    Undeveloped film exposed 1 year ago

    I have a few rolls of 120 that were exposed 6 months to a year ago and never developed (shame on me!). Are there any adjustments to normal processing suggested in a circumstance like this?
    Thanks!

    Color or B/W? If B/W I've developed film as old (exposed) no issues. If color, well someone who is into color should answer that one, but I suspect it would be fine as well if not kept in extreme environments.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    No.

    Years ago I was speaking to the owner of a color film processing lab. People would come back complaining about the color balance of their prints. When asked they would admit that the film was a year or more old. The joke in the trade was there was the image of a Christmas tree at both ends of the roll.

    What are the films? Based on a thread here on APUG there may be a problem with Ilford PanF after as little as 6 months and more likely after 12 months but other Ilford films and TMax which I
    have processed after as much as 8-12 months post exposure I haven't seen any issues when developing as if I had exposed them just a few weeks back

    I just processed a roll of TMax 100 that sat in my Kiev since 1992 (!) came out no worse than my usual efforts
