    Poco, try scanning the neg as a tranie. The scanner software will not introduce as much bias. If your sw allows a raw scan (no optimization of the histogram or curves) this should work as well.

    Poco,
    You can use bleach bypass in the RA4 printing stage, replacing the blix with standard b&w fix. It reduces saturation but boosts contrast, much like you seem to be getting with the negative bleach bypass.

    psvensson,
    Excellent information!
    Would this in combination with a pulled (very flat) neg achieve a normal contrast, low saturation print -- as in a pastel print?

    Possibly. I know it can be used to save underexposed negs - the contrast boost gives sort of a retroactive push.

    The advantage of doing this in the printing step is that it avoids the added grain that I understand is the side effect of neg bleach bypass.
