The Recovery of Water-Damaged Traditional and Digital Prints

Every year I hear from Creative Memories Consultants and their customers who have lost photos in floods and other disasters. Disasters can happen to anyone. A Consumer Guide for the Recovery of Water-Damaged Traditional and Digital Prints, which was prepared by the Image Permanence Institute, provides general guidelines on how to best deal with water damage.
