    I just want to pick up on this even though this thread is coming to an end.

    A few posters have demonstrated so far that a safelight is safe with colour and many use chemicals at room temperature. It's not a joke to claim this. Once you have some experience the colour balance issue isn't really that much of an issue. Colour paper does age quicker, but that doesn't make printing more difficult.

    I think it's correct to say that once you've nailed RA4, there's little to talk about. With B&W there's so many variations to chat about.

    So funny. I use Google to see how to spell Millennium and don't take the time to lookup what it means.

    Redsun, since my post pointing out that certain safelights were safe with colour RA4 printing at least three others who have had experience with RA4 have said the same but you still state the opposite.

    These three are not the only three whom I know to have stated this. Over the years and thousands of posts on colour others have also stated the same.

    If you regard APUG as a forum to ask questions and gain knowledge I think you need to ask yourself why APUGers whom in the past I have never seen getting annoyed, have done so.

    One day those APUGers who can help you may decide not to do so or have already done so based on an impression you have given them which would be a pity for you. It won't affect them.

    I have assumed so far that your aim is not deliberate provocation. If so then I suggest you ask yourself how to get information and discuss matters on APUG without upsetting others.

    When it is clear that your position differs diametrically from others and the discussion can go no further without things getting nasty then it is time to say " I respect your position but we will have to agree to differ" It works wonders.

    Sometimes threads come to a natural end and it is then time to move on.

    I think I asked the right question at the wrong forum. This is a B&W forum. So no members here would admit that B&W is easier to do on the technical side. That is fine. We just move on.

    On the safelight discussion, it is not me who says that safelight is not suitable for color printing. If you open any books on photography, read any labels on any color papers, they all say the same thing. I've heard some horror stories on some stores who sell cut color papers cut under some "safelight" and the papers were all fogged. I know Thomas safelight has the filters for color printing, but users have different opinions on it. I have the Thomas light and color filters, but I do not use it for color printing.

    Same thing with processing in open tanks and in room temperature. Room temperatures can range between 605 F to 75 F. I do not think that the results would be the same with the same room temperature chemicals.

    It is like going to a building work area where there is a sign "Keep out, Dangerous". But someone does not believe it and goes there often. Then he would say it is perfect safe to ignore the warning. Then some day, a brick fell and hit him hard.....

    Anyway, if someone does not agree with my observation, that is fine. This person does not have to use strong words against me. I realize I asked in the wrong forum. We just move on....

    I haven't printed color in a long time but, when I did, it was RA4, in trays, at room temperature. The chemistry temperature would drop (or rise) about 5 degrees, during the sessions, depending on whether it was winter or summer. To check on shifts, at the end of the printing session I would return to the first negative and re-print it. There was absolutely no change in the results.

    I dunno. I've seen safelights used with color. Maybe I am just a wacko. Take some time and really try to master either technique instead of belittling one over the other or inferring information without experience. From the other posts, it's clear experience in darkroom, whether color or BW, is lacking.

    Added to ignore list. Done Trolling.

    Huh, another one? If you keep posting, that means you do read it and not ignore it. I've not seen a more silly way to make a statement.
    I started working in darkroom probably before you picked a camera the first time.
