Final Negative

A photographic negative created in the prepress phase of printing from which plates can be made. In order to properly expose photosensitive plate material, the negatives must be right-reading, emulsion-down. Final negatives are produced from intermediate negatives, which are oriented right-reading, emulsion-up. See Negative.
