  1. Re: New Computer - Photoshop CS6 - install Silver Efex Pro2?

    If the old computer has a hard drive "going", that drive can be duplicated if it's not too far gone. Then you're back in business.

  2. Re: Material used to block light - between the fil holder and the back of the camera

    I've used "telescope flocking" adhesive pieces. Basically super black velour on one side, tacky glue on the other side.

    Because your unsharp mask button is checked, I'd bet money it has simply lost it's settings. Perhaps you'd saved them and can recall them?

    Re: D-76; Mixing Small Batch?

    I'm not a fan of mixing powder every time I want to develop film, simply because it's going to get chemical powder about your darkroom faster than if you did it once per gallon for example. I'm sure...

    Mix up the gallon, store in 1L bottles filled to the top with no room for air. The full bottles of stock will last a very long time, while only one bottle is open and aging.
