The quality or state of being reticulated, or netlike; that which is reticulated; network; an organization resembling a net.
Fine, irregular pattern appearing on the surface of an emulsion which has been subjected to a sudden and severe temperature change during development.
Occurs during processing when the emulsion becomes cracked or distorted. The cause is usually exaggerated temperature variance or differences in chemical activity between solutions.
Cracking or distorting of the emulsion during processing, usually caused by wide temperature or chemical-activity differences between the solutions.
(photography) the formation of a network of cracks or wrinkles in a photographic emulsion
an arrangement resembling a net or network; "the reticulation of a leaf"; "the reticulation of a photographic emulsion"
color pattern resembling the mesh of a net
The formation of a coarse, crackled surface on the emulsion coating of a film during improper processing. If some process solution is too hot or too alkaline, it may cause excessive swelling of the emulsion and this swollen gelatin may fail to dry down as a smooth homogeneous layer.
A special effects darkroom technique that creates an overall pattern in film by subjecting it to extreme changes in the temperature of the processing solutions.
(from L. rete, meaning a net.) A net-like pattern. Reticulation of the gelatine is produced when the temperature of the emulsion is lowered quickly, which causes the emulsion to shrink and crack, resulting in an irregular pattern. Reticulation is used in e.g. collotype. In polymer photogravure, contact failure caused by insufficient suction can cause a similar fault.
regular crazed pattern created on the emulsion surface of negatives which is caused by extreme changes of temperature or acidity/alkalinity during processing.
A crinkling of the gelatin emulsion on film that can be caused by extreme temperature changes during processing.
