|slide / tranparency|
Although the word diapo or diapositiva normally means slide, and transparencia means transparency, in my experience diapo can also be used to refer to transparencies. Slides are generally 35 mm mounted transparencies. Medium format transparencies are generally not mounted with plastic frames, but can be mounted with cardboard ones. Agencies often do this. Anyway, I am not 100% sure what they mean here without more context, but I am not convinced they mean slide.
Hope this rather incoherent explanation is of some use.
Transparency Mounts & Filing Accessories for Photographers
Self-sealing cardboard slide mounts for 35mm, all 120 film sizes, 4"x5", and panorama formats. Archival slide sleeves and slide storage pages for all mount sizes. Label, captioning and image filing supplies for "stock" photographers. Archival ink jet and photo quality papers for use with Epson and HP inkjet printers.
To apply send the application form (below) with one 35mm slide (or a 4x5 transparency) of your most typical style of work. Publishers who are interested in your work will want to see at least 12-20 more renditions in this same style. If you would like ArtNetwork to choose which piece might best represent your style, you may send up to five slides. We will choose one to exhibit. Make sure your slide/transparency is well-taken, as this is the slide/transparency we will use for reproduction. We do not require a resumé, as publishers are less interested in your history, they are more interested in your style and the impact of your work.
Q. What is a 4x5 transparency?
A. A 4x5 transparency is a film positive just like a 35mm slide, only larger. It is made using a larger 4"x5" format camera. Transparencies make better reproductions than photos printed from negatives, and larger reproductions require larger transparencies. If a 35mm slide is enlarged too much, the image is degraded. For magazine or book illustration, 4x5 is adequate, but for art print reproduction, 8x10 is preferable for larger-size prints. Making a 4x5 enlargement of a 35mm slide is not acceptable for reproduction.
Transparency: The key here is transparent. You can see through a portion of the image, or enough light shines through the image to make it visible. Transparencies are also considered "positives," that is, the image is correct in its color balance (as opposed to a negative) . Transparencies come in all sizes from smaller than 1/8" in diameter to 8"x10". A slide is nothing more than a mounted transparency.
