Tinted photograph is a term used to refer to photographs produced on dyed printing papers produced by commercial manufacturers. A single overall colour underlies the image and is most apparent in the highlights and mid-tones. From the 1870s albumen printing papers were available in pale pink or blue and from the 1890s gelatin silver printing-out papers in pale mauve or pink were available. There were other kinds of tinted papers as well. Over time such colouration often becomes very faded.

Other meanings[edit]

Tinted photograph is also one of a number of names for a hand-colored photograph, i.e. a black-and-white photographic print to which color has been added by hand. Other names are hand-painted photograph and hand-tinted photograph.
