Silver gelatine film and silver gelatine paper gave faster speeds, ease of operation and printing which reduced costs and spread photography to the amateur market , 'You press the button and we'll do the rest'. This led gifted and rich amateurs to seek something more artistic and in accordance with art fashions such as Japonaiserie and impressionism. Prominent among these processes was gum bichromate printing where the printer could choose the colours, the sharpness and the tones. In this case the pigment was incorporated in the dichromated gum which hardened in proportion to the light.
