I think I've asked this question before; maybe not. The images look great on the screen; but, when I print the image, it's VERY muddy looking. The image views on the monitor bright and intense. The printer takes the image,and when it prints, it appears someone spilled tea over the entire print. Very upsetting. I realize I'm not using a calibrated pro printer; but, it should be better than this. Any directions to start? I'm using a HP 826 printer, something from QVC; my wife likes how you can write on the pictures with it. Most/all the pictures have this problem; so I'm assuming it is something in a printer/software/calibration problem. My best example; we have all experienced this, an indoor shoot, nighttime, incandescent light, and the flash doesn't fire. Viola- muddy picture. Your turn for ideas.
