    regarding costco, you might go to the customer service desk and ask if you need a membership to use the photo lab. you do not need a membership to use the pharmacy or the tire dept or the hearing aid center or to see the eye dr so it might be the same for the photo lab.

    Toss it down into the basement or out in the shed, it's not like it goes bad or anything, about the only place you don't want to store it, is within a metre of a heat source or under water.... As to the OP, just buy yourself a developing reel, a couple of graduates and a processing kit. You can always process film at home....

    From what I understand, processing color film isn't that easy. Neither is printing it. I already develop and print B&W.
    f/22 and be there.

    I'm with Sirius Glass. I get my 35mm done while I shop at Sam's Club. Not all locations do it though. If you upload digital files as well and get big prints Costco seems to have a better operation. You can get printer profiles at drycreek photo for a lot of Costco locations. I think Sam's charges $1.50 for developing only. Prints are a reasonable price.

    If you can develop B&W, you can develop colour negative film. With B&W you have 4 chemicals, developer, stop, fix, rinse, with some wash steps in between. With colour you have 4 chemicals developer, bleach, fix, rinse, with some wash steps in between. The only hard part with colour, is the temperature, I found out years ago that the process is no where near as temperature sensitive as many people think. The critical temperature step is the developer and that comes first. If you use a plastic tank and it's already at temperature, it's not going to drop drastically in the few minutes development takes. My Darkroom in the old days ran about 64℉ in the winter time, all you do is take a tank of water at the proper temperature, and stick a thermometer in it, see how far it drops during the developing step, say 4 degrees. Bump the temperature by 2 degrees, you should find your starting 2 degrees hot, and end up 2 degrees cold. That's actually good enough. You can buy a colour processing kit, and follow the manufacturers directions. I've never processed slide film, but I understand it's just as easy.

    Printing is a little harder, but not much. The only issue is you need to colour balance. easiest with a colour head, but not impossible without.
