Kodak Ready to Bridge Film and Digital? - II
This process, according to Ausnit, "has the effect of vastly increasing the dynamic range of the film and paper, allowing images hidden in deep shadows that typically appear black in photographs to print as they appear in life. Other benefits include greater detail and greater range using flashes. Pictures that are extremely difficult to print using conventional processes, such as faces backlit by a sunset, now can be printed. With PT, the number of photos that are useless and discarded because of poor exposure should be sharply reduced. This may increase satisfaction with photography and burnish Kodak's brand, not only for film and paper, but also for advanced technologies."
PT can similarly improve photos taken with a digital camera.
