Could you all explain how paper developer dilution affects image tone? I have gotten contradictory information, or, perhaps more likely, have mixed the information in my brain and nothing good came out.
Let's say Dektol for developer, and Ilford MGIV WT FB and MGIV FB. How does different dilutions of the developer affect the image tone of the warm tone and the neutral tone papers? Please feel free to "change papers" if you think those are inappropriate for a test like this.
I have read about adding restrainers in the developer. Are there different restrainers? Do they affect tone differently?
As always, thanks for you time and effort!
