By means of photoemission and X-ray absorption spectroscopy, we have studied the electronic structure of (Ni,Zn,Fe,Ti)$$_{3}$$O$$_{4}$$ thin films, which exhibits a cluster glass behavior with a spin-freezing temperature $$T_f$$ of $$sim 230$$ K and photo-induced magnetization (PIM) below $$T_f$$. The Ni and Zn ions were found to be in the divalent states. Most of the Fe and Ti ions in the thin films were trivalent (Fe$$^{3+}$$) and tetravalent (Ti$$^{4+}$$), respectively. While Ti doping did not affect the valence states of the Ni and Zn ions, a small amount of Fe$$^{2+}$$ ions increased with Ti concentration, consistent with the proposed charge-transfer mechanism of PIM.
