Solved: Printed photo very different from on screen image

Q: Solved: Printed photo very different from on screen image

I recently acquired a Canon EOS Rebel T1i (500D) 15.1 mp. Previously, I had a Canon PowerShot A80 (4.0 mp).

Here's my question. Whenever I try to print a photo from my Canon i860 printer, the picture is a lot brighter than the image on screen (overexposed). I need to darken the picture significantly before printing it, in order to get a ressemblant result on paper. When I was printing a photo from my PowerShot A80, the result was almost identical to the image on screen.

Does this have anything to do with my new camera's higher resolution? Would I need to lower the resolution in order to match the printer's capacity?

This is becoming annoying and I really would like to find a solution.

Thank you.

Hi, I've started getting a strange 'pale' line or banding down the very left side of my printed photos. I first noticed it on a night shot (see link below) and then on the other one link below, a daytime one.

All the ink cartridges are full or almost full and I've done nozzle check and head cleaning. It doesn't show up on a greyscale B&W print I did (or at least not that I could notice).

It's on the leading edge, the part of the image being printed first when using the full size paper eg. A4, 10x15cm.

On a whim while writing this I just tried printing a 7"x5" image in the middle of a sheet of A4 and there was NO banding. Same result with a margin of 2cm rather than the default 0.5cm.
With the 0.5cm default margin, it's like whatever is going on only affects the next 0.5cm of the paper (the first 0.5cm of the printed image).

Is this a paper-feed thing then?
Any ideas how to solve it to avoid wasting lots of paper?
Other than this the printer, whilst old, is still very good

Hi, this is my first post and i hope that somebody can help me!

I am running Windows XP service pack 3.
I'm not too bad on the laptop but things don't come naturally easy so i would appreciate a simple response if that is possible.

Problem is;
I have images in "My Pictures"/Picasa3 and also in the Canon Zoom Browser EX that i have just loaded onto my machine,
If i download new images from my camera or card they automatically go into all 3 applications.
Worst thing though is that if i delete a single image or a folder from just one of the applications i lose that image/images from all 3!!!!! I also had Elements 4 and the situation was just the same but i have deleted Elements for now.

What i want to be able to do is;
1) Load Elements 9 onto my laptop.
2) Download and manage all pics from my wifes point and shoot into "My Pictures" only.
3) Drag my wifes pics into Elements for editing only as required.
4) Download my pics from my Canon 7D into the Canon application only.......for editing of RAW images.
5) Move pics from the Canon application into Elements 9 for further processing as required.

I dont know if i am missing something really simple here but i feel sure that the above cannot be too difficult.....or can it??

Any help to get me on the way to enjoying the results of my expensive new 7D would be greatly appreciated.

Like one of the other posters, I am trying to make refrigerator magnets. I’m using magnetic peel & stick business card magnets. Then print my own photos on blank business cards. (Like the other poster I know they’ll be flimsy but mine will be for decoration only.)

But the problem is - I can’t create my design the right size so it prints out as business card size. I can't make a business-card size rectangle in Paint to use as a template - it's never business-card size size when printed. Onscreen it looks exactly right - doesn’t print the way it looks. How can I create an image that is business-card-size when printed? I need a blank template to repeatedly paste different photos onto.

Also, can I print business cards individually? -like how you print one mailing label at a time in Word? Because I won't need hundreds of them, just one of each photo or design to make one magnet.

FYI, attachment shows the product I will use.

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, “The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?”

Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.

I'm sure this is easy for someone-- but I'm not sure how to accomplish it.

I have a digital image of a family member that is currently 800 X 600.

Unfortunately, the local drug store machine gives two choices- $.22 for one 4" X 5" or several wallet sized pictures on an 8" X 10" for $6.00. Yes, I am cheap- but that doesn't make sense to me.

In the past I have inserted a digital image into a Publisher document and copied a space which included the properly sized photo and a surrounding space- pasted into Irfanview and saved the new digital file to print one wallet on a 4" X 5"- but I have the feeling there has to be a better way to do it??

