Print made through the silver process(Gelatin) using the currently available photographic materials, the printing papers and the black and white films. In this process, the silver-salts suspension in gelatin is coated to a support that could be a film or flexible plastic, a glass, a resin-coated or baryta paper. These materials are light-sensitive and very stable under the usual keeping conditions.
