My mum had all her photos in these albums. I think mine she made for my 18th may be in one of these albums. Off to retreive the photos now, thanks for reminding me x


I managed to scan all mine & my moms photos & slides, so not only can they be touched up but also so my siblings can have a copy of the ones from their childhood & to share with old friends on facebook. Hopefully I can keep updating them to whatever medium is current so generations in the future can not only look at the originals but use copies themselves.

Thanks for the tips, I've removed mine from those albums. I did find dental floss slid behind the photo helped to remove them.


I scanned mine in still on the page - pulled back the layer of film over the top, and scanned with high resolution. My scanner is one of those which separates each image, but on the odd occasion where it thought two photos were one, I just cropped them to separate them. Doing it this way saved risking bending or tearing the originals. I now have them all on my computer, and backed up twice! The originals are left in the albums - might sound a bit odd, but the damage has already been done, and the albums themselves have a certain nostalgic charm, especially the bad taste orange and brown flowery ones from the 70s!


I went through all my mums albums a bit back and retouched them and saved them all. Took forever.
