Dye transfer came from Kodochrome in the 1930s. It is a 30-step process with a registration matrix. The matrices hold the dyes, and you have to get the different colors aligned. Line up the matrices and press them onto the paper. The photographic element is that you use the negative to harden or soften the matrix. Dye transfer is not as highly saturated as carbo prints. It produces a more matte, even surface, so you get more relief in the image. Dye transfer is less expensive than carbo printing; you can make 100 prints with dye transfer where carbo printing would give you only two.
