I can do everything with my printer( Dell) via my computer( Packard Bell) except printing photos onto photo paper. I've installed my printer on a friends computer and it works perfectly. It even works directly from my camera via pictbridge. I've carried out a full recovery program on my computer taking it back to factory settings but I still can't print photos on photo paper from my computer. It will print photos onto plain paper and even heavy weight archival paper. Dell claim it must be my windows setup and Packard Bell say it must be the printer drivers. Please can you help? I have windows vista home premium.

hmmm seems like your printer isn't recognizing the ink carts installed or its running into some other malfunction regarding to the ink tray system in the printer is there any pop ups coming on your computer screen about the printer via the canon software that was installed? (if any software was downloaded from canon or software from a cd)
You have to shift the paper tray. Click on start, click on printer/faxes right click click on your printer, click on printer preferences, select photo printing borderless. This shifts your paper tray to photo paper.
Download the photo to your My Pictures folder. (Vista is different)
Printer with photo printing capability connected to your computer, (Or an All-In-One machine), go to your My Pictures folder. Double-click to open it. Right-click on the photo you wish to print. Left-click on Print in the list.

printer wont print anything. computer says no print documents pending even though ive clicked print a few times and on different programs and internet pages as well. printer will print only if i copy something press print test page from the printer itself but it doesnt print anything from the computer
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.
