    I have 2 standing folding photo frame holders with 15 photos each which
    faded from sun coming in the living room. I am going to have to scan
    them and try to fix and print them out to get better color. Is there a
    plastic or glass sheet (8 X 11 1/2 in each) which would protect them?
    The skylights have a plastic tinted coating but that did not stop the
    suns rays from doing damage. Surely there is a suitable product. Any
    suggestions appreciated.

    Im sure frame shops can get UV absorbing-reducing glass. Some inkjet
    papers and ink combinations are now claiming 100 yr life, many older
    versions state 20 yr. Talk to a pro photo shop or developer, they can
    scan , restore, but might not give you long lasting inks and paper. If
    you had the negatives you might do better. If photos are to far gone
    convert to B&W. Read about inks from Epson Canon and HP.
