    Hello!

    I'm new to APUG but not so much the world of film photography ;-)

    I just started a blog to help promote the use of film. I've written a couple of articles on Fuji's instant films. If you have some time check out these posts.

    Great idea for drying the prints. What do you do with the negatives? The problem I find with the negatives is that there's the developing residue (pinkish color stuff) towards the edge of the negative, which stays wet for quite some time. I either need to bring around a napkin with me to wipe it off or find some way to store (let dry) multiples without touching each other.

    I just stick them in a Moleskin. No muss, no fuss. The Moleskin I use is the type that folds out like an accordion.

    Aaron,

    I just rip off the excess paper and developer residue that's on the negative and stick that inside the box to dry as well. Once it's dry (5-10 minutes) I move them closer to each other to make more room for other prints & negatives.

    I was talking about the prints not the negatives to be clear.
