    Yes! I'm very sure is 5N and not 4N. The print is from StandardPhoto shop.

    Yes! I even notice that one of the clients shots has good depth of field but somehow they adjust till too bright and the blue skyline flush out, becomes white sky.

    IIRC, it is colour adjustment for CYMK at the photo lab.

    OK first of all its RGB corrections NOT CMYK.


    The 4 digits are Red Green Blue (or their opposites) and Density. I will get back with you later today on what those settings mean, its been so long since I printed film Ive forgotton. Theyre used to help the lab match that photo again if you ever bring it back for reprints. But yeah, Ill ask someone in film today when I go into work.
