Process and Copy Cameras, Continued
Processing sheet films and papers with automatic processors is a two-step
sheet film and
process involving activation and stabilization. After exposure, place the film
or paper between the rollers of the automatic processor. The rollers guide
the film or paper first through a tray of activator that develops the image,
then through a tray of stabilizer. Finally, the rollers squeegee the excess
chemical from the film or paper surface. Wash the film or print with clean
cool water before hanging the print to dry.

Normally prints made from sheet films exposed by process cameras are on a
one-to-one (same size) ratio. The print is later cut and pasted onto a layout
and prepared for alteration or reproduction. Development procedures for
prints is the same as development of sheet films.
