I think the real consensus, when an operator is doing their first 50 rolls, the occasional nudie, is a big deal, after they have been doing it for 20 years, and the number of rolls they have processed is 50,000 then they probably all look the same. Even fully automated systems will kick the problem images out for hand printing, and you can bet an operator is going to notice something in the say 10 images kicked out per day. I think the real question though, if your pictures contain illegal activity (like kiddie porn), then do you really want to risk that the lab guy is going to notice and turn your pictures and contact information over to the local constabulary.

Only on the screen . . . but still one would remain discreet. Of course, on a coffee break, one would lightly shake one’s head over a so-called artist.
