Yes it can be confusing and more so with 5 bands.
Take R12 (top left next to C8) you read that one from left to right.
So,,, Brown (1), Black (0), Black (0), Yellow (4), Brown (1)
First 3 gives you 100 then Yellow is the multiplier which means you multiply 100 by 10,000,,,,or just add 4 zeros.
So R12 is 1Meg
Multipliers work thus;
5th band is Brown which =1 so it's a 1% tolerance.
If you read the bands backwards and it makes no sense then just read it the other way.
R1 (Top Center) might confuse you as the multiplier is Gold.
So grey, red and black reads 820 but the multiplier in this case is less than 1.
Gold means you multiply x .1 which gives you 82 Ohms,,,, or just take away one zero.
Hope it helps,,
