You betcha, as they say up north! I'll tell ya what I have been doing (just
in case their one coats need an extra coat and the paper has, in fact,
contracted): I get a plate with some water on it and a sponge, and I sponge
the back of the (usually the 16x20 size) print so it looks glossy with a bit
of water all the way over, wait for about 5 minutes for the moisture to
relax the paper, and then over a light box I have taped my neg in place by
eyeball registration. The paper will nicely relax into the neg, as long as
you are watching for that perfect moment of exact size.
