I have a very old picture that is stuck to this picture frame. I can not make a copy of it and can't risk getting the picture ruined. The picture is too long to fit in the freezer and the blow drier technique doesn't work. What can we do?

This really aids in stopping silver from tarnishing , ,my mother wrapped her silver tea service with plastic wrap I do it with jewelry etc. ... The oxygen can't gat at it as easily to tarnish.

I wrapped my silver pieces with plastic wrap and had lines and marks on the silver that would not polish out. I would put acid-free tissue paper around the items first, then use the plastic wrap. Keep the plastic off the metal. I have used Silvercloth with better results. You can buy it by the yard to wrap whatever you need.

The scrap-booking stores sell this product, or something very close to it that will remove items from glass, in one piece.

If you don't find it you might try putting it in the freezer. I read on here not long ago that would unstick the picture from glass. I haven't tried it, but assume it works.

In the freezer it doesnt work! Far better to scan through the glass and if water mark shows on scanned image use restoration software

Do not use something abrasive like steel wool or an SOS pad, this can scratch some glass

Buy a flat razor. Spray some water or Windex on the surface and scrape off the sticky residue with the flat razor

If you want to save the photograph, the best thing to do is go to a photo lab and see if it can be done safely.

Simply put it in plain warm water and gently use a finger to rub and massage it and it will release itself with no damage. Don't force it. Shake it off and blot dry with clean cloth, no lint type. Lay between two pieces of wax paper and weight it down so it dries flat.
