Set the default printer driver settings to print 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch) photos
Make sure 10 x 15 cm (4 x 6 inch) photo paper is loaded into the photo tray.
The Photo Tray light on the printer does not have to be lit when printing from a computer.

This is an older post, but it appeared to be unanswered. In iPhoto once a photo is selected, you hit "Print" at the bottom right. A preview screen with options comes up. Once the correct options there are chosen, you need to hit print again - but it does not print yet. Instead a second "Print" window opens. In the middle of this window there is an "iPhoto" button with arrow buttons on the right. The arrow buttons open a drop down menu. Choose "Paper/Paper Quality" from that menu, and it will give you a button for "Source." The arrow buttons on the right of the "Source" button allow you to choose "Photo Tray."
Once it's changed, you don't need to redo it each time you print an additional photo, since iPhoto reverts to "Last Used Settings." But as a shortcut for future sessions, you can save these settings using the "Preset" button located at the top of the second "Print" window (the window where the "iPhoto" button is located). I used "Photo Tray" in the description so it would be obvious, since I don't print pictures every day.
When printing from programs like that, usually the "BEST" option is selected for the print quality.. Try going into the preferences and choosing a lower quality.
If that doesn't help, for Photoshop, you can "save for web and devices", choose PNG and then save to desktop, and use another program to print the file. Or when in the print dialogue, make sure "printer manages colour management"
Not too sure about Iphoto print settings, but there may be something in there.
hi i am a certified Canon repair tech for this printer. the first problem is the paper you are using hp photo paper is specialty formulated to be used with there inks. every manufacture is the same if you want the proper looking photo and you are using a Canon printer you need to use Canon photo paper because the paper is formulated for their inks. hope this helps to clarify.
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.
