The Sabattier Effect (often mistakenly referred to as solarization) is caused by exposing the film or paper to light, very briefly, during processing. The half developed image acts as a "negative" and causes a new image to form. This effect usually isn't very useful with black and white materials, but with color paper it can oversaturate the image and give very bold colors.
