    Doing some Google searching for 'copper intensifier' turns up many different types/formulas/approaches. However, Google searching for "Ansco copper intensifier" shows it was $5 a package in 1960 and 'that you simply disolved the power in water and it was ready to use'.

    Sadly, for copyright reasons the articles are shown only in a brief 'snippet' form. It would take a trip to a library to read the full articles.

    Thanks I Did the same search and because of all the results I was confused that's why I asked, I'm glad you saw the Ansco specific one. At least it's "ready to use" haha

    No opposites involved though - intensifier makes the negative itself look thicker (less transparent), while reducer makes the negative itself look thinner (more transparent).
    Thanks Matt,

    That was clear, appreciate it.
