Pink spots TMax 400greenspun.com : LUSENET : B&W Photo - Film & Processing : One Thread
I found a roll of TMax 400 135 in my coat pocket that I exsopsed December 1998. When I developed it I found pink sections on the film and also on the edges. Any ideas what I did wrong? I used xtol 2-1 at 10:30 68 deg and used Kodak rapid fixer at 3 min. Aggitated 7 times every 30 sec during development and during the fix time. Washed 20 min.
Can I remove the pink now? Will this affect the printing? I use varable contrast paper.

It's probably insufficiently fixed. Re-fix (for, say 5-10 min), and re-wash.

Some of my film reels tend to grip the film too tightly, causing the chemistry not to make good contact, you can re fix the negs, tho i wouldn't take the chance of causing the negs to swell up or reticulate.
