One question. When you change a developer to a developer with higher concentration of dichromate, does it affect highlight or shadow? That is also what I would like to confirm.

Thank you again.

Warmly,

p.s.: DR is a little bit beyond my capacity since I cannot measure my negatives yet... Is that something I can measure with step tablet?
Tsuyoshi,

My experience with dichromate in the developer is that it does affect the highlights first. You might want to print a step tablet with each of the different dichromate concentrations to get a feel for how the print contrast changes and the effect on the speed of the sensitiser. So yes it is something you can measure with a step tablet.
