In the darkroom, a negative is exposed to light in an enlarger. This creates a latent image on the photographic paper. The paper is put through a series of chemical baths. One chemical develops the print. Another fixes it. Finally, the print is washed. Black-and-white and colour films require different combinations of chemicals.
Digital prints are made by transferring an image from the camera memory card to a computer hard drive or a printer. If desired, the image can be manipulated using imaging software. The final image is then output on a printer.
There are currently four printer technologies on the market that print digital images on paper: dye-sublimation, ink-jet, laser, and thermal-wax.
