Re: Lighting for Platinum/palladium Alt proc Work Area

That's surely a sound advice. On the other hand, all the lightboxes I saw
were using translucent white plexiglass which should be pretty opaque to
UV light... (If I were a lightbox designer, I would definitely add
something into the plastic to filter UV light - since especially color
film is very vulnerable to it and films usually stay for a considerably
long time on the lightbox...)
