Cyanotypie is a photographic process in which a cyan-blue print is created after development.

The English scientist, photographer and astronomer John Herschel discovered this process in 1842. Although John Herschel may be the discoverer of the cyanotype process, Anna Atkins is the one who applied it in photography. She published a limited series of books with cyanotype images describing ferns and other plants. Because she used this process, she is also seen as the first female photographer.
