    View the Entire Negative Exposure Tests

    The 2 up on 5x7 method I've mentioned in post 8 is a straight

    second exposure is needed each print. Up to the entire area
    of the negative may be printed then evaluated.

    I've abandoned strip testing. For those who use an Enlarging
    meter of who's ever manufacture the step up to full size
    prints is simplified. Dan

    A very stylish type face with huge capitals and extremely small lower-case letters. Attached is a screen shot.

    Dan could you elaborate on your method of test strip. Whats 2up??

    Nicholas - the pdf looks like Ralph's does on my computer. It maybe Arial like, but it's not Arial. I think it's the extended font and the extra spacing in the words that make it look funky. Like something from Star Trek. That's fine for labelling Turbolifts and Jeffries Tubes, but it's hard to read your article that way.

    Nicholas - on my screen it looks like Ralph's screen-shot too and is hard to read. Have you ticked the "embed fonts" box when you generate the pdf file? If not, results are unpredictable as the reader's computer will select one it thinks might be similar, but it's often wrong!

    I don't use test strips very often. Instead I cut a piece of paper into 2" or 3" squares, estimate the exposure and try it on an area with a good range of tones. After two or three of these 'test squares' I am usually there.

    I bought a Paterson enlarging meter a few days ago for £2. I haven't had a chance to try it yet though.

    Two up is two prints on the same sheet. With a 5x7
    sheet each print is about 3 1/2 x 5. The exact size
    depending upon the negatives format.

    I use a 5x7 Single size Speed Easel and cover half
    the sheet with a card for each of the two exposures.
    Quick and easy to do. Full negative exposures make
    evaluation easy too. I may be doing some 5x7
    testing using 8x10 sheets. Dan
