Some years ago I tested dried-in-the-dark for 30 minutes strips vs.
dried-in-roomlight for 30 minute strips. They were essentially the same
except the dried in roomlight had more dichromate stain, quite a lot more,
come to think of it. Which come to think of it could be one reason why
some printers have more dichromate stain than others -- where they dry?
