a 1972 color Poloroid

Stupid me cut the picture edges to put it in my card case. It lasted until 1993 when I got caught in a London Rain storm. It's of my babies 2 and 4 (1972 remember) The image film with the image on it is wrinkled terribly. Is it at all reparable. I've not had the heart to throw it away nor try to wet it and stretch it out.

This is my entire knowledge of photography. I have a digital fuji I could send you to show if it would help.

Hi Pat

Welcome to Retouch Pro.

It would be easier to help if we could see the image.

Scan the picture and post it here

If you need any help posting an image then this link should help

An alternative If it's too much to repair, paint it! I did this painting of my son from a 1970's Polaroid because it has always been one of my favorite photos of him and I wanted to save that moment.
