Sticky problem

Please help with a sticky photo album problem.

I have been scanning thousands of old family pictures and have a problem coming up. I have about 40 pictures in an old album from the early 70's. It is the old kind with sticky pages with plastic covering the page. Many pictures came out quickly but this last group is stuck tight. Any suggestions as to how to get the pictures off the pages without tearing them?

I'd say cut the offending pages out and scan them whole, or carefully cut out each picture and scan it. Afterwards you can either stick the cut-out pictures in a new album or just have them reprinted. Better to wreck your old album than your old pictures.

That is a good idea. I can't believe it did not occur to me as the album is useless anyway.
