Essentially, the negative of an image, or the producing of the negative of an image.

The term reverse also refers to type or other matter that is designed to print as white on black (or colored), rather than as the typical black on white.

The term reverse should not be confused with the physical reversing of the orientation of an image, which is more correctly known as flopping.
