Hi Last night I had to quickly run off a batch of 30 or so 8x10 fiber prints through my Nova slot processor by hand. Near the end I got sloppy/rushed or inadequate agitation (due to tending to other sheets in the process) and ended up with 2 or 3 prints with light brownish stains at portions of the paper margin. I am trying to pinpoint where in the sloppy rushed part I introduced the problem causing the brown stains. I think this was due to un-removed developer that was still soaked in the paper when introduced to the fixer. Or inadequate agitation in the fixer? My process (give or take): Bromophen Paper developer: 2.5 Minutes Water rinse: 10 seconds Kodak Stop Bath: appx 20 seconds Water rinse: 10 seconds Ilford Rapid Fixer 1: appx 40 seconds Ilford Rapid Fixer 2: appx 40 seconds Soak in clean H20, empty, soak, etc for a while. Thanks for your input. Thankfully most of the sheets came out without stains and today I will selenium tone those and use hypo clear and good wash and hope for the best.
