Photo Stuck to Glass of Frame - HELP!

Posted by bwyjewel (My Page) on

I recently purchased new picture frames. When I went to transfer the photos from the old frames, part of the photo was stuck to the glass of the frame. It's stuck from grime build up.

Can anyone help as to the best way to remove the photo without it ripping. Can I just soak the old photo with the glass in water?

Thank you!

I would put it in the freezer for a while and see if it turns loose. If not, try the opposite. Hold the glass over some steam and see if it turns loose.

Good Luck

did you have any luck with these suggestions? My Mom has the same problem with one photo and I'd like to help her.
