Abstract

For half of the 20th century, people who wanted the very best color prints, and for whom price was no object, demanded dye transfer prints. By the dawn of the new millennium, however, dye transfer printing had largely vanished from the scene. A professional photographer explains why the dye transfer process dominated the field of quality printing for so many years and describes how a range of economic and technological factors ultimately led to its decline.
