    prints -meaning

    Hello all :)

    I'd like to ask you about the meaning of "prints" in this particular context. What does it mean? Thank you very much!


    - After compact automatic cameras became available I took a lot of snaps, particularly when my daughter was young. This was a habit I kept up until fairly recently. I used to put them lovingly in albums, until I saw a TV- programme which pointed out that those clingfilm-style albums are terrible for the prints.

    It means the photos in physical (print, not digital) form. Before the invention of digital cameras, photos were usually printed on gloss/matte paper.
