No, I've never noticed that. If anything, just the opposite: I've always thought that yellow had a broader range because the lighter-colored pigment in the emulsion tended to block light less than blue and red. But I admit I've never bothered to test that assumption.

  Just curious if folks doing full color gum find that yellow prints with a shorter scale—fewer steps on a Stouffer?
