There is no THE way to archival results. For those who
process in the usual way, develop-stop-fix, the use of
two fixers is best.

The wash prerequisite for archival results is a fixer
very little loaded with silver. So, a first fixer is used
to an established maximum silver content then a second
'clean' fixer used to bring the paper's silver load down
to a very low level. Best chemical milage is achieved.
The second fix which is very little loaded with silver
may be moved to first fix.

I use a single very dilute fix as a one shot so achieve
'archival' results with one disposable fix. Works well
with single tray processing. Dan
