My Photosmart 7460 gives great, rich prints directly from my camera's card. And, when the same images are stored in my HP9000 they also look great on the screen. However, when I try to print from the computer, they look as though some of the blue (cyan) is lacking; the greens are yellow-green, some light blues are white, etc. How can I adjust (calibrate) the printer driver so that the prints are the same whether coming from the cameral card or the computer?

Dirty mirrors will gives you dull color images..It seems color combination faulty..

Take supply status page..
chk colors..If color is dull(light) clean laser scanner assembly mirrors.
Do the color calibration..
Print from other file..
You can usually calibrate your printer. When you first get your printer you may have to run through tests. One of them is where you print out a sheet with multiple colours on it and you then scan it to calibrate the scanner.Scanning will rarely give a perfect representation of the actual photo or image but if you do calibrate it may solve your problems.
Hi, did you tried to calibrate your colors but on the printer? The printer decides which color it's gonna print, regardless to the color on the screen. He's gonna try most of the time to print the closest color he can make.

You should have a tool with the HP printing software. Otherwise i guess you can print a test page to check the colors.
Make sure each color Cyan/magenta/yellow and black print corectly on the test page. Usally on HP printers you have to hold the Go button 5-10 sec and it's gonna print the test page but refer to your manual if you are not sure how to do this.
Could also be a problem with your print heads, check if there is a procedure in the manual to clean those.
This could be from the image you are printing. If you are printing from a computer or memory card, the dpi (dots per inch) may be higher than some.Standard printing is typically 400dpi, and you can change the settings on your computer or the printer directly. Memory cards and some photos from your computer may be 600dpi and will likely take much longer to print since there is more "color information" that it is trying to fill. Let me know if this helps.
PIM uses the exif-info in your original jpg. I'm not sure, but I think if you edit the picture this exif becomes useless (because it relates to the original), even if you save the file including the exif-info.
Also, you apparently you need additional printing software to make use of PIM. This was in the news on this site sometime ago. If you search, you can find out where to download this software.
If you've got photoshop, you should also have a program called adobe gamma. With this you can calibrate your monitor. You should be able to find it under start->configuration.
When you have calibrated your monitor, you should of course not use the settings on your printer that push up the saturation/contrast of your images, or else you will get Disney-colors. (I made the mistake of using 'digital camera correction' on the 1270 myself).
I get good results printing from photoshop, with a calibrated monitor as well as some media profiles for the paper I use (just calibrating your monitor will probably be enough to get pictures that are close to what is on the screen, I just haven't tried that yet). If you want to calibrate your monitor, there are some good tips on http://come.to/digitaldarkroom. (it's where I got what I know about this). Btw, I cant seem to reach the site right now, but it will probably be up again in a few hours.
