When I go to my picture gallery and select a photos to print (on my mp600 printer) the color of the photo is off, the flesh tone is a redish color. when printing off of my card in the printer the color is perfect. However, I have lots of photos saved on my HP. What do you suggest?
I found out that Windows Vista (this is what came with my HP laptop) is not compatible with my printer. So, I went to the Canon website and downloaded a driver, and my photos are very clear and of normal color:)

Have you heard of Wysywig? What you see is what you get?
Well on color pictures on you monitor you get wysinwyg what you see is not what you get. Monitors are backlit, so colors are much more vibrant than what a printer can generally deliver. Explore the printing properties of your priinter as there are adjustments that can be made to enable better quality and true to color prints. The paper you use to print out your pics is also important in producing color that is close to original.
When you view your pics on screen try adjusting the color hue to the point it becomes overcolored and try a few experimental prints to see what level of the slide is needed to be used to achieve a brighter more vibrant picture. I would also like to say that the Canon 210 , whilst it is a very good printer, is at the cheaper end of the photo printer scale.
Talk to your ink and paper supplier, they can often show you or recommmend printers that are much higher and more accurate in delivering brighter and true to color photos.
If you're using a good photo software there are many adjustments. I use Canon printing software, and Photo Gallery that you can get with Windows Vista. Most all have a place to adjust contrast brightness, color, hue, and even cropping and enlarging. In control panel, printer properties, printing preferences you can adjust all of these in there.

First you will have to check the Nozzle of your printer. To do this, press the setup button and select Nozzle Check. Use a plain paper to do this. Press Ok after that. It will print out a pattern for each color. Make sure that the lines are connected to each other specially for black since that you are printing a black and white photo. Lines going across is on a stair case pattern and should be connected to each other. Proceed with cleaning cycle if needed.
You can do a cleaning cycle using your printer of the computer. You can skip this if you have a good Nozzle check.
Using printer: Press setup then select head cleaning.
Using computer. Go to utility of the printer and find maintenance. Click on the head cleaning button.
Once that the nozzle are fine, you can now try printing. I strongly suggest that you use other application first instead of Adobe Photoshop. Since that Photoshop uses color management, it can be that the settings are incorrect. Save first the picture that you opened in Photoshop. You can save it on your desktop to easily locate the file. Make sure that the file is in jpeg format. Now to isolate the issue if it is cause by a software or not, try the standard application for your O.S.
Smaple Application: Windows O.S. : Windows Picture and Fa Viewer - right click on the file and select open with. - select windows picture and fax viewer. - folow the on screen instuctions. Note: If you are now on the window on what pinter to use. Make sure that you set the option for printers under preferences to print in gray scale or black only. Select also the correct paper type. - Proceed with printing.
Mac OSX: Preview or Iphoto - open the picture under one of the application. - click file then print. - Make sure printer is selected. - underneath the print option, you will have to go to print setting. - find the option that says color then select black. - select the appropriate settings for paper. - the click on print.
Now see if it did print out corectly. If it did, it means that the appplication is the one causing this. If you are familiar with the color manage features of the application Photoshop. Let Photoshop handles the color. After getting to the widow what printer to use, to the the preferences of the printer and select the correct paper type. You will have to find the color management of the printer.
For Windows, It under the advance option under the main tab. Select off no color adjustment. For Mac instead of going to print setting, find color manage and turn it off. Select off no color adjustment.
Then try printing.
Regarding your other question, If the printer is producing excess inks on your print out when ot comes to black printing and color printing, that pad needs replacement.
Right click on the photo to be printed and select edit. When the picture is displayed pull down file and select 'page set up'. Set to fit 1 to 1 pages. Leave the margins and center were they're at. Pull down file and select 'print preview'. If this fits covers most of the page , type c (this closes this window and returns you to the previous one).and pull down file and select 'print'. If not again type c, select file and 'page set up' again and select land scape. If this is better, print this
Canon has a number of things you can check in their knowledgebase. Go here. Type "pink tint" in the search box and click Search. If you select the first item "tinted printing" you will get at least 21 things you can try (only 10 show up per screen).
I have had this issue happen to me when trying to print a photo from my
windows picture program and from the window photo gallery program on
Vista. I believe the problem is a compatibility issue with the windows
Vista photo programs. I was able to print very well using another photo
program. So i suggest printing from another photo program. My camera
came with one that is pretty basic and good at fine tuning the
pictures. I used the Canon zoombrower ex program and it printed all my
pictures well. I think most digital cameras come with some type of photo editing program. You should try printing from it instead widows photo folders or windows photo gallery. Using my camera's photo software solved my issue well. try this out to see if it
works for you. good luck
