How do I correct the converging verticals, the enlarger head tilts as does the carrier but only left/right


I assume that I need to use a 6x6 carrier cropped


Other comments re my second image appreciated

You should try to look at the enlarger manual about correcting verticals. The Durst M605 version may be in the FADU manuals section. Itís procedure should be similar to your own enlarger. I tend to do it by simply lifting the easel, whilst viewing the projected image. You can lift an edge, or corner, and stick something under it once youíve got the correct position. Keep an eye on the image edges to make sure they are still within the paper. This procedure is easier to follow once you try it.

The proper technique is more complicated, but raising the easel works. Just be aware that the overall image shape changes to a figure with sloping sides. This is fine as long as the image still covers the whole of the paper. Also, keep an eye on focus. You can raise quite a bit without losing sharpness, but there is a limit beyond which only part of your print will be in focus.
