View Full Version : taping undersized film for larger holders?

I have seen a couple of references to this--for example, taping two sheets of 8x10 film to fit an 8x20 holder.

Anyone ever done this? If so, how do you do it?

Do you tape the short edges together, then slide into the holder as if they were one sheet? Or tape them down to the holder, one at a time? Some other way?

Also, I presume the tape would have to go on the back of the film to avoid messing up the emulsion--right? or not?

I may want to try this, so any advice from someone with success doing this would be much appreciated!
