Does anyone know which is the best blue filter to use to help improve the colour of faded prints.
Many thanks.

Of course it depends on the level of fade and the film stock, but as a general rule, a good cyan filter, for others a cyan filter which leans towards the greenish side of color.

By most importantly, a GLASS cyan filter as, those plstic filters you see about, limit the amount of light from you're projector, but a good glass filter is much better, light wise. They can be rather pricey, at times.