Actually, what I would like is two wallets on a 4" X 5" that I can cut apart. I realize that 800 X 600 isn't super quality, but it is a digital image that is readily available and should be sufficient to show off a wallet photo. And I think a better solution than my crude Publisher attempt. (This is not a "one of" project- but something I can use again and again and is a cheap solution to having fresh photos without wasting money or photo paper).

Your help would be greatly appreciated

Sounds as if you had photos on a Flash drive, and the flash drive is damaged or corrupted.... If so, you might not be able to fix the problem.
Check on the HP website to see if they still have a trouble shooter for damaged images. Or take a look at programs such as Adobe Elements. Picasa,,,,,, GIMP (my favorite),,, and We have used all of these at one time or another and all are good for certain things. GIMP requires some study but is good after you learn.

I have a color photo I have been using for years on various projects (small sample attached). Recently, I started having a few items printed professionally, and the results are rather poor. The blue background comes out looking gray, and the food colors are all dark and lifeless. On my end, the image looks great on my monitor and when printed on an inkjet printer.

Obviously, the problems are due to the conversion between the RGB image and the CMYK printing process.

I don't have any software that can convert to CMYK, and at least one of the printers wants a JPG source anyway.

On my last project, I sent a hard copy proof for them to color match, but the final result wasn't much better than the standard color matching.

So, I'm curious if there's anything I can do on my end that will improve the quality of the final image when printed?

So, I was going to post a thread about this problem that had buggered me for quite a while, and started happening for no apparent reason. Found a solution while typing. I had the above mentioned weird tint of yellow in my Image Previewer (apparently would've been in Photo Gallery too if I used it), but it didn't happen with any other image editors/viewers. (attachments show the difference). Found this site, downloaded the color profile from here(black-scaled one, but I don't think it makes a difference. FYI, the adobe link on the article doesn't work). There are most probably better solutions, as the color profiles are just generic and not really well optimized for anyone's monitor, but it didn't seem to change anything for me(except for fixing the yellow hue). Hope this will someday help someone else

But I'm getting sick of uploading them, Here on vistax64 I can add the actual image to my thread.. other places I have to link it, so I have to copy two different things.. it's just a pain.

I have tons and tons of pictures of my entire build.. and step by step pictures of changing a CPU, changing a hsf on a GPU, and many other things..

After believing all the negativity from the past 2 years, I finally bought myself a wonderful new rig with Vista Ultimate 64 installed. I've only been tinkering with it for about one week, but the Vista experience really is a beautiful and intelligent one.

My question: last night I suddenly lost image view of all my photographs. The photos are there, they come up fine when clicked and can be edited within Window Picture Viewer etc. But when I go to my Pictures folder, I cannot see the photos themselves no matter what view I try. What I get instead is some default "placeholder" picture in each one's place.

What did I do and how can I reverse it?

I wonder if you can help.

I have CorelDraw/CorelPhoto 12

I want to take a colour photo and turn most of it black and white but to leave a few areas in colour.

I have seen this done on Photoshop by creating a second layer and cutting our the parts you want to be in colour then merging the layers - it appears to be easy but I cannot work this out on CorelPhoto.
Can anyone help please?

Many thanks

I installed the freeware beta-version. When asked what type of image file formats I wanted to be able to edit I selected "all."
Unfortunately the program used too many of my system resources so I got rid of it. (There was no working uninstaller so I just deleted the program folder and link in the start menu.) Now I can't open simple jpeg and other image files from my HD because Windows (98) says the program I need to open them is "missing."
How can I recover the ability to open simple image files?

Hello to all,
I have just noted while trying to bring W8 up to speed, that Windows Photo Viewer can not display .NEF or .CR2 RAW image files. I have associated all the image file extensions with the Windows Photo Viewer and do not use the App Version. I don't recall but tried to begin the process of finding "codecs" that allow it to show the files, which they do very well in W7 Photo Viewer. Does anyone have experience with this or ideas. I found Nikon's specific Windows 7 codecs program and it would not install. Thanks for any assistance!

