Yes, Ed, I think you re-stated my frustration quite well. My concern with a colored or filter dodger is that filters still let the image through somewhat and I'm afraid that the waving about in front of the image will let some of the image through distorted. I'll try it though and let you know.
I tried tri color printing last night to see if I could better control which colors are dodged/burned in. It was better but time consuming. I have 324 images to resolve this for, so the time cost will be frustrating with tri color. Again, something like the tri tone separation using hard line negatives that don millikan mentions in another thread might be adaptable to this problem, but to do so for so many images would be nuts.
Thanks so much for the quick response.
