You might be able to adjust the exposure in the photo gallery so that the photos aren't printed so pale with that application.
But here's the scoop on easy print:
"Exif Print Support: When a digital photo is taken, up to 40 different camera settings (like flash and zoom) and scene conditions (like landscape or panorama) are stored with the image as Exif Print tags. Canon's Easy-PhotoPrint analyzes these tags to determine the best image processing settings. Easy-PhotoPrint then automatically sets the optimum printer driver settings to make sure your photo prints come out stunning, every time."
So that's the reason those photos are printing better.
Then see also this comment: "Can Easy-PhotoPrint work with non-Exif Print images? Yes. Easy-PhotoPrint will work with all JPEG files, regardless of the source of the image. However, only images that were captured by an Exif Print capable camera will be processed using the Exif Print information"

I'm assuming your last question refers to transferring images from Windows live photo gallery to easy print. You should be able to download the photos to a folder on your computer. Save them there.
Then open the Easy Photo Print software and, I'm guessing here, use the open command on the File menu, or whatever usually opens a picture file, and simply browse to the location where you have saved the photos, and open them from within easy photo to print them. If that doesn't seem to work, you may have to import the photo into an easy photo gallery or album of some kind first, then print from there. There would be an import command available, usually from the File menu.
But according the the link here, you can definitely print other photos that have been saved as jpeg files. You will probably find more info about how to do so in the Easy Share help files.
You may or may not be interested, but a great free image viewer I've been using lately is Fastone Image Viewer, available here. It uses a format very similar to the windows explorer, which helps make image file management a little simpler. You'd have to experiment with it to see how well it prints, compared to canon's own software. But with a little experimentation, you'll learn how to adjust the various settings to take advantage of your printer's capacity.
Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

My Canon MP210 never prints photos correctly! The colors come out like the right color but very incorrectly. Basically, the photos all have very severe color management problems. APparently the printer has...

Have you heard of Wysywig? What you see is what you get?

Well on color pictures on you monitor you get wysinwyg what you see is not what you get. Monitors are backlit, so colors are much more vibrant than what a printer can generally deliver. Explore the printing properties of your priinter as there are adjustments that can be made to enable better quality and true to color prints. The paper you use to print out your pics is also important in producing color that is close to original.

When you view your pics on screen try adjusting the color hue to the point it becomes overcolored and try a few experimental prints to see what level of the slide is needed to be used to achieve a brighter more vibrant picture. I would also like to say that the Canon 210 , whilst it is a very good printer, is at the cheaper end of the photo printer scale.

Talk to your ink and paper supplier, they can often show you or recommmend printers that are much higher and more accurate in delivering brighter and true to color photos.

I changed the black and colour print cartridges in my MP210 and the colour printing is all the wrong colours

Reinstall your printer driver software and do a test print before. If the test print prints fine then you probably have an issue on your main motherboard.

Error B8e7b69c

I have had this issue happen to me when trying to print a photo from my windows picture program and from the window photo gallery program on Vista. I believe the problem is a compatibility issue with the windows Vista photo programs. I was able to print very well using another photo program. So i suggest printing from another photo program. My camera came with one that is pretty basic and good at fine tuning the pictures. I used the Canon zoombrower ex program and it printed all my pictures well. I think most digital cameras come with some type of photo editing program. You should try printing from it instead widows photo folders or windows photo gallery. Using my camera's photo software solved my issue well. try this out to see if it works for you. good luck
