    Thanks for your respones guys. I've attached a bit of the offending blotchy photo. The fixer I was using was Fotospeed, and the toner was Speedibrew Porcelain Blue. I like the colour of the bits that have toned correctly. Could a gold toner get me something similar?

    The only other thing that could possibly be a factor is that the paper is about a year old. Don't know if that could make any difference.

    We ran some test with various warmtone papers and toners and one of the papers and Fotospeed gold toner resulted in a very blue toned photo. So, a specific paper and gold can create a strong blue tone. However, it doesn't have the same intensity as the iron toners, which has already been mentioned by les.

    i will get back to you later this evening with the specific paper as i don't have the print here at home.

    My experience is that blue iron toners are very UN-permanent, even worse that inkjet prints. :o However Speedibrew Porcelain Blue formulation is supposed to overcome this problem, so the thread is of interest.
