    faded printed pictures

    I have searched to find an answer to this problem of faded pictures when printed from windows photo gallery. I have seen a few others having the same problem, but no solutions. I am hoping that someone now can help.

    I can print pictures from other software on my computer, from the internet, etc, with great photo quality. When I print from Windows photo gallery they are very light and faded looking. I have made sure the adjustments are for my printer.

    It seems that most of the people experiencing this problem had canon printers. Does anyone have a solution to this?

    Re: faded printed pictures

    I have found the solution to this problem, you need to untick the checkbox for "borderless printing", this is how to do it:


    When you click print, go to Options > Printer Properties

    Click on the "Page Setup" tab, then Untick the box that says "Borderless Printing"
