    Ole, the Amidol Plus developer, Amidol and Catechol 2 bath developer mixture, you recommend looks very interesting. Do you or anyone else know if it is readily available in the US in a kit? Of if not in a kit, best way to acquire the chemicals for putting a mixture kit together? Thanks. Jon

    Once again I know little about availability in the US. I bought mine from Germany, but that's much easier for me living in Norway!

    Pre-exposure? Do you mean pre-flashing the paper?

    Yes. I think it Howard Bond's article in Darkroom Techniques
    which detailed the water bath and pre-exposure methods
    for local contrast control. Start with one grade higher
    paper and/or a higher contrast developer. Both
    methods lower local contrast. Dan
