I've seen these mentioned several times here. I did a Google search and found some, but I couldn't tell from the descriptions how they are different from post-bound or even D-Ring albums. What do the magnets do? Hold your pages in place? Hold the album shut? Thanks for excusing my ignorance

Magnetic albums are the old style photo albums where you press your photo down on the page (there's already adhesive on the page) and its covered with a clear poly sheet that folds over to cover the photo. Make sense? There are not really any magnets.

I just pulled all of my mothers and some of my childhood pictures out of a "magnetic album" because the acid in the adhesive was ruining the photos. Just thought I would put that out there because some of the pictures are almost ruined beyond repair because of these albums.

Oh, so there aren't any actual magnets involved? That makes so much more sense! I couldn't figure out why magnets would ruin photos or how you'd keep all the magnets from sticking to each other instead of the photos!
