I have this text, but I cannot find the answer for my question. Can anyone of you guys help me?

The exercise is to ask students to color copy their own wedding photograph, that of their parents, or an anonymous wedding picture, and to write a one-page fiction inspired by the image.

    What is your guess as to what “color copying” a photo might be?

  • The sentence is full of mistakes. Were you aware of that? Where did it come from?

  • It is an awkward way of saying "to make a color copy" (as opposed to a black and white copy). The expectation probably is that they will use a color photocopier.

  • Thank you guys for the answers. The text I extract belongs to a book about writing exercises for authors.

"Color copying" means you have a colored paper (that might be a photo, a painting or...), you scan it into a printer and then print out one or several copies of this paper (in color mode).

As far as I can understand, in this exercise students are supposed to make a copy of their own wedding photograph (and some other pictures). These copies should be colored, not black and white.
