How do I remove ink from a photo?

I don't think you can. The solvent in the ink will have probably etched into the photo. If the photo is of sentimental value and you do not have the negative, and it is not too badly damaged, then you could try scanning it at a high resolution. Then you might be able to edit out the damaged area.

I worked in a photo lab for nine years. We cleaned ink off with a cotton ball and a small amount of rubbing alcohol. Gently rub the ink off. The alcohol dries quickly and does not soak the picture.

Thank you very much Raspet!

Alcohol and cotton balls really work.

I saved a beautiful picture from a friend that his little kid damaged.
