    Hi can I expose a presensitized PCB to sunlight instead of UV lights? If yes, for how long? :)

    Depends on the UV content of the sun / where you are etc.

    Just do a test strip on a board - take a board and a black piece of paper, expose for 1 minute, move the paper an cm or so exposing more board, wait another minute and repeat for maybe 20-30 minutes - you can then develop your board and see where you get the sharpest results.
