Question about Canon PIXMA IP5200 InkJet Photo Printer
I have a Canon Pixma ip5200 printer. I first noticed a problem with printing some wedding photos, when all the skin tones seemed 'lobsterish' - pinker than they appeared on the screen ( I'm using Paintshop, but have also tried an assortment of other software to solve this problem ). I never did solve the problem, and then recently, by chance, I had to print some black-and-white pictures - and I noticed that they too have a noticeable pinkish tint to them. I've selected 'grayscale printing' in the Print Properties dialogue box but it appears to make no difference whatsoever. I've also selected 'Greyscale' on the 'Options' tab of the print dialogue box, but that also seems to have no discernible effect. The image in question was scanned from a monochrome photograph using greyscale scanning, and appears on the screen to have no apparent pinkish ( or any other ) tint to it ( as of course you'd expect that it wouldn't ). I don't know if it would make a difference, but I've tried the printer test pattern and it appears fine. I'm all out of ideas and I'd welcome any suggestions.
