FS#185 - Development / printing information

I capture the majority of photos on film, process it myself, print or scan it myself. A lot of people my do the same. I would like to see an option to note down the way I developed the film. IMO it would be best done in the following fashion:

have a table with development instructions (could have fields like: "id"?, "name", "developer", "dillution", "time", "agitation", "temperature", "notes"). The editing would be done in a similar way as for locations. This info would than be linked (through the id field?) as a technical informaion for the photo.

If there was the possibility to enter these information, I would not have to have a separate database/excel sheets noting this down.

Thanks a lot

I definately see the use of this, but if it were to be handled like locations, you'd have to have a unique "development" per selection. I realise there's probably a handful that you would use most often, but unique development types would expand the table rapidly.

so, you'd want something like:

create table "developers" (
identifier integer unique not null,
manufacturer integer references manufacturers(identifier),
model text not null

create table 'development' (
identifier integer unique not null,
name text not null,
developer integer references delvelopers(identifier),
dilution text, -- a percentage?
time timestamp, -- ie "5 minutes 3 seconds"
agitation text, -- ?? "yes/no/light/heavy" ?
temperature integer, -- eg 24C
notes text

I don't know what kind of data types you'd have for each of these fields.

Something like that, but
dilution text should be text field (it usually is something in the form "1:100", "1+1", "1+3", "1:1:100", ...)
time - could be the timestamp like that
agitation - definitely text, and sometimes a long one ("continuous agitation first 30sec, than one agitation every 2nd minute", "stand development",...)

There are only a handful ways used for development normally by one user - the ones he likes and gets good results with, so there would be on the order of tens of entries in the table.
