Positive B+W Paper?greenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread
Hello, does anyone know if B+W "positive" paper is available to make a print from a B+W slide.
Thanks in advance. Michael Haas.

Several options here. First, have an internegative made. I don't like this because the copy is never as good as the original. Second, have a cibachrome print made. If you aren't set up to do color, you have to pay someone else to do it and it can get spendy (the lab I use for color work charges $15 for an 8x10 cibachrome). Also using color material for a black and white print never gives the same look to the image.
Third option, and the one I use, is to reverse process black and white paper. The process is basically the same as producing black and white slides. You develope the first image, bleach it away, re- expose the remaining silver and develope again to give a poitive image. Get the RIT PhotoFAQ 15.07 for detailed instructions instead of me typing them in here.
One side benifit of reverse processing paper is that you get those black borders to your print that everyone is raving about these days.
