    Been asked before, but wouldn't powder form help for keeping long term between yearly batches?

    I recently found an open bottle of both cool tone and warm tone developers that I had packed away a few years ago. Tried them out and they both are working like new, so it certainly seems to keep. I'm most fond of the warm tone, but I'd probably use a few bottles a year of the cool tone.

    Thanks Simon

    Another question for your on-board chemists.

    Is there any chance that the cool-tone developer could be approximated by combining an existing Ilford Developer and a proprietary additive?

    That way you could offer the additive on a special run basis, without impacting your regular lines.

    • Thank you, sincerely, for your efforts Simon. To say I'm blown away by the commitment to analog and the customer service would be a gross understatement.

    • I'd be certainly open to a yearly buy if such a scenario would be more feasible for your company.

    • Did I say thanks for your superior products and tireless efforts..?

    Wow. I am so thoroughly impressed by the way you gentlemen run your company...

    I've never tried the Cooltone Developer. However, I am fond of a cooler look. So in the spirit of demonstrating support to those manufacturers who do so much to support us, I'll commit to purchasing several bottles and give it a try. If it turns out good for me, that will be great and I will happily purchase more. If it turns out not so good for me, then I'll give away the remaining bottles for free in the APUG Classifieds.

    Would it be possible/feasible to make a warmtone and cooltone additive to add to standard developer?

    Very cool. I'd buy a bottle a year even if I didn't use that much...

    I would buy a few bottles and hand out a few free samples to fellow photographers. That way I could get them to order some in the next batch produced.
