    Well Dan, thanks for the replay . I'm still confused how the two prints on the one 5X7 make a test strip. Are you stepping the exposer on each print?

    I usually guess-timate a first least exposure then after
    rotating the paper give a second exposure half again
    longer. Often one sheet with the two exposures has
    me in the ballpark and I'm ready to go with best
    estimate to 5x7; one exposure.

    What sold me on the method is having ALL of the
    intended print's image available for evaluation.
    I believe the method to be two or three birds
    with one stone. Dan

    Ok Dan, haven't tryed that,What do you do when making larger prints than your two mini's , re guess-timate or somehow calculate print exposer?

    Going up from 3 1/2 x 5 to 5x7 calls for a near doubling of
    the exposure. If one of the "minis" is close I add or subtract,
    as the case may be, some little exposure from that near
    doubling. IIRC, that is the same procedure used by
    those making test strips.

    Once THE correct exposure has been determined an enlarging
    meter will nail it for larger or smaller prints. I've an Ilford
    EM-10. Darkroom Automation offers a much more
    refined unit. Dan

    Thanks Dan,now it is more clear to me.I dont have a enlarging meter but plan to get one soon,probably form Dark room auto.herd some good things about their unit.See your point in printing the full neg for evaluating the print as a whole.

    There is a formula for calculating the new time when changing the height of the enlarger head.

    New time = (New length of projected image divided by original length of image) squared multiplied by the original time

    Sorry for the long winded way of writing it but I can't write the formula in the normal way on my computer.
