OH< OH< You're absolutely right! I think I figured out where we are differing. . . you are starting with the original negative and I am starting with a print. DUH! Dummy me, up till recently, no one ever brought in their own negatives. Everything that needed this kind of quality control has come in as prints or artwork, so I was starting with the positive image. I should be exactly backwards. I will ponder this and evaluate if it is so and reply later. Of course I will still be testing it ASAP, which now looks like sometime next week, I'm swamped. I am really looking forward to trying this because, wow! couldn't it do wonders in a difficult situation.
Lunch is over and my day is gonna be long. Bye.
