C-Print

C-Print or Chromogenic Colour print is traditionally the common way of printing photograph using the chromogenic material and processes. The C-print or Type-C print has been in use since the 50s when Kodak introduced the chromogenic paper. The slides or negatives are exposed through different chemical layers, and reactions caused create the final photographic image.
The Digital C-Print or Lambda or Lightjet print also use the traditional chormogenic paper and process for the final output but the exposure system is a digitised one.
