Can others edit my Photos
Photos OK to edit
Hello. I have a problem with the printing of BW film photos. Often (1 photo from 10) has a almost unnoticeable stain. But after the toning it is so not good-looking.

Ususally I printed the photos on Ilford Multingrade paper, with Thetenal Eukobrom developer and Tetenal Superfix. I take all, as it wrote in instruction. After that I toned it in brown toner. It is the composition:

1. 2% acetous solution.

2. The Bleach:
- Water - 600 ml
- Potassium ferricyanide (K[SUB]3[/SUB][Fe(CN)[SUB]6[/SUB]]) - 50 g
- Potassium bromide (KBr) crystalline - 10 g
- Soda ash (Na[SUB]2[/SUB]CO[SUB]3[/SUB]) - 20 g
- Water - add to 1 litre

2. The Painter:
- Water - 600 ml
- Thiourea (CS(NH[SUB]2[/SUB])[SUB]2[/SUB]) - 5 g
- Potassium bromide (KBr) - 40 g
- Water - add to 1 litre

3. - Cold Water - 150 ml
- Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) - 15g
- Pour out this solution to the Painter.

Please, tell me, what is it? And what I take not correct?
