And another thing. Kodak now have a Dektol in liquid. POLYMAX Paper Developer 500ml Liquid.
'Neutral to cold working paper developer, recommended by Kodak for virtually everything. Liquid is the best value, diluting 1+9. Powder packings dilute 1+2. Kodak Polymax is a re-named Dektol in a small packaging.'
I may find this easier. But I'm unclear, what is the equivalent dilution to get the same 1+1 or 1+2 strengths that you would use when dektol is mixed from powder?
So I'm guessing that when the Kodak sheets says 1:2 for Dektol stock from powder they really mean 1+2 and when they say 1:9 for the dektol liquid they really mean 1+9.
Therefore 1+2 stock from powder is equivalent to 1+9 from liquid and so that 1+1 is equivalent to 2+9 of the liquid form.
