Thank you so much for this article. It helped me get on the path of processing negs myself. Everything is great but I want to note one thing: when you mention Photo-Flo, you say to rinse it from the film afterward. I did this the first time and it canceled out the Photo-Flo step, and water beaded up on the film and left spots. I read more posts and realized that Photo-Flo should be added to the final rinse, and it allows the water to sheet off the film. This worked much better. I think rinsing it off will render the Photo-Flo step useless.
Thanks again for the great article!
