Mounting your slides for viewing can be time consuming. When I’m working through a roll of uncut film, I’ll preview the images by cross-eye viewing. The detail isn’t great, but this can give me an idea of which images are worth investing the time required for a precision mount.

Sometimes, however, I want to see the image in a viewer before making my decision. In these cases, I follow a tip from Paul Talbot. I reach for one of my protective sleeves, slip my cut & reversed film chips in, and drop it into my viewer. The images aren’t precisely aligned, but they are often close enough. This technique also lets me try different mount apertures by holding them in front of the image.
