IT-8 is fairly unique in that it "Intensifies" the image during toning which can be a bounus, the prints do need a lot of washing after bleaching before redevelopment. For anyone who hasn't tried it essentially it uses a Dichromate rehalogenating bleach, similar to Dichromate intensifier and that's followed by a Pyrocatechin staining re-developer. The tones are reminiscent of some lomg lost warm tone papers which gave a deep olvive brown tone.
