    Ive taken alot of photos, but my problem is, i want to keep the nagtatives.

    I normally keep them in the box they came with, but soon ll hve to many and it wont fit on my shelf anymore.

    Is there any way of storing them, and being able to find them quickly by some kind of organisation? any ideas?

    You could put them into sleeve pages and keep them in a binder.

    I was thinking a small filing cabinet or one of those expand-files.

    yeah, but if you needed a pick, would you wanna go sifting through every negative? isnt there a way to include those lille cards you get that tell you what negatives are in the batch?

    You can easily mark the negative sleeves with date and place. It makes quick work of sorting through them. And these binders are sturdy, hold lots of negatives and store well in a bookcase or shelf. :D

    paint the ceiling of your room in phosphorescent paint and stick all your negatives on there with blu-tac... then... when you want to find a negative, just turn the light off and they'll all light up. :D bonza.

    or if you want to protect them all from fire.... use some strong thread and using all the sprocket holes at either edge of the film, stitch together and fashion a small jacket out of the negatives for a dog to wear 'cos dogs hardly ever get set on fire.

    well after you've made the jacket... a spare line of negatives with a hoop of thread at each end would make an ideal 'visor' StarTrek TNG style for the sci-fi loving dog....