I have a Dell 1750 Inspiron laptop that I use "as a desktop" as every piece of hardware is connected to it.
It runs with Windows 7 Home Edition. It has a 4gb memory and a 450gb hard drive which is less than half used.

I have the screen saver set to Photos and usually have a cut-in time of 1 hour idle.

The screen saver cuts in exactly when it should and scrolls through my photos for as long as the laptop is left idle.

However, as soon as I touch the mouse/keyboard, instead of reverting to the "normal" screen the photos disappear, the blank screen fades for a few seconds and then a message appears in a box, saying that the Photos Screen Saver is not responding, and gives the options of either close the program or wait for the programme to respond. Waiting doesn't seem to work so I have to click on close the programme and then cancel the statement that Windows will try to find a solution, because it doesn't!

I have tried to vary the time before the screen saver kicks in, anything from 1 minute to several hours but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Can anyone help please?

A:Photo Screen Saver wont revert back to live screen

Have you checked the timing for when the HDD turns off or Sleep or Hibernation kicks in [I disable both of those and lengthen the time on the HDD to several hours], Control Panel, Power Options?

The reason I mentioned the HDD is the symptoms you mentioned seem to apply. The screen saver could be in memory and not affected by the HDD until it's asked for something.

I'm looking for a software that allows me to see a picture (jpg, etc...) in full screen but at the same time that I can have at half screen able to for example use Word 2013 at the same time

When I use Windows Photo Viewer the only way to see a picture full screen is playing the slide show and then pressing pause so that the pic does not change, but when I have it at half screen the rest of the screen is black I cannot have my screen with another program to write on there.

which pic software may allow that?

I'm not looking for advanced photo programs because I don't want to edit the pic just to see it in full screen.

A:full screen photo viewer at half screen

To start, there is a difference between the Maximize/Restore button in the middle of the 3 at top right corner of windows and the feature of Full Screen gained by toggling the F11 key on most computers. Using Full Screen allows viewing but not toolbars, Taskbar, etc. One way of getting part of what you want is to have two windows/programs open and right-click the Taskbar to choose how the windows are displayed. Clicking in the middle of the image windows to get the focus on it then pressing F11 should show the image plus it wouldn't affect the other program. It probably would work better if using a 23" or larger monitor or using 2 monitors, splitting the tasks between them.

Size of a photo streamed from pc is 1/4 of a 4K TV screen. I am using Windows Explorer and point the TV to render the photo. The TV and the PC is wire-connected to a router. There is no such problem when streaming videos.
Attached as follow are two picture that show how the photos are displayed on the TV. The first one is from source image having resolution of 1600 x 1200 and the second one is 7360 x 4912. It appears that the displayed size has nothing to do with the resolutions.
How can the photo be displayed full screen?

A:Photo streamed from PC is 1/4 of TV screen

The TV is displaying the pictures in their original resolutions. There is nothing wrong with how they are showing. BTW, that is not 1/4 of the screen. You may want to change your heading.

Suggest that you check the manual for that tv to see if there is any way to allow pictures over the network to be displayed for full screen.

I have Corel Photo House and Photoshop 4 photo editing software. I don't really use them a lot, and admit that I'm not very good at doing most things. One thing I've had occasion to do lately is to take a person from one image and copy it to a second image. The problem is that it takes a really steady hand, and patience, to trace around the outline of what I want to copy.

A:how to change photo background log on screen welcome?

Hello Hesam,

Do you want to simply change the wallpaper of your logon screen or do you want to get your Windows 7 logon screen to look like your XP logon screen?

See also: Log On Screen - Change

To achieve the first;
You could use a tool like Windows 7 Logon Background Changer to change the wallpaper of your logon screen.

