TMAX 100 Maximum Time to Develop

Does anyone know how long I can leave exposed, unprocessed TMAX 100 lying around before the image quality starts to degrade?

G'day mate

Your Q is a bit loose with specifics here .... under what conditions is the film "lying around" and so on

However, back in the 70s Kodak processed some 120 roll films found in an Antarctic research base, images over 75yrs old and they printed them up as 12 foot wide posters spread across exhibition halls around the world

Several years should not be a problem.  If refrigerated it should last indefinitely.  Be sure to put the cassette back in the can.  Color film is a different issue.  It begins shifting color toward blue after just a few weeks.

decades… don't remember much!

Light is free… capturing it is not!
