    Heather and Ian, you're losing me. Maybe I'm not understanding. Why not just try a few different developers of varying contrast or vary dilution?

    when I dupe to ortho film I just do strip tests and try different developers and dilutions. So I played with everything from PQ to full strength ID11 (1+0) to ID11 2+1 etc. Contrast control seems quite easy that way.

    Maybe I am missing the point. Heather, can you clarify what it is that you need to rescue, do you have an example?

    Prints in the gallery of mine at the moment are from negs a little on the thin side and grade5 paper won't give me the pure white highlights that I want.
    I just tried enlarging the neg onto lith film, doing my usual developing in multigrade 1+9 for 30-40 seconds and, nah, highlights are worse. Bad idea, doesn't work.

    Heather, so you are saying that your dupe lacks density, right? Am I understanding the issue?

    The original negative is lacking in density. I was hoping to up it a bit with more contrast etc by enlarging it but it didn't work. No big deal, just a crap negative.

    Ah in that case you probably will have an easier time by first intensifying or at least Se-toning your starting neg. That'll buy you a stop or two. Beyond that there is scanning. Now I understand what you and Ian were talking about by printing first.

    In my experience selenium toning typically adds about a half stop or so of denstiy to the highlights, not 1 to 2 stops.
