Kodak Rapid Selenium is used with warm-tone papers to produce several cold brown hues.

Selenium toner can also be used to extend print life without changing the image tone on black-and-white paper as well as being used for archival processing.

The toner should be  diluted 1:20 for print protection. Dilute 1:20 or 1:40 to increase shadow contrast and maximum density with a minimum tone change.

          I use Kodak rapid selenium toner to add tonality and contrast to all my B&W prints. Kodak rapid selenium toner works fast and effective, with even tones across the entire print.

                Makes little to no difference if toning Ilford RC VC paper. I have not tried it on any other type of papers so my review is limited to very little use and first time toning experience.

                  I have been using EK Rapid Selenium for over 30 years. It deepens the low values, and protects my prints from any noxious fumes which could damage them.

                    The instructions are easy to understand. The product is easy to use. I am satisfied with the results. My prints look great, though I was not prepared for the difference papers make. I toned prints made on two different brands of glossy multi-grade RC paper, expecting the results to be identical. The difference in response to the toner by the two papers is minimal, but I didn't have the experience to expect any difference at all. I did not try the product on film, so I cannot comment on that usage.

                      Comments about Kodak Toner for Black & White Print - Rapid Selenium:

                      I've been using this toner for 20 years as an archival toner (very dilute) mixed 5 oz in a gallon of water, or gallon of perma wash if you want to save a step. At this ratio it ever so slightly changes print tone from a neutral green to a neutral. As an archival treatment it is easy to use and quite economical. I'm worried Kodak will not be producing it for long as it is no longer found in most camera stores.

                              Using this for toning Salt prints and VanDyke prints on watercolor paper. It works very nicely for those types of photos.

                                  If you want to be a serious black and white photographer, selenium toning is mandatory for black and white prints to achieve optimal archival results and contrast. There is no better selenium toner than this Kodak product. I just hope Kodak does not withdraw this product from the market. Please make sure you are in properly ventilated room before you use this product.
