I have two problems. First, I am looking to adjust the copies that are printed. They are aligned too far down on the page and cuts off the bottom of the page on copies. Also, The images I print, copy, and received faxed images print out with little black spots all over them. Is that the developer usually?

This problem is referred to as color to color alignment. Most color laser systems have a rough adjustment by means of a screw somewhere and a fine adjustment that is done in diagnostic mode as part of a setup routine. Try the latter first by locating your manual and looking through the troubleshooting guide which should explain how to force the machine to do an automatic color alignment. Your manual should be available online from your manufacturer's web site if you can't locate it. If this doesn't work you will need to take it in for servicing unless you are handy with tools and can find a service guide for your model.
Check Page Preview before printing your file and see if the application you are using recognizes the entire page and does not cut-off the edges.
You can try to print Fit to Page or Borderless and see if that helps.
For your blurred copies, Please follow the steps below to fix your problem:
From the printer operator panel, press the Setup button.
Go to Maintenance.
Select Align Cartridges. Your printer will then print a page to align your cartridges.
After the test page is printed, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you. Should this resolves your problem, your rating will be greatly appreciated.
Perform the following steps to align the ink cartridges:
Disconnect the power cord from the unit, wait five seconds, and then plug it back in. This will reinitialize the unit.
Print another alignment test page. If the Press Enter to align message is not currently on the front panel display, complete the following steps to print an alignment page:
Press Setup or Menu on the front panel (depending on the model).
Press the right arrow button (>) until Maintenance or Tools is displayed, and then press Enter or OK (depending on the model).
Press the right arrow button (>) until Align Print Cartridges is displayed, and then press Enter or OK (depending on the model).
To determine if the automatic alignment is functioning correctly, look into the output tray as the alignment page is printing; a blue light should be visible periodically on the page as the cartridges move back and forth. If this light is not visible, the product will not be able to align the cartridges and will require service. Service the product.
If the blue light is visible and the alignment pages are printing correctly, but the alignment pages still fails, there still may be a hardware problem with the unit.
If there are no other printing problems and you wish to continue, use the information in the Bypassing the ink cartridge alignment section below to bypass the alignment. The information from last successful alignment will be used.
If the message keeps reappearing or other print quality problems occur, service the product.
Models with a semi-automatic print cartridge alignment
Some HP products have a semi-automatic alignment process. These models do not have an additional sensor and will print two pages for the alignment process instead of one. The alignment page must be placed on the scanner glass or into the automatic document feeder (HP Officejet V series) and scanned.
Disconnect the power cord, wait five seconds, and then plug it in. This reinitializes the product and forces the scanner to calibrate again.
Examine the scanner glass and white scan backing. Clean the scanner glass and scan backing if they are not clean. To clean the scanner glass and scan backing, use a soft cloth towel slightly dampened with clean water.
With the product turned on, open the scanner cover and check the bulb assembly. If the scanner bulb is not lit, the product must be serviced.
Verify that the alignment page is placed correctly on the scanner glass or in the ADF (if the product has one). Place the printed side down.
5. Make a copy of the alignment page. The unit will make a copy even if the alignment message is displayed. Compare the copy to the original. If vertical lines appear in the copy, check to see if the scanner assembly requires cleaning. If cleaning the scanner assembly does not correct the problem, service the product.
6. Use the information in the Bypassing the ink cartridge alignment section below to bypass the alignment. Operate the HP All-in-One to determine if there are other problems. The unit should be serviced if other error messages or problems occur or if alignment problems occur every time the ink cartridges are changed.
To bypass the ink cartridge alignment:Press and hold the Setup button, and then press Options (or Copy Options ).

This sounds like the print head alignment is not stabilized and may indicate you need a new print head ($$$). Try looking in the Service Manual. A copy of the Canon i860 Service Manual is downloadable at:
