By 1841, salted paper was made with a thin salt-filled gelatin coating that was dried then treated with silver nitrate to form a photosensitive silver halide compound. Gelatin was most commonly used as a binder, but other materials such as albumen, arrowroot starch, agar-agar, and starch were also used.
