If you wouldnt mind, could you keep an eye on the photo you tested the chemical on for a week or so and then report back as to the condition-such as fading, cracking, continued softness of the paper and anything else you notice? Thanks much---Tom

If the photo was from 1974 it could be a resin-coated paper. The RC paper doesn't absorb fluids as easily as non-RC papers, so you might not be that lucky with an older photo.

Tom, I'll definitely keep an eye on the photo. If I don't report back in a week (and if you remember), remind me.

Ed, it does seem that there's some sort of coating on the photo paper. Perhaps that's why I felt OK trying it (plus the fact that the photo I tried it on didn't mean much to me.) To tell you the truth, I just can't stand the thought of using it on any of my grandparents' photos.

Lightbulb For your ad...

If you still do not have room for all 3 photos in your ad, you could state under the before picture that "This is the image AFTER the tape residue was removed from the original" You could also state that removal of the tape and it's residue was done BEFORE you accepted the job of restoration.

Paul, I was able to get all three photos in the ad (as you saw in the Business Challenge), but your idea might come in handy in the future. I'll keep it in mind. Thanks.

Tom, You forgot to remind me! I just looked at the photo again and both the photo and the plastic lamination appear to be in the same condition as they were right after I applied the un-du (almost a month ago.)
