Some enlargers have dials on the front that are labeled yellow, cyan and magenta. These enlargers are made to print both black and white and color photos. To print in colors you use the dials to perfect the colors of your print. Let say that you took a picture and the colors look to be a bit off. In the light you would hold up a color filter to the image and decide which filter makes the color look closest to what you want the final image to look like. Then taking the information on the card you go back into the dark room and adjust the dials on the enlarger according to the card that was used. If you were looking through a green filter then you would lower the number on the magenta dial.
Printing in black and white on an enlarger with these dials is a little different. Since there are no colors in the black and white paper these dials have a different function. They are used to adjust the contrast of an image. If you turn the light on in the enlarger without paper under it and turn the dials you will notice that the magenta will make the light darker. When you print with the yellow and cyan dials at 0 and magenta at around 10-20 this will add contrast the image. You can always develop all your negatives without touching any of these dials, but if you can master them then your images will have a little less flat than those with little to no contrast.
Often "grayscale" is achieved by mixing some of your colors (CYM) to form composite black and gray - not necessarily just black from your black cartridge. Often there is some yellow used beneath the black -- so if you are getting a red or blue tint, it could mean something as simple as being low on yellow ink.
photo r300 printer is printing coulor photos ok but when i use adobe 7 i turn my pictures into black and white and then i hilight some coulor into the photos good prints but now the prints have a green hue to them ?
If you refilled the ink cartridges, this can happen. Kodak uses pigment based inks, the others use dye based inks. Also, make sure your printer is set for normal photo printing, rather than special effects.
I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.
The paper you print on is not relevant.
What happens is the green tint is the actual printer delivering all the colours to give a 'composite' black.
On shiny photo paper this is emphasized where as on plain paper the colour is absorbed and shows as intended.
So what can you do?
Move away from black and go for a tint such as sepia.
