RE: Potentially stupid pt/pd question


Check that your developer has some excess of oxalic acid. I usually have some undissolved oxalic acid at the bottom of my bottle. Perhaps chcking pH would be the best way of doing it. I have had my developer for years now. It gets replenished after every printing session. Never found a reason to go to one shot development.
