Why photo labs should manage quality control

Film processing

  • A correctly processed film will produce the best quality prints.
  • With declining film use, film processors must be monitored to maintain the best results.

Print processing

  • Digital printers require consistent processing quality to maintain accurate tonal scale and color rendition. Achieve the best blacks and whites possible.
  • Low process activity may result in reduced laser or led life as voltages are pushed up to compensate.
  • Processor monitoring is a prerequisite for colour management.
