Definition: Photographic copy of original photograph, usually transparency or negative: copy should reproduce colours, contrast and detail of original as closely as possible. * Duplicate may be larger than original. * Each duplication step causes a loss in sharpness and resolution but some improvements in e.g. colour balance can be made. * Duplication or copy of a digital file entails no such losses.
