    To whom it may concern,

    As you might know, I offer a bunch of picture taking and darkroom equipment aids on my website in the 'Library' section. I recently did some work on that to make it more graphical and give some visual clues to what might be of interest for a download. As always, all downlaods are for personal use only, but they are totally free in that case.

    Enjoy and feed-back welcome.

    For anyone in need of a great black and white resource, check out Ralph's book. "Way Beyond Monochrome". Many in-depth chapters and additional darkroom-picture taking aids. It's the best book i've seen on the subject.

    Thanks. I do have your book, however printing drawing in pdf is much better and more convenient than copying page from the book. May be you would consider accompanying CD with some pdf files for your next book. I hope it will be one.

    Ralph, you are AWESOME!!! :D

    I've added the enlarger height comp chart to my collection of your fine resources. I would be lost without those zone dials for exposure ever since Mike Castle showed me how to use it last year.

    Thanks so much!! :smile:
