    Photo printing?

    Hi All,
    I'm experimenting with my colour inkjet all-in-one (Lexmark P4350). I've created a photo montage and although the output looks great on 'normal' paper. When I use Fujifilm photo paper however, the photos come out much darker, and slightly more red.

    I'm using the same ink types (photo + colour) on both paper types.

    Is this a common problem? Is there some sort of workaround?

    Cheers...

    Well you'll find that there is colour photo paper and there is colour photo paper . I have tried a lot of different papers on my present epson and it always come back to the same thing --paper quality. The best that I have found is canon stuff but it is more expensive. Different papers will give very different results so I think that you will just have to experiment with different types till you find a paper that performs well with your print.

    Strange that it works with just 'normal' paper though.

    You mean A4 normal non glossy printing paper ? Try Epson and Canon photo paper, afaik they're pretty tolerant to different inks
    Primary kit:
    Fuji S5 Pro - Nikkor AF 50/1.8 - Nikkor AF 85/1.8
    Epson RD-1

    Film Kit:
    Leica M3 - Summicron 50/2 DR - Zeiss ZM 25/2.8 - M-Rokkor 40/2

    Olympus OM2n - Zuiko 50/2 Macro - Zuiko 50/1.4 - Zuiko 35/2.8
