The January 9, 1839 the French Academy of Sciences announces to the world the creation of the daguerreotype, the first photographic process capable of capturing a real image on a surface in an efficient way for commercial exploitation.

The system was perfected by the Gallic chemist and artist Louis Daguerre in collaboration with the also French Joseph Niépce. East daguerreotype created an image on a silver halide coated copper foil, a photosensitive compound.

The process used heat to display said image latently. Later, that image became fixed after immersion of copper plate in a solution of sodium hyposulfite.

Although the daguerreotype was not the only method of obtaining photographs yes it was the first to reduce production time making it the industry's first commercially viable rapid process. However, problems still existed since the image, once captured on the copper sheet, could not be reproduced.

Its expansion and impact was remarkable, although it was quickly superseded by other new technological advances. By 1860 the daguerreotype had been largely superseded by album printing, a process developed by the also French Louis Désiré Blanquart capable of producing a photograph on paper through a negative.
