    The wife bought a nice framed photo at the farmers market this summer and the backing on the photo had warped cardboard. It peeled off with little effort but the photo stock itself is a little uneven. Can you put it on a cutting board with a t-shirt and a cool iron and fix this kind of thing or am I hosed?

    They do make presses for fiber based photographs. Any frame shop worth it's salt should have one and do it for a nominal fee.

    This where professional frames are invaluable.

    Find one and you will be happy.
