Qualifications - An Overview

Grain

Processed silver halides that clump together to form an image. The finer the grain the more detailed the image will be. Clumps of silver halide grains in film and paper that constitute the image. These grains are produced both in the exposure process (film grain) and in the development process (paper grain). Unlike film, the grain in printing paper is largely responsible for the image tone.
