    Depends on what kind of dirt they are, if it's illegal expect them to call the cops. If it's softcore most places would probably print them, and a spare set for themselves.

    If you are really ugly, they will probably burn them... If you aren't get a chick to develop em and she'll keep double prints for herself :p

    try a private photo lab not costco or some big place.
    a small place will give you privacy, might cost more but its privacy you want right?

    I think rahvin is right. Except he left out the part where the spare set end up on the internet.

    Nah, it's just that I'm going to Acapulco in a few weeks. I'm expecting people to get a little crazy and want to snap a few pics. Just needed to know if I should get a poloroid camera or stick with the disposable types.

    I would just go for the Polaroid. That way, you can avoid the funny looks when you go to pick up your pictures :p

    but take a 35mm camera with you too.

    Well, I would take a digital, but I don't want to have to worry about losing it or getting it stolen.

    The looks you'd get for bringing a digital camera to Acapulco while people are "getting a little crazy" would be a lot stranger than the ones you'd get at the photo place :)

    Actually, I've wondered about this too-I'd like to hit a mardi gras celebration next year.

    Mardi Gras is a good time to have a camera with you. :)

    I'll just get the pics developed in Mexico. That's probably the best idea.

    Film processing places don't give a rat's ass about your photos.
    Take them to a place that's got unattended customer pickup.
    Don't take them all at once if you want to be paranoid.
    Baby oil does wonders for the camera.

    To answer you question. NO, it's a federal offence to develop nude pictures and have to be turned in. I know this because I used to work in a photo developing center. That although was 4 years ago and things may have changed.

    Actually, two years ago a certain set of high school cheerleaders, while drink and wasted, posed completely nude with nothing but a belt over their nipples. The photo guys that developed them put them on the Net and they ended up getting prosecuted. But because of the publicity generated the cheerleaders were completely ruined until they graduated...

    ...just be careful

    It is not a federal offense to develop nude pics...

    Processing depends on the locality.

    Some places have signs up stating they will not develope them, and if they see some being developed, they'll not give them to you, but throw them away.

    I don't know about the negs...
