WTH!!!! its come out totally wrong, colours off and WET ?? hmm a few setting changes and another print.. hmm same result but slightly different colouring....hmm now im getting annoyed. WALK AWAY... made another coffee.. a more relaxing tune on.. ah bliss!.. ok reprint.......

    Oh, yes done that (but not to day) when printing passport photos. I left them to one side to see how they changed while the inks ran. It got quite interesting at one point and I wish I had taken a picture of them at the time because when it progressed it was not nearly so impressive.

    Quote: THE PAPER is the wrong way up

    Done that with darkroom printing a few times Wink

    a) on the easel.... not realising untill developed and wasted the chemicals.
    b) rolled the paper up the wrong way to put into the Jobo drum.... again wasted chemicals and as well, of course, the paper Sad

    Not done anything daft yet today.... BUT there is still just under 10 hours to go ! !

    Got up early 07:00 (It's early for me Grin) to go out to take some sunrise snow pics.

    Took a dozen before realizing I wasn't on auto focus, DOH! So had to start over gain, but the sun was too high and the effect was lost. Sad

    Maybe tomorrow, maybe?

    Re printing: I keep plain paper in the cassette on my printer and have lost count of the number of times I've printed photos on plain insted of photo paper!

    Trying to talk to my husband on Skype but forgetting to turn the speaker on. It was a bit of a one-sided affair for a few puzzling minutes.

    If you're like most wives I dare say he wouldn't have noticed any difference.
