  • photos stuck together

    Hi -
    I have just registered. I need help.
    I have several vintage family photos - some about 100 years old. They became moist and they are now stuck together.
    Can I separate them myself, or should I take them to a person who specializes in photo restoration?
    I have read that they can be soaked in warm water and that they will come apart. I am afraid of ruining them completely.
    thanks for you help/suggestions,

    Hmmm...old, fragile (and no doubt irreplacable) photos... definitely get an expert to look at them. If the photos are important to you, the risk of damaging them is just not worth it.

      I think I would call my local art museum. Most large museums have resident art restoration experts. All of them that I have talked to are more than willing to give you free expert advice.

        you might check out this thread: pay particular attention to the one that talks about photos taken before about 1930.
