    i was thinking that, next time, i would use a dichromate bleach to remove the colloidal silver layer before development. Then develop the AgX and fix. Would that work?

    I'll try a reflective scan. Hadn't thought of that. Stay posted and thanks!

    NO! This will remove all silver depending on formulation and redevelopment would restore all silver.

    Something that helps when I've got a faint negative that I try to scan is to scan it in as if it was a slide. Sometimes the scanner can see more if it thinks it is a positive image and then you can work with it first that way in your graphics program to see if you can get something. I've rescued a few pictures that way.

    Actually I meant with reflective copying the way you look at a standard silver negative to get a positive image:

    In front of a dark background, the light at ones side, twisting the film until the positive image appears.
