    Is that the sort of tray with nano coatings?

    I meant to say color printing at home, not color processing (film implied).

    Well, to broaden the scope slightly, but still a techno-enhanced thing; I've been thinking about using printouts from D/files to use for burning or dodging. The thought would be to determine the right scale to hold between lens and paper when enlarging, to make a dodging form that years ago would have been made by tracing the image and cutting out of cardboard. The printed form would be exact, and then just need cutting out. I already explore scanned negs in Pshop before investing time in the darkroom, so this would be an additional use of that work flow. Hope this isn't too "D.....L".

    well, it's green and it has those ridges on the bottom so the prints don't get stuck and it has a pouring spout so I don't spill, and--get this--it's got ridges to rest your tongs on so they don't fall in.

    Livin' the life, here.

    I know at school our alternative process classes would do this, essentially scanning their small format negs, adjusting contrast and the like to optimize for the process, and then printing them on transparencies for the final print. Maybe we're veering off course here, though.

    I am talking only about using the digital output as a manual mask to be used for standard burn/dodging. It provides an accurate outline of the area to be masked or burned in.
