Our process is intended to bundle negatives per roll, and folders can be identified with between 25 to 45 negatives. The DX Code information contains the frame number, and our process orders these files by frame number prior to our renaming process at the end of the job (files are labelled sequentially, image001.jpg, image002.jpg, etc).

Film submitted with DX Code information may be sorted & renamed based on original frame number within the roll.

Organization & Preparation of 35mm Negative Strips or 35mm Negative Rolls

35mm Negatives are typically stored & organized in full rolls, cut strips in binder sheets, or cut strips in developed sleeves.

We aim to maintain all order & organization within your project - 35mm negatives are typically bundled by envelope or sheet, with advanced file labelling options available. By default, each developed sleeve will be a folder, named as labelled or sequentially.

Our standard process reads the DX Code information for frame ordering, which, if applicable, will order your frames as shot on your roll.

We will accept orders in any format, so there is no need to remove from sheets or pages. We will return items with the same organization that we received.

APS Negatives (Kodak’s Advantixx Photo System) contain negatives in a cartridge - we remove the negatives from the cartridge (which is perfectly safe), scan the roll, then label as per the roll number printed on the cartridge. The roll is then rewound individually & returned separate from the cartridge.
