Why are my print photos fading?

Photographic print papers will fade and change colour over time. This fading or deterioration process can be accelerated due to improper storage materials or improper storage conditions like keeping your photos in a hot attic or damp basement or by hanging wall photos in direct sunlight.

Scanning prints into digital format preserves them for the next generation. If you still have your film negatives or slides then it is always best practice and higher quality to scan from your original film.
