PHOTO RESTORATION, PRESERVATION & ARCHIVING
RESTORATION AND FLATTENING OF A ROLLED UP PHOTOGRAPH
Restoration of a rolled up photograph or a document is one of the most challenging and difficult of all restoration tasks. Because simply trying to unroll a photograph may cause additional damage if not total of the item, first the photograph has to be carefully humidified in order to introduce moisture into the layers of the photo paper and make it pliable. Often the procedure has to be repeated many times and it can take weeks to carefully unroll a photograph inch by inch.
