I'm pretty sure. If not that, then it is definitly in the film itself.

Yes, most photos are made with gelatin, I don't think it is in the gloss, but in the film.

Yes, gelatine is used to "cover" the image on the paper.



It's on glossy and non-glossy photo's



Word is that (some) photo print paper also have such a layer on it.

I didnt know that either. I guess thats another good reason to own a digital camera instead. So if it's on the film, then the glossy computer paper should be okay... ??

i've definetly read that film uses gelatin, like when you see a movie they use gelatin on that film too. kind of sucks. actually, no it really sucks. i never thought about glossy paper though, that's a really good question. ???

Why can't they use something else though? Surely people can think of other things instead of killing animals for everything under the bloody sun?

film=gelatine

and yes they have tried using many other things to make film of, none of them worked well enough to go into production. there's some interviews with glen e. friedman (famous band/skateboarder photographer) who's a vegan where he addresses this and mentions how he's actually worked with kodak to develop a non-gelatine based film.



he suggests people get into digital photography, which with the new digital slr's is a viable alternative.
