Inventions of Photography - Chapter 11 - Color Photography

A note from the filmmakers:

Those of us who remember the typical 4”x6” color film print might be surprised at the amazing technology that went into making what we used to take for granted. Tiny layers of dyes and gelatin silver combined to make minute patterns of color that, through a trick of the eye, would appear as a fully realized color image. The process in which the brain blends tiny patterns of selective colors has survived into the digital age in the form of the modern LCD screen. As we face the end of the film era, the complex industry used to make color print film is in jeopardy of extinction.
