How to take Copies of framed photos 

If possible take the photo out of the frame and carefully remove any glass 

Use a good quality camera or smartphone with the flash disabled from above, taking care to avoid any overhead lighting.

Ensure the corners of the image are in frame and remain as square as possible, if a reflection is present moving the camera further away and orienting the image in line with a corner often helps.

Image Repair 

Wherever possible, minor damage, unwanted artefacts and reflections will be removed from photos during our image processing.
