In photography and imaging, a transparency is a photographic color positive exposed on transparent film. Some common proprietary types of transparency films are Kodachrome, Agfachrome, Ektachrome, and Fuji Chrome. Transparencies are often used to generate color separations, and are used often in scanning. Common stndard sizes of transparency are 35mm, 2G" x 2H", 4" x 5", and 8" x 10". Due to the higher resolution potential of transparencies, they are preferred over prints as the original copy for scanning. A transparency is often colloquially referred to as a chrome or a tranny.
