These small, clear photo corners are perfect for adhering valuable old photos to a scrapbook without compromising them at all. The photos never touch any adhesive, but are held securely. The corners are very small, and clear, which makes them less conspicuous, and lets the photo speak rather than the photo corners. They are archival safe, and acid and lignin free which makes me feel good about using them for precious old photographs.
The package says they can also be altered with alcohol markers, which I haven't tried, but that could be a fun way to decorate.
You can never have too many photo corners. I like the clear ones. I use them with my original pictures in layouts. I like to use my original pictures in my layouts. If I need to I can take it out for whatever reason. Then put it back in my layout. Without worry about ruining the pictures if it was glue down or has adhesive to hold in place. These or the black ones are great to have when wanting to use your old original family pictures. To put in your layouts. At least they are in a album not store away in a box.

I am creating combination photo albums/scrapbooks with 35 years of photos as it would be impossible to scrapbook all of the photos. While I am using the really great We R Memorykeepers Page Protectors photo sleeves for the photos, the older photos are too small to stay securely in the 4x6 windows and I have to use cardstock to mount them onto. These photo corners are perfect to hold them on the cardstock.
I'm a proponent of photo corners being used to mount original photos onto layouts. Because these are clear they can be used for any photo. If you want a bigger or colorful corner choose another style or make your own to place over these. I always have a box of clear photo on hand.

Jills comment is perfect! I am a genealogist and alot of the time someone would see a picture on a LO that they would like a copy of! Here you go....you are able to take it off, copy and put it right back. So...family history pages I use clear photo corners all of the time! Put your life in a book!
These photo corners work great for special photos that I may want to take out of my scrapbook from time to time. I like the clear ones because they don't detract from the photo details. They are easy to apply and stick well. Just what I was looking for!
