Anonymous, there's a whole science of "color management" that you've invoked. First, what you're seeing is truly caused by lack of "calibration" in any stage of your workflow.
Your camera takes pictures, and whatever colors it sees are what it sees.
Your monitor shows you colors, but there's no standard calibration involved.
Your printer prints colors, but it too isn't calibrated to any standard.\
Assume for a minute that your monitor is set up to be a little too dark. You edit the pictures, and lighten them up so they look ok on screen. Now, when you print the picture, it's too light.
I've had similar issues, and have ended up purchasing a monitor calibration tool (Color Munki Smile) to calibrate my monitor, software "Profile Prism" to calibrate my printer, and now the prints I get look almost exactly like what I see on screen...
take a photograph of the spoons, depending on the camera quality, and the ability of the camera to take macro photographs, ( most of the modern cameras do have) Then take the photo into some sort of photo editing program, and enlarge the file/photo up to A4 at 300 dpi and print out
The problem is probably the pixel size of the picture. Pictures with 5 or 6 megapixels look fine on 4 x 6 but they get blurry when enlarged. You need a minimum of 10 megapixels for an 8 x 10 print. Cameras that are able to take 10 megapixel or higher photos normally don't do this by default. They are set to save more photos on the memory card of the camera and so save the photographs as lower quality snaps. These are fine for looking at on a computer but if you want to print at 8 x 10 you need to set your camera to take the highest quality photo.
Set up a picture with basic squares of colour using a graphics program such as Powerpoint. Print this picture. Does the printed picture look like the picture on the screen. If not, uninstall the printer, reboot, and re-install it. Try again - still no good? You need to get a technician to look at your printer.
If this basic colour check works OK, take a photograph of the printed picture and load it into the computer. Compare it with the original on the screen. The same? No - it's a camera problem - Yes? - OK now print the camera version. Any sign of this dimming? Yes - it's a printer problem - get a technician, as before. No? - I'm baffled why you think you have a problem?
You can only print with date and by date when you are using a memory card, but when you're printing directly from a camera you should have an option or a setting on the camera to print the date information. Hope this help...
