    Ink i have just replaced, however it seems to be doing the same thing still even on high quality setting.

    Set up the printer and all my prints are coming out very light. I've made numerous changes and tried to print again with same results. The test pattern even appears very light to me.

I found that when printing directly from Window Photo Viewer it was too light - try printing from something like Photoshop though and it prints in full-colour!!

First thing, are your printer ink cartridges empty?  If it is, or is very close to it, this may affect the quality of your photos.
If quantity of ink is not your problem, did you go under printer properties, and in options/settings---check the slow speed, or maximum quality of your photo.  You can even check what type of paper you are using so the printer can sdjust more specifically.

Only printing 1/2 the image of the selected photo, I have tried changing the printer cartridge but still only prints 1/2 the selected image, any ideas why this is happening?


I am not familiar with that particular printer, but it could be as simple as making sure you have the entire picture selected..but it sounds more like the cartridge is either clogged or there is a setting that needs changed...try aligning the cartridge(s) and printing a test page. (that part is usually under a maintenance or troubleshooting type section) if that turns out fine, then there may be a setting thats off...look at your print settings...you may have a separate section just for printing photos...even if you don't, look at your page setup.. look specifically at the margin settings...that might be where the problem lies..you can always play with the margin settings- i would recommend saving them under a custom setting if you want to keep them, instead of default though...that way you have your regular settings for general printing... and do a "print preview"...that might be a good idea anyway, so you wont have to waste ink and paper trying to get your stuff to turn out how you want it (plus that will show you if margins are set right)...for that, there should be a checkmark box you can select to always do print previews...
also, look to see if you have a selection or checkmark box that says "fit to page" or where you can select how many copies you can print per page..this can be used for everyday printing, as well as for photos...
you may even see a spot where you can select the size of photo to print...usually you can pick to print "wallet size or 4x6, ete." and how many to print on a single page...maybe even multiple sizes per page...these are several options for you to look at...hope it helps :)

Hello

Large photos are printed differently than regular photos.

Photos that have large resolutions or are best when printed in larger sizes are sometimes printed on multiple pages. Printing the photo on two or more pages requires setting up the printing options so that the printer recognizes how the photo should print and which areas to stop printing on each page.

Open the photo in iphoto

Select "File" and scroll down the list until reaching "Print". Click on "Print" and wait for the printing set up options. Some programs require selecting "Set up" or "Print set up" instead of "Print." Make sure the set up options are brought up according to the program.

Select "Time Imageable Table" or similar options in the program. If there is not an option with a similar title, look over the various titles and any pictures that come with the titles and see if the pictures show multiple pages or only a single page. Click on the options that allow printing one photo on multiple pages.

Select overlap options, which give margins so that connecting the pages forms the picture. Overlap around 1/2 inch or so.

Print the photo. The number of pages should match the set up options selected under the imageable table.

When using canon pro 9000 with photoshop on a MAC Snow Leopard computer, I cannot print borderless pictures. How can I fix this problem


Preserve your memories forever with borderless printed photographs--while saving money and time by printing from the comfort of your own home. Some printers do not have the option of printing borderless prints, so make sure your printer supports borderless printing before beginning this project.

  • Download your digital photo to your computer from a digital cameramag-glass_10x10.gif, email or the Internet. Save the photo to your hard drive to a folder that you can find later such as "Pictures."
  • Step 2Open your digital photo in a photo-viewing software. Click "Print" from your menu. Go to your printer properties to change your printer's "Page Setup." Access "Properties" through the "Preferences" or "Options" link in your "Print" dialog box. Many software programs have a default margin or border for photos; to print borderless photos, you'll have to remove the default margin.

    Wont print out accurate color when printing a Greyscale photo


    Hi, I recommend doing a nozzle check first to ensure all the colours are printing fine.
    Within the advanced option of the printer driver you have an option to select greyscale, it might be worth enabling this feature.
    If you are using glossy media the problem might be down to the ink reaction with the glossy resin as this can cause casting or bronzing. To check this try printing on matt paper.
    If you are printing from Photoshop check your colour matching settings, the easiest way to do this without messing to much is try printing from another application, I would recommend Epson's own, Easy Photo Print.

    Color from monitor to printer isn't the same.


    Go to your printer properties and play around with the options you are given. You may find an option for paper quality: photo paper, print quality in which you can choose from the options from economical to best printing to photo printing. This may solve the highlights and shadows if your printer is set to print regular business copies.

    Lines on a photo when printed


    The print quality usually depends on the program you're using to print them on your pc.
    Your camera only ever sends photos to your printer, so the best settings are already selected by the camera and it's built-in photo program.
    Your printer doesn't 'know' whether your printing a document or a photo, so the settings for each program on your computer are basic (known as default settings), and need to be changed by you to get the best from your printer
    Find the settings that let you alter the printers options (in Word, it's FILE \ PRINT \ PROPERTIES), and make sure the printer output is set to maximum quality, and that photo paper is selected as the paper type.
    Some options such as 'maximum quality' only appear when you've chosen 'photo paper', and some printers (such as the ip4300) have seperate options for gloss or matte paper, so go through all of them until you see what you need.

    Hope that helps :)

    HP Photosmart D7360-Won't print from photo tray


    You have to push in the photo tray~. Push until you hear it click...then it will print from the print tray and in turn, you will be able to print photos unto your glossy photo paper instead of the letter size paper.
