Colour drydown?

  1. Is the a drydown factor to consider when doing RA-4 colour prints in trays?
     
  2. Except for Unicolor and other Type B papers discontinued 40 years ago, you need to dry the print. Type A papers always needed drying.
    I have a $15 hair dryer for drying all prints for evaluation. A proper light box is helpful. After you have what you think looks good, walk around the house with it and examine under tungsten, fluorescent,window light, and take it outside. Watch it change.
     
  3. I second the hair dryer. Blacks look blue until dry, and that affects pretty much everything you see.
     
  4. they also tend to dry up, as in lighter--just a hair.
