I have a very small (wallet-sized) damaged photograph. It was in the shirt pocket, and one of my friends picked up the shirt by the area of the pocket, crumpling the picture a bit. I have tried ironing it and keeping it under the weight of a stack of books for several days. Now, the wrinkles are not very noticeable, but I would really like any possible advice on removing them completely. I have been offered digital restoration and it is possible to make new prints; however, the photograph itself was a gift and all reprints would not be as meaningful. Is it possible to completely remove the wrinkles or to cover the photograph with a transparent layer that would make them less visible?
Apologies, I did not attach the scan of the picture as the wrinkles are too minor to be seen at the scanning angle.
Please help; the photograph means a great deal to me. Any help is very much appreciated.
