Ilfochrome, AKA Cibachrome, is pretty simple although it can become more complicated if you want maximum quality. I will leave it to others to detail the process but I think you mainly need color correcting filters for the enlarger. While you _can_ process Ilfochrome in trays its better to use drums. Because the image on color film is made up of semi-transparent dye particals of very small size there is no significant difference in image contast between a diffusion and condenser light source. A diffusion source tends to suppress film blemishes a little.Hello Pure Silver List,I have a B&W darkroom with a condensing enlarger and I'm wondering if I might be able to print Ilfochromes without having to buy more stuff!? How difficult is the Ilfochrome process? Is it practical in a basic B&W darkroom? A year and a half of black and white, and I'm starting to crave color. I might end up with an ink jet... but I'd rather find an analogue process.Thanks, Elias
