    Horizontal or Vertical?

    How do you store your negatives, horizontally or vertically?

    I store mine in those page-protector-like things in a zippered notebook. I usually stand the notebook up, so the negatives would be sort of
    [] [] [] [] [] []
    [] [] [] [] [] []
    [] [] [] [] [] []

    Must be horizontal?

    Good Afternoon, Diane,

    Normally, they're all stored in binders sitting vertically.

    I store mine horizontally so that the emulsion won't sag to the bottom of the film base over time.

    This sounds like a digital question.

    Some flat, some up, some diagonal, some facing north, some not at all.

    Mine are stored in the haphazard position.

    I was just wondering as I was rearranging my WorkBoxes filled with pages of negatives and slides and recalled reading somewhere about how people stored their stuff vertically, which in this case is bad as I don't have that kind of space, they work a lot better horizontally.

    I store all mine in slide pages, in hanging file folders.

    I think the idea of them vertically is so you don't put a great heap on top of each other. Mine are in folders which stand vertically in a cupboard.
