    I printed some old Galerie matt not long ago-don't like it. What I want is a grade 1 glossy!

    Have you thought of developing a G2 in a very soft working developer, or preflashing it to reduce contrast?

    Does Galerie respond to water bath?

    Or just learn how to make negs that print well at G2 or 3.

    Water bath or Freestyle version of Selectol Soft, or more dilute regular developer or pre-flash.

    I can only remember two papers I have used that responded well to water bath. Fotokemika Emaks and Kodak Azo.
    I only used one box of Galerie ever, and never tried water bath. Have you tried it? Just curious.

    I normally use Beers' Soft Developer-Selectol Soft or similar would work great too.

    Nope. Just throwing our some potential ways to lower contrast. I've used Selectol Soft (many years ago) and a bit of pre flashing. There are more ways to lower contrast of a graded paper than to increase it, or so it seems to me.
