How to Develop your film-

In the dark, you remove the film from your camera. You unwind it from reel until you rip the tape off. You load the film onto a metal or a plastic film reel. Spin the film on the reel until it is fully loaded. Put the loaded reel in the film tank and cover it. Film should be processed between 65 and 75 degrees. Pour the developer into the open part of the pour spout and cover it. Turn it upside down for one minute and then turn it again for another. When it is upright tap it several times against your work surface. Pour running water into the spout for one minute to stop the development. Put the fixing in it takes about 5-10 minutes. Remove the tank cover and let the film sit in cold running water for five minutes. Pour a tankful of Hypo Eliminator and agitate for two minutes. Wash it again one last time. Pull the film out of the tank and hang the film to dry. Leave it to dry for an hour or two and then cut the film in the space between the images.
