The term alternative process refers to any non-traditional or non-commercial photographic printing process. Currently, the standard analog photographic printing process for black-and-white photographs is the gelatin silver process.[1] Standard digital processes include the pigment print, and digital laser exposures on traditional color photographic paper.[citation needed]

Alternative processes often overlap with historical, or non-silver processes. Most of these processes were invented over 100 years ago and were used by early photographers.[2][3]

Many contemporary photographers are revisiting alternative processes and applying new technologies (the digital negative) and practices to these techniques.
