Strip board (Veroboard) Layout Circuit to breadboard

How can I transfer the following circuit from veroboard to breadboard? I don't know much about veroboard as how it has internal connections. Can somebody help me in transfering this circuit to breadboard?

There are a lot of different types of veroboard. This one has all solder joints on a row connected. That would limit your board to maximum 10 nets, but it's common to cut rows in two or more separate parts.

Connections on a solderless breadboard are completely different; they have rows of 5 connections instead of the 14 here, and a couple of long rails for power.

Because of the difference in layout I wouldn't try to convert one into the other, but go back to the schematic and layout the breadboard from that. (You do have a schematic, don't you?) If a schematic is built up logically it may be easier to transform that into a breadboard layout than to start from what you now have.

    \$\begingroup\$ ...or you can try to extract the schematic from the veroboard \$\endgroup\$ – clabacchio Jun 14 '12 at 11:23
  • \$\begingroup\$ @clabacchio - Might work reasonably well here, all components are marked, but you can't see the orientation of the diodes, for instance. \$\endgroup\$ – stevenvh Jun 14 '12 at 11:29
  • \$\begingroup\$ heh right :) but the pins have different symbols, it may also be an indication \$\endgroup\$ – clabacchio Jun 14 '12 at 12:09

    \$\begingroup\$ @Steven - the schematic is here. \$\endgroup\$ – Oli Glaser Jun 14 '12 at 12:18
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Oli - Yeah, I just read your other comment. Thanks. \$\endgroup\$ – stevenvh Jun 14 '12 at 12:19
