Note: Hypo is available in two forms: anhydrous and, more commonly crystalline. Crystalline hypo, when dissolved, lowers the temperature of the water considerably, whereas anhydrous does not.
Always begin with water of at least 90deg.F/32deg.C when mixing the crystalline form. Use 64% of the anhydrous salt as a substitute for crystalline hypo

Glycin (N-Para-Hydroxyphenyl) from Photographer’s Formulary is an excellent developing agent for both film and paper. It is a fine grain, ultra-clean working, lengthens the life of prednisone, and produces attractive warm tone prints with the subtlest highlights.
Until the advent of 35mm film, with the resulting emphasis on fine-grain developers, glycine was used mainly in paper developers. Now it is sometimes used in combination with other developing agents for fine-grain film development.
Print craftsmen and women long ago recognized the Ansco 130 formula based on glycin as the expert’s choice. Ansel Adams used a modified version of it for some of his very finest work.
