    The Jobo website actually used to have a guide for contact printing with their analyzers. It would be tough for 8x10. I guess if you had access to an 8x10 enlarger But you could use the same idea if you shoot a second shot with a smaller format on the same film.

    Stick the smaller format into the enlarger. Focus and setup for 8x10 to match the contact print. Analyze. Then take out the smaller negative. Stick the contact frame on the baseboard and go. It should get you close. If it's not perfect you can adjust.

    I'll add that I do my color printing at room temperature. I use a mix-it-yourself formula that I know PE has said is sub-optimal, but I'm satisfied with it, and it has the advantage of being adjustable for faster work at room temperature by the addition of some sodium hydroxide, so this is the variant I use.

    I've considered the possibility of using a heating pad to raise the temperature of the developer in a tray to more traditional RA-4 temperatures (or at least a bit higher than the rather chilly room temperature I get in winter), but I haven't tried this yet. Any thoughts on this?
