    Well, if the negative is underexposed, thats it ; its toast. You can't recover what is not there. If the subject matter is strong enough (like a historic photo of a soldier on a battlefield) you may be able to get by with a high contrast print with absent shadow detail.

    AA was a pioneer in the photo field. Had Photoshop been available to him he would have embraced it like a wild new lover in a very naughty dream.

    You're time saving the converted might be better served preaching to those not hooked on porno that which is Photoshop.

    Re: When You Can't Hit Max Black

    If anything I'm trying to discuss ways to do this without photoshop. I rather stare at a baseboard than a screen. How does post flashing differ from pre flashing? It seems like it would result in the same thing.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    Sometimes if the no. 5 filter is too contrasty, you can to do part of the exposure with a lower filter, such as a grade 4 or 4.5 and then finish up with the grade 5.

    If going straight to a grade five gives you max black and blown highlights, wouldn't you go to a 4.5 and expose a little longer to get your max blacks back?
