Photographer's Note

Transparency may refer to:

* Transparency (optics), the physical property of allowing the transmission of light through a material
* Transparent materials, materials which exhibit the physical property of allowing the transmission of light. A description of the physical mechanisms responsible for the absorption and/or scattering of electromagnetic radiation (or light).

Literal uses:

* Electromagnetically induced transparency, an effect in which a medium that is normally opaque at a particular wavelength is caused to become temporarily transparent
* Pentimento, an alteration in a painting, often revealed with growing transparency in paints with age
* Transparency (photography), a still, positive image created on a transparent base using photochemical means
* Transparency (projection), a thin sheet of transparent material for use with an overhead projector

In computing and mathematics:

* Transparency (computing), user and engineering design considerations, including
o Location transparency if the names used to identify network resources are independent of both the user's location and the resource location
o Network transparency if there is no difference between the centralized database and the distributed database
* Transparency (digital design), the property of a latch to show input changes immediately on output
* Transparency (data compression), the ideal result of lossy data compression
* Transparency (telecommunication), the property by which a transmission system passes a signal through without changing its form or content
* Transparency (graphic), for overlay and translucency in PNG, GIF, and TIFF files
* Transparency (pseudo), or background translucency in the X or X11 Window System
* Referential transparency in programming designates a deterministic function
* Security through transparency, a security engineering methodology which attempts to get as many people as possible reviewing code, with the hope that they will maintain or at least point out bugs in it, improving security over time.
