Dark color prints - HP DeskJet 970Cxi

Archived from groups: comp.periphs.printers (More info?)

Hi,

I have:
- printer: HP DeskJet 970Cxi
- camera: Cannon PowerShot S45
- photo organizer: Thumbs+

I use Adobe Photo Deluxe for printing photos. I find it very easy to use for
printing multiple photos on a single page.
My only problem with it, it prints slightly dark. I tried different setting
and paper, but have not solved the problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Fred

    Are you using the HP drivers or the ones Microsoft includes? For best results
    use the HP drivers available at:
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=60097&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=5&submit.x=4&lang=en&cc=us

    In the HP drivers you can go to the preferences in the driver, select color,
    then advanced and you can set the saturation if needed.
