    The salt I've used was sold as "kosher salt" -- it's listed as containing a tiny quantity of "yellow prussiate of potash" aka potassium ferrOcyanide -- which is not the same as ferrIcyanide used in photographic bleaches. I'm still working on getting enough contrast, however, and I think much of that has to be done on the negative side.
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    I think it should be, although I haven't tried that myself. When I did that, I had no pre-made Pyrocat-HD left. So I just took the basic raw mateials to make an ultra-staining "developer". The negative was cr*p as it was (and a backup besides), but the increased contrast made it just right for POP and salt prints.

    Is this a guarentee that I can get winners from all my cr*p negatives?

    I mixed up a batch last night so will give the pyrocat a try and see what happens.
