PURPOSE: To execute printing having a special trimming frame by recording the form of the trimming frame in a specified code before printing process and detecting the code to automatically print in the case of printing.
CONSTITUTION: The codes C 1 and C 2 are recorded between frames F 1 WF 3 of a negative film 1. In the case of printing the frame F 1 , the code C 1 instructs that the outside of the range of ellipse like short dashes line of the frame F 1 is trimmed so as to obtain an enlarged print P 1 and masking is executed outside the range. In order to add the code C 1 , it is photographed with a light emission diode in the state of incorporating a film in a camera or punch holes are pierced on the film after photographing. In the case of processing the film where the code C 1 is recorded in an automatic printing machine, the code C 1 is detected and the printing P 1 having the specified trimming frame is executed. Therefore, the print having a special printing frame can be automatically obtained since the code instructing special printing frame is set.
