My photos print out way darker than the monitor shows this happens with two different printers...I need tips on how to adjust it. NOT a computer person ;)

Hi this could be your printer aswell, your printer could be printing the colours in darker then it should, or if it is this Screen , then your screen is probably set too bright then it should making everything lighter and brighter

My printer prints pictures that are too dark.

I have always found that printers print darker than what you see on screen. This is most likely due to the fact that we set the screens to suit our preferences rather than down to a problem with the printer (and I've used several different makes). Your photo software should be able to correct this by making the photo look brighter on screen but printing it correctly.

Can print paper but photos have green tint

If you refilled the ink cartridges, this can happen. Kodak uses pigment based inks, the others use dye based inks. Also, make sure your printer is set for normal photo printing, rather than special effects.

Black cardstock

There is no white ink in the printer. White needs to come from the paper.
The inks in your printer can only make your paper DARKER, and you can't get any darker than black.
