Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Very dark photos

My printer produces very dark photos when printing from PC or laptop' s stored photos. The image is hardly recognisable. A friend of mine has the same problem but can overcome it by printing directly from SD card. Unfortunately my photos are no longer on SD card but stored on my PC/laptop and that's when the problem occurs. Any suggestions please? By the way, I do not have a little monitor on my printer.

I have same problem, but it wasnt always like this. The first year I had the printer it was fine. We didnt use it for a while and now all images are very dark. The only thing that has changed is all the other photo management software that was installed with new cameras and accessories. I removed all the "Film Factory" , "Corel Photo Manager 6", and ancillary software, reinstalled the R300 drivers, and still getting dark images. I also played around with the printer settings regarding paper type, color management, and gamma with little to no effect.

On a Microsoft operating system, press PRTSC (Print Screen).
Then go to Wordpad and pick "Edit" menu and Paste the image into the current document. You can then save the document.

If you want this is in a format for Photo Gallery, use Paint, under Accessories to paste the image into and you can then save it in an image format that will be recognised by photo gallery.

I'm sure you haven't used all printers. Anyway, are you printing color images such as pictures, etc. If so try using a glossy paper. The colors and images are much more true colors on glossy paper, and it don't **** up your ink.

I would like to print some color pictures in black & white but I cant get it to do it. Any ideas


The black ink produces dark images while color ink produces multicoloered images. Once pictures that appear in color on the computers word documents are dispensed for printing, the color ink makes possible requests. It is impossible to request black charaters from colored ink on the printer.

Dear friend, your Black Ink Cartridge is Empty thats why your printer is using the Colour Cartridge to produce the Black Colour. This is the reason you are having Dark Reddish Brown colour instead of Black.

Printing dark tshirt transfers - can't override the flipped image


Hello I think I can help you. I Would not use T shirt transfer when you make up your print I would select poster print or any other form that does not automatically reverse the image. The reason your software is designed to do this is on the regular transfer paper your laying the image down on the shirt, so for it to come out right it has to be reversed. With the dark T shirt transfer paper your peeling off the backing and putting the image face up on the T Shirt.

I'm getting really confused with the resolution stuff


The C4000 is a 4 megapixel camera and can produce photos that should produce very nice 8 x 10 photos. 11 x 14 prints may be pushing it a bit. Your cameras should be set for 2048 x 1536 and the .jpg compression should be set to "Super High". Better yet, that camera can produce TIFF format. For photos you plan to print, use the TIFF format. The other half of this process is the printer. Most inkjet printers have a number of settings. Make sure that it is set for photo paper and be sure to use glossy photo paper. If you can print a 8 x 10 print in less than a minute, your printer is not set right. If it seems like it is taking forever, it is set right. .................... Using Photoshop Elements 2: Open your photo into Elements. Click Image, Resize, Image Size Remove the checkmark from "Resample Image" Change resolution to 300. Notice that the width height is about 5 x 7 inches. So if you print that photo at 300 dpi (dots per inch), you will get an outstanding 5 x 7 print. Most inkjet printers produce their very best outputs at 300 dpi. At 200 dpi, the image is still quite good. When you get below 150, you will start to see changes in quality. Now set the Resolution to 200 dpi and notice that the output size has changed to about 8 x 10 inches. Now check to see how it will look on paper. click OK. Click File, Print Preview You can verify that the photo fits on the paper and that the paper is correct (horizontal/vertical). Now print the photo. The next window that opens should let you get to your printer properties and you can verify that you have the printer set for it best settings and that paper is set to photo paper.
