window trim fix ??


So i have been procrastinating about painting my window trim for a while now, and its starting to get to me a little more every day. The newer windows where installed the summer of 07 (yes I know, its been a while) and ever since the install, the old paint that I layed down when I moved in has cracked b/c of the removal of the old windows, I hope some of the pictures give you an idea of the cracking I am talking about. So the question is, is how should I go about repairing this cracking paint?









sorry for the pics off of the cell phone, the wife carries our camera with her at all times

Seems like these windows need more insulation around the jams. Use a scraper and remove the paint that is loose. Sand to a feathered edge. Prime. paint
