Once it was dry, albumen prints were used just like salted-paper prints and the image would form by the darkening properties of the sun on the chemicals. Most of the surviving photographs from the 19th century are on albumen paper. Albumen prints take on a rich, purple-brown hue. When you examine these photos, look for paper fibers through the albumen overlay.You can also usually see a fine lateral cracking across the glossy photo surface. The support is typically thin and also coated with albumen.
