Hio

pain in the backside. had 4 F/A-18 photos printed from photobox that i snapped on thursday. got frames for them today and when i put them in, close the back up with the metal clasps and on the front it looks like the photograph is sticking to the glass. not sure how else to discribe it, looks like blotchy sticky marks on it. i think the glass and photograph are as clean as i can get them and it only happens when it comes in to contact with the glass.... so... any tips or suggestions on how to not let this happen. hard to get it in the frame without letting the photograph touch the glass at some point..

maybe some sort of cleaning solution to wipe the photo or the glass or something? not even really sure what is causing the problem so ive no idea how to fix it.

anyone else come across this??

tips and hints welcome

Gary

Yes I know what you mean Gary.

It's the same effect as putting the tax sticker in your car windscreen. Not sure how to get round it though. Wont the back push the photo onto the glass when it is clasped in?

Tim.



Obviously missing something....

yea it does im afraid. ive done a short solution of not putting the claps too tight but i didnt like the look of it really... instead of the clasps i tryed putting one of the backboards on with masking tape around the edge of the frame but the photo was still sticking to the glass..

That is why photos are matted. Buy a larger frame and a nice single or double mat.

I'm not referring to the finish of the photo.. Yeah sure ..I'm talking about placing the image in a mat, and then in a frame. The mat provides separation from the glass, and preserves the image.

boarder or 'mount the photos' would have made more sense to me  Yeah sure and if thats not what your twittering on about then ive no idea what this mat thing is.

there is no room to mount all the photos and keep the wall design i want anyway.  Yeah sure

just stuck with sticky photos i guess.

Have this problem too, not found away around it. Tried cleaning glass etc.

I went with Lustre finish instead on the photo, and it works a charm. The glass gives a glossy feel to it anyway.



what seems to be the officer, problem?

Come, come, Gary, suspenders, elevators, rubbers ,etc; lets not be too divided by our common language.
Personally I would never frame a photo without a mount (mat) partly because of the problem you have encountered and partly because the finished appearance is so much better, but that's down to personal preference.

My interest lies in the future as I am going to spend the rest of my life there!

"Mounting" a photo is a process where the image is adhered to a piece of foam core board and placed on the wall with out a frame.

Obviously not. I was only trying to help you understand the principle involved.....so much for that idea.

I'll bet it looks wonderful.

it does look a lot better, thats what all my other photographs are like. for these 5 F18s i have, 4 of mine and 1 ati. i bought frames a few inches larger either side than the photo and used some black card as a (surf) boarder around the edge of the pictures to make it look a bit better, of course that just pushes the photo more on to the glass. i do have a few propper mounts for more conventional sized photos. however for the spacing i have on this wall. the amount i wanted on it and keep the actual photos a deacent size just nae possible im afraid....  Sad

finished re decorateing my room, luckily the other wall is totally blank so ill be able to be more selective and get photos printed to fit the frames and mounts rather than the other way around.

So what would be so difficult about cutting the centre out of this black card and putting it in front of photo.

Don't see the difficulty here!

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

well true it is F-18s and its hard to make them look ugly.  Wink

it looks less 'sticky' today as well, only tiny spots but im picky. might just cure its self once they get settled i dont know.

tried that before and made a right hash of it, home made corners dont look very good. doesn't look nice without the mitered edges of a proper mount either.

Quoting JeffM (Reply 10):

yeah didn't do a very good job but life goes on.

anyway i'll get nice mounts and frames for the other wall

if anyone wants a look at some of the offending appendages after all that.

I always purchase a larger frame than required and then make up a border out of professional mounting board.

I always find prints look much nicer with a border as opposed to the print going right to the edges of the frame.

Mounting board is thick enough to keep the print away from the galss.
