    mine does it on the presoak. Do you soak the film before you develop it?

    The new Tri-X has the same purple dye that is found in the T-Max films. The solution is the same--once you've assured that you've fixed adequately (about twice as long as for regular films), rinse, and use a wash aid like Permawash or Hypo Clearing Agent, and the dye will come out.

    Man, this question comes up so often we should make a sticky thread on it---and then hope someone actually uses the Search function.

    I wonder why this has everyone so exercised? Once the film is adequately fixed, it doesn't really matter, does it?

    If you don't fix enough and it doesn't come out in the permawash, you'll have to refix and wash and permawash (a pain).

    We actually already do have a sticky thread about the T-max purple cast, but not everyone realizes, I suppose, that this is the same issue even with different films.

    I request excuses not to search for the subject, I do not understand the English well and I use translators to be able to write in this page. The next time will try it, thanks,

    If you reuse your fixer and it's getting old, try fixing it again with fresh fixer.
    Sometimes I need to fix for 3 minutes in one bath and then another fix for about 2 minutes in another bath.

    The HCA/Permawash also helps. Generally speaking, the purple doesn't hurt your negs but underfixing them will.

    One wonders, with all the trouble with this dye and Tmax, why Kodak would make Tri-X suffer the same fate. Unless the "new" Tri-X is just Tmax in a different package....
