Gevaert Warm Tone Developer (GD-67)

Variation of tone may be obtained by changing the bromide concentration, time of development and temperature of the developer. When these factors are controlled, the tone of the prints will be consistant through the long run. The longer the exposure the shorter the development, the warmer the tone.
