You could try some photo/film cleaner, which you can get at a photo shop. It will work on some inks, use a cotton swab moistened with a little of the cleaner. Try it on a corner of the photo first, then try it on the ink. Rub very gently. I worked in photo labs for over 14 years and used this trick often. (04/16/2009)

I would try a junk photo with a similar finish, and use hand sanitizer. (04/22/2009)
