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.
