    "Dye coupler print" ??

    I was at my local public art gallery today, looking at some Edward Burtynsky prints.

    They're quite large, and the accompanying descriptions have them listed as "dye coupler prints". What is that, exactly? Is that the same as a c-print?
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    It is improper nomenclature, but refers to color analog prints as having couplers in them which form dyes during development. Thats about it.

    Yes, I think that would be a C-print, though it's more common to call them "chromogenic prints." Ciba/Ilfochromes are usually called "dye destruction prints" or "dye bleach prints", and color Polaroids are usually "dye diffusion prints."

    Yes, "C" print was a trade name for a now defunct Kodak paper.
