C-type colour print

A colour print, one of three main types of chromogenic print material, made from a negative, on print material containing at least three emulsion layers of silver salts, each sensitized to one of the three primary colours of light. Dyes are added after initial monochromatic development to form the colours in the emulsion layers. A chromogenic print contains no silver in the final image and is not as stable as a dye destruction print.
