I'm not sure that there is a problem here.  The correlation between print speed and print quality, 
especially on InkJet printers, is a negative one.  That is, the higher the quality setting, the lower 
the speed. So, if you're selecting the greatest quality for your print option you will suffer the 
lowest output speed.  This is because the printer is taking time to ensure that it prints each 
minute detail onto the page.
 
If you are looking to keep the quality optimal, one solution may be to select a different grade of 
photo paper (or perhaps one with a different coating [matte, semi, gloss]) and test to see if you 
can lower the quality setting on these higher-end paper types and still achieve your desired 
results.

To get what you want from your printing paper, you will have to consider what you like in a print, 
how you intend to use your prints, and what you are willing to pay to achieve this at home. 
Some things to think about include: paper thickness, color brilliance and resistance to fading. 



1. Paper Thickness
When it comes to paper thickness, paper that resembles the look and feel of traditional prints 
will be the best if you like to print a lot of photos and pass them around. Thick paper just feels 
right in your hands and will also stand up better to handling. However, if you are going to put 
the majority of your photos straight into an album, a thinner paper may work just as well for you.



2. Color Brilliance
To ensure the photo paper you purchase produces good color, you can purchase small sheaves 
of a short list of photo papers which you think will suit you. Next, print a series of colorful test 
photos on each to see which has the best color. If you can incorporate colorful photos that also 
have prominent straight lines and people in them, you will also be able to check the quality of 
sharpness and skin tones in the same test.



3. Resistance to Fading
Always try to check the resistance of the paper to fading. Simply take your batch of test photos 
and tape them to the window that gets the most sunlight throughout the day. Then, before you 
go in to pick up a batch of replacement paper, check to see which photos, if any, are showing 
signs of fading. Any paper that shows signs of fading in this short time frame should be avoided.


4. Changing Your Ink

It is also important to remember that any time you change ink for your printer, you may find 
yourself getting dramatically different results.

SOURCE: print quality stuck on fine

Did you check in the software? There should be a print quality option in your driver software.

My canon MX882 printer has become VERY slow at printing pictures. Almost undo able


This all comes down to file size of the picture and the quality you are printing in. Check your printer settings and see if you are printing in least, normal or best quality. Also look at the actual size in pixels of the picture you are printing.

Slow printing


Check that the default setting for print quality on your printer driver hasn't been set to "Fine".

In your Opertaing System, find your printer (in XP it's under Control Panel / Printers and Faxes) and select Properties. This should then bring up the settings for the driver.

Fine printing quality takes over double the time "Normal" quality takes so would considerably slow your printing.

What is the different of matrix printer to other printer like inkjet printer and laser printer?


Each of the three differ on the quality and the technical feature.The print quality of the matrix is the lowest and is used for general documentation/ billing.
the ink jet uses ink with high speed nozzle and has colour with good quality printing that it is used for domestic and office uses.
The Laser is the best in the class and has superior printing with higher technical feature for professional quality.

It takes a looong time for the printer to print just a few lines


What print quality are you using? Go to the print window, check properties. Under the features tab check print quality. If you are using anything above normal such as Best or Maximum DPI, more memory is necessary to print and will slow down printing. If you don't need high quality printing, change the setting.

Our printer is printing too slow more slow than before


Perhaps someone changed the print quality setting to a higher one, or chose a different media (paper) type in the printer preferences?
If you choose standard paper and standard quality (or something to that effect) does it speed up?
When you choose enhanced/photo quality and special photo paper, the printer will print up to 8 times slower, putting much more and much finer dots on the paper, resulting in indeed much higher print quality - but you don't always need that kind of quality, like when you print documents.

Prints slow


Check to see what quality you are printing in, all printers print slower in normal mode compared to fast or draft mode. When you go to print click on property and change the quality. This is normally a temporary fix to keep the settings you need to do the same thing inside the printers folder.
