    -kodak royal paper, green color cast.

    -Hello to all friends, well i print in my darkroom now many pictures in those royal kodak paper in RA4.
    -The quality of paper is the same as old endura in term of handling, the color are strong and deep, black is rich, BUT i fund many times my pictures have a green color cast.. And this is color shifting, because if i put more magenta to eliminate those green, then i have to deal with over magenda...
    -Is this a problem with those paper because is optimizer for digital print? Have other try those paper?
    -Hmm i have and one idea, mayby this happen because my negatives is underexposure? but with endura in the past i don't have such a problem.
    -Any idea? is it a good point to try maybe Fuji paper?..

    Everytime I've had this problem it has been because the developer was exhausted.

    Another possibility is fogging by a safelight or some other stray light - any LEDs in your darkroom?

    Kodak Royal will indeed work under an enlarger, as will any photo-sensitive color paper. But if you are expecting results like what you got with the old supra endura, you are out of luck. Kodak Royal is a consumer paper, same emulsion as kodak edge but on a thicker base. It has nowhere near the same amount of silver as the old endura or the current professional kodak paper - Endura Premier.

    Your green cast is a good indication of poor storage or out of date paper. Is their an actual date code on the box or just an emulsion code?

    Yes. I have a 12 inch wide roll of Royal "Digital". It works fine.
    All this has happened before, and all this will happen again.
