With positive platemaking and conventional printing plate production, a positive film is used as the original, that is, the non-translucent, blackened sections of the film correspond to the ink-accepting surface elements on the plate.

In the case of negative platemaking with “negative plates” a negative film is used as an original, that is, the ink-accepting image areas of the printing plate correspond to the translucent, light areas on the film. The light-sensitive coating is hardened on the printing plate by light, so that it stays in place after the developing process, as opposed to the unexposed areas, which are removed.
