If Selectol - Soft is no longer available, what is a viable alternative? I generally use Agfa developer as I use Agfa MG paper. I wonder if a very diluted first tray would work followed by a normal second tray. Or is the second try at a higher than normal dilution to bring out the blacks quickly?

This was never an issue when I was shooting 35mm but now I do mainly 4x5 and MF so am blessed with much better negs.

I wonder if selenium toning my negs would give me the same results with out all the fuss with two developer trays. Has anyone compared the results?


ps. thanks for you help so far.
