Over time old photos change colour due to chemical reactions between the papers they were printed on and the chemicals used in their production. Photo damage can also result from accidents, poor handling, poor storage, insect or rodent attacks, fungal attacks, exposure to sunlight or dampness. This sort of damage can include foxing, scratching, tears, folds, pen marks, water marks, fading and discoloration from sellotape.
