Prints from colour labs will usually have density and colour correction information printed on the back of them. Remember reading it somewhere a while ago what each of them mean. Kodak and Fuji have their own unique representations also. Searching on google and scratching my head at the same time to recall now. :p Can anyone shed any light on this? Thanx a million! :)

"Noritsu specific status strings: An example status string is as follows:
8121 11 N N N N NN AS+02 Zxxx/xxx

[1] [2] [3] [4] [5]

Field [1] can contain any of a number of pieces of information, including date, order number, etc. None of this directly pertains to the printing mode.
Field [2] has the print color channel information. Values other than a single N, with no "+" or "-" sign, indicate that a print channel was adjusted. Have your files reprinted without corrections.
Field [3] should always NN, "---", or simply not be present for digital media. It relates to the film scanner module settings.
Field [4] will often not be present. That is ideal no automatic adjustments were applied. If it does appear, the most common codes are "AS" and "AC" which stand for Automatic Saturation and Contrast. If these, or any other code is present with a "+XX" value, ask for the target to be reprinted with all Media Corrections and DSA (Digital Scan Adjustment)/Judgment Image Correction settings disabled.
Field [5] contains cropping status and may or may not be present. Its value does not matter"

Thanx Zerstorer! Do u happen to know what each individual print channel of these Ns or non-Ns stand for?
