta is more for the bigger formats, used by professionals, the paper is thicker, it contains more silver etc. So higher quality and price... Most musea demand Baryta prints because of their superior conservation characteristics
(edit: i'm not sure if i followed the right route to add this comment Rxke )
Yes, of course.. I got carried away. They are of course the same processes.
- There are multipul links to the collidation process. What should be done? Personally I do not think it accurate to have 4 seperate links to one process. -Vcelloho 19:49, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
What belongs here?
Category:Photographic processes says it's list "describe(s) procedures by which light-sensitive materials are made to produce an image." and that List of photographic processes is "The main article for this category". I am rm'ing to this section entries that do not meet that definition:
- Ink jet process of printing digital images
- Giclee made up neologism, not a process
- Iris print process of printing digital images
- LightJet process of printing digital images
- Vignetting creative effect
