AT LAST!!! Someone has taken the time to post a photograph of the correct loading of a film holder. The past threads often became confusing, with some photographer's descriptions of loading from the top, some from the right, and still others loading to hide the notches.

I am sure this picture will help many in the future. Well done, Sorin...

Sorin: Good job with the drawing. Someone should have done it sooner. Hope this makes it to the archives in an easily found spot.

Excellent work Sorin.Just one brief suggestion, with no criticism intended, for future reference.Try using the GIF format for this type of illustration, it's more efficient for drawings with only a few colours in them.I just reduced your drawing to a 16 colour GIF and resaved it. The GIF file was 9K as opposed to 12K for the JPEG. Also the GIF format doesn't give those frilly JPEG artefacts around outlines.
