Shelly, the Lauder chemicals are OK. You used them for both film and print development. The film developer is generic D76 and the Lauder print developer is very similar to Dektol. I say similar to Dektol as I think Lauder has changed the chemistry, the developer has a definite green tint and leaves a strange residue. (Ask Aggie she developed some Ortho film in the print waste water - and they turned out great).

If you are using VC paper then a soft developer (Selectol) is not really needed. If you are using Graded paper then you can use Selectol to go down like half a grade (some people will mix selectol and dektol to get better control using graded paper).

Personally I buy the packaged Kodak Dektol and D76 which are both in powder form.
