I really like wikipedia. There is a great of very good information here.

from:
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Introduction

What is Wikipedia?

Wikipedia is an encyclopedia written collaboratively by many of its
readers. Lots of people are constantly improving Wikipedia, making
thousands of changes an hour, all of which are recorded on the page
history and the Recent Changes page. Nonsense and vandalism are usually
removed quickly, and their creators banned.

Anyone can create or edit a wiki page. There is an edit "button" on
every page. Clicking this button allows one to edit a page.

 Wiki's use a very simple "markup" system described here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:How_to_edit_a_page#Wiki_markup

To create a new page see:
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Starting_a_new_page

Please have a look at the Photographic Processes section:
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Photographic_processes

and look here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Gum_Dichromate&action=edit

there is nothing written on gum printing.
