    I have had a photo do that and I know nothing was spilled on mine. I wondered if the heat didn't do something to the emulsion on the photograph. I will be interested to know what can be done if it ever happens to me again. In my case I allready damaged the picture before I realized it was stuck.

    I had to remove some that had been around for 40 to 50 years and age was the problem. I think I was told to put them in a freezer, and after they were frozen, slide dental floss between the pic and the glass.

    You could start the dental floss on one corner and if it doesn't work, stop before the pic is totally ruined.

    I hope you can separate them from the glass.

    yippee! I have the same problem with a couple of my photos, too. I will try the freezer and dental 'cure' and let you know if it works or not. I CAN get duplicates made but don't want to if I don't have to, since the neg's are not mine and I have to ask for them. I will put them in the feezer tomorrow am and get them good and cold!

    I used UNDO on a picture and worked like a charm - just be careful.

    You are right! I forgot about that product. I keep wanting to get it but put itr back because it is a bit costly. I didn't think to use it on glass. Forget the freezer, the Undo should be the solution we need...no pun intended! Thanks for the reminder!

    I would be lost without Undo. Besides removing pictures and stickers, I use it to clean my photos on a layout when I'm done. I'd love to find it in a gallon container so I could soak my adhesive dispenser. LOL

    I understood that Undoo only worked on self adhesives. The show I saw, the demonstrator said it would not work on regular glues. That is the reason I did not recommend it. So I'l be interested to learn if it works. Be sure and let us know. Thanks.
