After wading through the APUG search results on "toner" I have come up with several things. Sulfite toners smell bad and considered(proven) the most archival. Gold toners are also very archival. Kodak Sepia is now Kodak Sepia II and the main result is all the bath times have changed and are a pain in Bob Carnie's a**. Agfa Sistan doesn't change the image tone, but claims for archival properties have yet to be proven (only time will tell, we'll see in a few dozen years I guess). Tim Rudman's book on toning is a must read. I do have this and will be looking through it again tonight after work. So I have several questions: 1> Are there archival toners that will change the tone (prefer warm) that do NOT have a strong smell. I can handle the smell of fixer, but have been warned sulfite toners are a little more ... robust. 2> Are there toners that don't smell bad, regardless of archival properties. 3> What is/are Hypo-Alum? Is this a toner, a toner base or am I confusing this with some type of fixer. 4> How strong is the smell of gold toners? Do these only/consistently give a blueish/cold tone? My darkroom is comendered bathroom in a high rise condo. I print on Agfa MC-111 and Ilford MG(?) FB and am currently using Agfa's Multicontrast Developer, and a non-hardening fixer. Ilford's Rapid Fixer I think. Thanks in advance for any info given.
