Developing, fixing and other chemicals for aerial work differ in no essential respect from those used in ordinary photography. Full discussions of these are to be found in numerous texts and articles. The aerial photographic problem is to select those most suited for the under-exposed flat negatives characteristic of photographs from the air. At the same time selection from among the chemicals of appropriate quality must be governed by considerations of the conditions surrounding work in aerial photographic laboratories. These laboratories, especially in war-time, are apt to be most primitive in their facilities.
