AbstractAn image-forming apparatus of a type which has an exposing device for forming latent images on a photosensitive medium, and a developing device for developing the latent images into a visible images. The photosensitive medium is supplied in the form of a web from a supply roll, along a feed path which extends through the exposing and developing devices. A shearing device is provided between the exposing and developing devices, to cut the web into cut sheets each of which has a predetermined length including an image-wise exposed length. After each cut sheet is parted from the web, the web is fed back until its leading cut end reaches the developing device, so that each portion of the web following the cut sheet can be used.
