Storing Photos

I know that there is some sort of technique where you can store more than one photo in a frame behind other photos and the stored photos wont' stick to each other. For some reason I think you put wax paper between the photos? Is this correct? I don't want to ruin any of my photos but only have so many frames (and space). Thanks!

I've actually never thought of that but yeah sounds like it should work. its the same technique used in photo albums with the wax paper between each page in order for the photos not to stick to eachother... so i think you should go ahead and do that! Good luck and have fun! Just make sure u keep those photos, i know i've been enjoying my parents old photos so many times and im hoping one day my kids/grandkids will too...

Thanks for the response. Do you happen to know if there was a certain direction (like a good side or bad side) of wax paper that they used in the albums? I really have never done anything similar to this before and am somewhat clueless and VERY scared of messing it up irreparably.

Warning! I was wrong! DO NOT put your photos in between wax paper. You need to use acid-free paper that you can get at an art store. The wax can met onto your photos ruining them.
