    Well thats' a thought! If the subforum is expected to be for trolls and full of arguments and invective, then have at it...

    It may not be enough to point out to prospective buyers that your prints are made with traditional processes. The modern buying public is so well-informed about such matters that they frequently ask not only about choice of paper, paper grade, developer - they demand to know what enlarger was used, even which enlarger lens, easel, paper trays etc.

    Just yesterday someone at a very famous gallery asked me whether I used print tongs, or agitated by rocking the tray instead. I told him I rock the tray. Then he asked me if I wear gloves. What type of gloves... Nitrile ? What color... blue ?

    What a shame it's not like it was in the old days, when buyers only asked about shutter speed, focal length and aperture: now they demand to know the actual lens serial number !

    I've clinched hundreds of print sales - not just because I use all the right materials and equipment - but because I make my prints on the right day of the week ! That's right: I do all my printing on odd-numbered days. Posh galleries insist on knowing, or they won't even look at your work.

    Actually, if buyers were educated, they would actually ask those things. As it stands now, they want to know the type of scanner, type of ink, printer make, how many images are stitched together and did you take them all yourself, which Photoshop plugins you use, what stock image service do you use for your sky, moons and clouds, how much sharpening or other digital 'enhancements', file size, how much RAM you have, do you use RAID, type of digital cables used to connect it together, etc...
