Now available from your digital file Silver Halide Prints. This is the same print you would receive from your negative.. The primary element for light capture in photography is the silver halide crystal. When exposed to light, this crystal forms a small, stable “latent image” that is highly amplified during photographic development. In black-and-white photography the reduced metallic silver forms the image. In color photography, the oxidized developer is used to create a colored image in register with the developed silver. Sensitivity to light, or photographic speed, is one of the most important attributes of the emulsion. Intrinsic sensitivity is typically enhanced during manufacture by a heat treatment in the presence of tiny amounts of sulfur and gold compounds (chemical sensitization). Organic dyes, usually cyanine dyes, are then applied to the crystal surface to extend the basic UV and blue sensitivity to other colors in the visible spectrum (spectral sensitization). Different layers in a color film contain emulsions that have been dyed to respond selectively to blue, green, and red light, thus making color photography possible. The silver halide emulsion literally “sets the scene” for the subsequent complex chemical processes that lead to the formation of a colorful image. The perennial challenge to Kodak’s emulsion scientists is to increase film speed while maintaining image quality and keeping performance.
