There are a number of methods for a person to print their photos. First, we have printing from a negative. This process is done with the use of a photographic darkroom or with a automated photo printing machine and is still being used as of today. The next process is through printing from a slide or a transparency. This process is just like printing from a negative but requires additional steps in order to form a reversal print.
These process are done with the classical camera that uses film. The images are captured and placed on to the film and the film then undergoes these process.
Presently, digital cameras are widely being used to eliminate the hassle of constantly replacing film cartridges. Digital cameras use memory sticks or cards and owners only have to detach them, load them into their computers, and erase its contents for it to be used again. Once the pictures have been loaded into the computer, they may be printed without having to use a darkroom. Also, the development of mobile printers has made photo printing a very easy task. People can now take pictures and print them at the spot without looking for a shop that would print it for them.
