Ever wonder what type of photograph you have?


Is it a gelatin/silver print? or perhaps it’s an albumen print? Tintype? Is it some sort of mechanical print and not an original photo at all? How do you tell?

 Graphics Atlas is a great place to begin your research. 

“Graphics Atlas is a sophisticated resource that presents a unique, object-based approach for the identification and characterization of prints and photographs.”

From the folks at the Image Permanence Institute at RIT and the George Eastman House.
