Loading negatives and slides

You can load 35 mm slides and negatives in the Slide and Negative Film holder of the All-in-One.

Loading negatives

  1. Raise the lid, remove the lid backing, and then remove the Slide and Negative Film holder. Set the lid backing aside, where it will not get damaged or dirty.

  3. Slide the negative film into the center of the holder so that the front of the image faces away from you and appears backward.
