    I bought two rolls of Edge earlier this year from UK retailer Jessops. It was so cheap that I've been printing all the time and learning lots about colour without spending very much money at all. I've got some very nice prints from it. The only hassle has been cutting sheets from the roll in my small darkroom.

    Absolutely. I find the exposure, filter packs and processing almost identical to endura. I use the exact same processing chems and times as I do for Endura. Can't beat the price for over 700 8X10s. I won two rolls of glossy and one roll of lustre. That's over 2000 8X10s for less than 100 bucks, delivered. With that much paper, I find myself experimenting a lot that I would never do with expensive endura. I cut enough to last for a while, and keep the rest in the freezer. The rolls aren't that big. While I haven't tried it for portraits, (I mainly shoot landscapes) I can't tell much difference from Endura. I find the saturation and contrast more similar to supra than portra.

    Well, right now the garage at the farm is pretty cool, and I have room there.

    You could try cutting it and sticking it in boxes to shrink it down.
