My best suggestion on this (I restore and copy photographs
professionally) is to buy a roll of DRAFTING
tape.  It looks like masking tape but it easily removable and will not
harm the photos (short term = several years).  You can buy this at your
local art supply store.  It's also best to write on the tape before
attaching it to the photos so you don't cause indentation and use pencil
so that it's unlikely to transfer to the face of another photo.

On another topic.  Can anyone tell me how to tear watercolor paper to
simulate a deckle edge??
