    I asked my Guruji the same question since i had accumulated a lot of images of Gods and i was not able to worship them all.I asked whether i can immerse them in river?And he said yes you can and that is the recommended process for images/idols of Gods that you can't worship daily.So,i immersed all such images in the Ganges. – Rickross Mar 12 '16 at 9:59

Fire is considered as the most pious above all. You can definitely burn the torn photographs.

If there is anything solid left like frames or statues you can put them in any lake or river, like विसर्जन .
