Learning Event 1
DESCRIBE THE CONVENTIONAL PROCESS OF PRINT PROCESSING
The Conventional Process.
a. Historically the oldest of the processes, the conventional print process consists of these steps:
b. A conventional paper (not water-resistant) consists of a silver halide emulsion coated on a
photographic paper base. A baryta (barium sulfate in gelatin) subbing is coated on the paper under the emulsion
to provide a smoother, higher reflectance base for the emulsion.
c. The exposed silver halide crystals are converted to black metallic
