MessageA bit off in recent personal experience, but one thing is that you will never be able to correct out the color to perfection with standard color head coupler process.

The one thing that may be of help, that in my experience I found color correction with HUGE differences actually is necessary. If your neutral head reads 45-45-47 you might try 120-89-60 for example. Or, well . . . I hope you get the idea.

  Does anyone know where I can find out information about printing from cross-processed slide film? I have shot on Fuji Sensia film, and have really really green negs. I've been trying to print from them with absolutely no success whatsoever and I'm sooooooooooooo sick of it - have used about 1/2 pack of colour paper! Even sandwiching with blank colour film isn't really helping. I seem to get red-biassed prints with no density in the shadows. I want to make my own prints so I can scan them and make diginegs for gum, so I guess this is alt-related enough??? Someone out there must know something - I have looked on the web and nobody talks about printing, only exposing and processing. Books are less than helpful and everyone I know who has cross-processed this film has given up trying to print it....but the LAB did o.k. with it!

  Meanwhile, I've also made 7 (yes, 7) large silver emulsion prints so at least I've had SOME fun.....

  Thanks in advance
  Kate
