Basic features Of AnotherLAB:
- When set up, the
program represents a complete computer model of
the dry-side of your lab. All enlargers, optics,
films, paper types, and paper batches are

through Print Styles.

- similar to style-sheets in professional word
processors - make it very easy to build your own
print model library, acting as models for any new
print. All previous prints may be stored in
a print database for later retrieval and
printing. The Prints may be linked to
Business clients and Image Indexes to speed up
and simplify the access.

act as a self-learning Expert System: AnotherLAB
calculates the mean exposure for any papertype,
for any printstyle. With increasing print numbers
this guarantees an ever-increasing first-time
