A darkroom process database to keep notes of film developments, as well as print exposures and developments.
This program helps to keep track of the film development process used for each film. It keeps notably track of the developer used, development duration and temperature, as well as the agitation pattern applied.
The default identification of film is based on the day the roll was finished and the camera used. This way, unique film ID can systematically be produced. However, custom ID can be used.
Print exposure are recorded using either linear timing in seconds or f-stop numbers. An exposure entry also include a list of the burning and dodging applied. Complex multiple grade exposure can also be saved.
Prints made from a specific film or for a collection of prints, like a book or an exhibition, can easily be listed.
This program support a multitude of default setting to generate recording in a minimal amount of time. For instance, default paper, developer, toner and print size can be defined to speed up print recording.
Additionally, this program also interact with the Darkroom F-Stop Timer v2.0 and up. The combination of these two programs makes exposure and re-exposure of prints straightforward.
Finally, for advanced user, since the data are stored in a MySQL database, a SQL database editor can be used on any computer to do advanced manipulations and query.
