    Default Sticky photo

    Just found that one of my photos got stuck to the glass of the photo frame. Any methods or tips to seperate them, without damaging the photo itself?

    Warming up as in heating the photo with a hair dryer? I was thinking of using some steam from the kettle, but not sure if it works.

    Agree that glossy pictures tend to "stick", reason why I'd try to avoid using it even tho' the color contrast is better.

    I was wondering if the water form the steam might affect the colours and stuff?

    Put it into the freezer overnight. Put the glass in such a way that the photo can fall away from it once it is "freeze dried" (e.g. lean the glass against something with the photo side down).

    Remember to keep the photo inside a sealed plastic bag immediately to prevent water condensation damage.
