Barry Thornton's Exactol Lux Film Developer is a unique developer of special interest to artists and photographers wishing to produce monochrome fine prints. It is from the same stable as DiXactol Ultra, and has the same distinguishing characteristics. Clean working, it produces the fullest palette of richly graduated tones, especially in the holding of translucent and delicately drawn highlights. It is particularly resistant to 'blocking' up at high exposure levels. At the same time, shadow detail and separation are nursed up to unusual levels. Printing is likely to need significantly less burning-in, in landscape skies, for instance, and graduation is likely to be markedly superior in these burned-in areas. Discriminating workers appreciating the fine separation of tones should find this a fulfilling developer.
