    Yeah, you should have scanned the pages as B&W line art maybe in the neighborhood of 800dpi. These are grayscale which is harder to read and keeps the file size high.

    However the contents of the GAF/Ansco formula book have been reproduced so widely over the last 70 or 80 years that any risk of running into copyright issues would be negligible.

    This book was published by a now defunct company, the contents were originally published by the German owned Agfa Ansco company, which was seized by the US Government during WWII and very conveniently never returned to the parent company after the war ended.

    There would be more of an issue if the material was being used for financial gain, instead of an academic resource for photographers.

    And that's why no-one will ever be interested in the copyright of a GAF 1950 publication

    I believe the last user of that plant was a company called Anitec who made film and plates for the graphic arts. They were swallowed up by Kodak a long with Polychrome. Anitec I do believe was the old GAF company. So Kodak would own those copyrights.

    Thanks! It's interesting that Commercial Orthochromatic shared the same code as Tri-X. And here I always figured the manufacturers coordinated those.

It's a generous medium, photography." -- Lee Friedlander

    Kodak only bought the graphic arts division of Anitec, so no they wouldn't have the copyright of the Anscp Formulae.

    Dumb question, perhaps...

    What is meant by the terms clean-working and soft-working? I've never seen 'dirty-working' formulae, and maybe a 'hard' vs soft one would be high contrast...or...?

    Thanks

    D76 isn't "clean working" you get a very slightly higher base fog level, some of the PQ formulas used for machine processing were very "clean" working.

    You can see the difference with the negatives. Soft and hard is of course the contrast, papers were also sold as soft & hard. So ID-3 was Ilfords Soft developer, and ID-14 the Hard-Contrast developer.
