    Hi,

    When developing two films with the Tetenal C-41 kit, part of it happen to be in contact during the whole processing time. There is nothing to do with the one that has the emulsion side in contact, but the one that was joined on the back side produced what it look like a decent image. However, instead of having the usual orange look, it's turn out to be very green.

    Is there anything that can be done to recover this part of the negative, like rebleach, refix or reblix ?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

    It should be the antihalation, I have experienced this with some Agfa films in paper drum and format holder. With thoroughly washing managed to get rid of the green.

    You can always bleach, fix, wash and stabilize to be sure. But you must do the entire tail of the process. Don't forget decent wash and stabilizer. If you wash later, you must use stabilizer once more, and don't wash after it.

    That was it. A good wash and it was gone. Thanks.
