    Re: Is it possible to pre wash photo paper?

    1,5x or 2x your standard development times would be a good starting point, yep.

    Re: Is it possible to pre wash photo paper?

    Dilute your developer a bit more than usual (I used 1+19 instead of my usual 1+9), and rub, rub, rub! Gently of course, and evenly. You may need to develop a bit longer with this method. After a few...

    Re: Is it possible to pre wash photo paper?

    If you're worried about contamination, use small quantities of one-shot paper developer and apply with a fresh sponge. The sponge method worked for me when I made 100x150cm prints and couldn't find...
