    Has anyone ever used ilfosol s to develop prints?
    I'm traveling right now and want to make some contact prints as I'm going. All I have is ilfosol s developer and I don't know if it will work on paper. Right now that's all I have for developer and because I'm traveling I can't buy any print developer on the internet.
    What's the difference between film developers and print developers?
    Thanks

    With regards to doing it in a reasonable time the
    big difference twixt the two is activity. For starters
    add a tablespoon of washing soda, sodium carbonate,
    to a liter of your usual film strength. Allow 3 to 4
    minutes. If slow use developer less dilute. Dan
