    i don't know where can find this out, so i'll turn to you wonderful 12ozers for help, since there's such a wide assortment of experts that browse this board...
    i had a stack of pictures from my vacation last year, and i left them stacked in a pile on a table, and where i live, its really humid, and after a day, they're all stuck together just from sitting out. fuck, if i pull them apart as is, it'll destroy the pics....does anyone know a method to ease them apart? maybe light steam? i dunno, it was the best vacation i've ever had....i hope i didn't lose the negatives...
    :eek:

    i considered that, but wouldn't that dry it more, and thus solidifying the bond?

    that happend to me before.
    i left some flicks in my glove compartment and when i took them out they were stuck together. i didnt try anything special to get them apart, so they were pretty much ruined.

    id try a light steam, like you suggested. or maybe ask Lono to ease up on the humidity next time.

    good luck!

    steam, it should loosen them up.
    just be carefull. Lay them out, scatterd
    and let them air dry.

    yeah, i think you guys are right, steam seems proper. i was going to do it anyway, i just thought i'd see if anyone has actually done it before, or if there's a better way.

    thanks guys :ballcap:

    I agree. Soak them all in water.

    steam=water, therefore steaming them would yield the same result as soaking. when the photo becomes wet, they have a jelly-like consistency and soaking might cause it to blur. i could be wrong, but i know there's a lot of photgraphers on this board who have a clue...

    if you dry em they shouldn't blur...
    and steam is hot, which could be much more damaging than plain old water...
