I don't quote line by line (because I'm too lazy to find which line to include right now), but this is in response to Richard's post. More silver solvent does not necessarily mean finer grained negative. The permissible amount for fine grain effect varies depending on the solvent as well as the overall developer activity. Too much solvent in some developer like Kodak D-8 actually promotes physical development and results in enlarged grain. Factors like bromide level also affect the solvent action of fine grain agents in the developer. Some antistain/antisludge agents are capable of enhancing granularity, accutance or both in fine grain developers. Some worsen them. So I would not think that those addenda in commercial developers optional to their specified performance. -- Ryuji Suzuki "Keep a good head and always carry a light camera." ============================================================================================================= To unsubscribe from this list, go to www.freelists.org and logon to your account (the same e-mail address and password you set-up when you subscribed,) and unsubscribe from there.
