Title: Image-forming method

Abstract: There is disclosed a method for forming an image on a light-sensitivematerial having on a base at least a light-sensitive silver halideemulsion and a binder, which comprises, subjecting at least onelight-sensitive layer to exposure to light, by using an exposure head thathas a plurality of different light sources for emitting lights inrespective specific wavelength regions correspondingly to adjacentexposure picture elements, to form an image, wherein, in the specificwavelength regions from the shortest wavelength to the longest wavelengthfor the respective plurality of light sources to be used, the change insensitivity of the light-sensitive material in the spectral sensitivitycurve obtained by plotting the sensitivities of the light-sensitivematerial in terms of the specific wavelength regions including thewavelengths in centers of gravity of respective light sources is 0.01 logE/nm or less. According to the method, the unevenness of exposure densityresulting from a plurality of exposure light sources can be improved.
