To see a photograph in your dream indicates that there is a relationship that needs your attention. You are not looking deep enough into the problem. Alternatively, the dream means that you are clinging on to the past or to some false hope. Consider who or what is on the photo. The image may be trying to take you back to a particular moment in time.
To dream that you are altering a photo suggests that you are putting out a false image, or something is not what it seems to be.
To dream that you rip up a photo indicates that you are letting go of the past and living for the future.