To achieve the latter;
There are various ways to change the look of your logon screen. I personally use Logon Workshop.
It allows you to change virtually anything, and so, you can make your Windows 7 logon screen look exactly like the logon screen from Windows XP.

This tool does require a lot of fine tuning to achieve it, so here's another way;

Navigate to Group Policy Editor.
Go to Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options.
In the panel on the right, click on Interactive Logon: and enable or disable that feature.
Now you'll have to manually type in your username and password to log in (just like with Windows XP, or at least the version I had).

I hope that this is what you meant
Good luck and keep us posted,

My system Froze up and went to a black screen; upon reboot it wouldn't get past the BIOS load screen. I reset the CMOS and now everything works fine except an issue with the photo screen saver. The other screen savers work, but the photo screen saver will not. When I try to go into settings with the photos screen saver selected it looks like it loads something but nothing pops up, and then the screen saver window becomes unusable. It doesn't freeze but it acts like there is a second dialog box open and it's waiting for you to finish with that dialog box (if you know what I mean). I can't preview with photos selected either, but it doesn't become unusable.

A:Photo screen saver won't work.

I would be more concerned with what caused the major crash than little problem with the photo ss.

For that you can try running
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If you can find a c:\windows\minidump folder and zip the contents of it and attach it to your next post that would be great.
If there's nothing in there or the folder doesn't exist nevermind, I'm just curious what caused the hard reset.

Hi everyone,

I have been experiencing a problem with my laptop lately. Sometimes when I put too much stuff on my hard drive, after a few days, a blue screen of death will appear with the following message:


Technical information:
STOP: 0x0000007A (0xc03E79A4, 0xC000000E, 0xF9E69384, 0x07BE6860)

atapi.sys - Address F9E69384 base at F9E5C000, Date stamp 41107b4d.

Beginning dumping of physical memory.

I can also hear a clicking sound when this is about to happen. I might thinking it might be the hard drive but I am not sure.

Everytime after I reformat, the bsod will not appear for a month or two and comes back again.

Also, my system clock is not accurate at all. At the moment, it is several months off. Not sure what is wrong with it.

Would appreciate any help!!! Thanks

A:Blue screen of death. Attached the photo.

First try clearing the paging file following the directions here:

Then run chkdsk on the drive:

The log for chkdsk is available in the Event Viewer after rebooting (run eventvwr.msc) in the Applications Log > Winlogon entry. You can double click it to view the details and there is a copy icon that can copy the details to the clipboard for pasting.

It is definitely a hard drive problem.

You might try removing and reseating the drive. Not really hard on a laptop -- probably just a couple of screws holding it down. Check your manual if unsure.

Got my wife a Creative Zen Micro Photo player for Christmas. She is getting familiar with adding music files and creating play lists. She is having problems charging it though. Sometimes when she plugs it into a USB port on a PC, a symbol that looks like an AC power plug blinks on top of the battery status indicator and the battery charges fairly quickly. Other times, plugging into the same PC's USB port will show a green lightning bolt blinking on top of the battery indicator and it seems to take forever to add just a little extra charge. We have tried different cables on different PCs with the same results.

The user manual just mentions the battery symbol but we have not found any information on the meaning of blinking lightning bolts and plugs. Can anybody explain the meaning of them and why the player sometimes does not seem to want to take a charge?

Hey everyone...

I've had a long and difficult battle with vista and this computer.

My latest issue after taking the computer back to the custom builder and having him reinstall windows completely:

It seems I have had my other issues fixed (damn last time I said this, I jinxed it and my computer "crash dumped" again). I used to have it crash all the time, which I thought I fixed by reinstalling and uninstalling a bunch of programs. Then the internet ran slow and I did a bunch of things (defragment hard drive, ran ccleaner for temp files and did some registry cleanup, tried the whole editing options of my connection and maybe more but I can't remember) and the only thing that worked was using command prompt to restore original settings to the internet connection.

I thought all was well until I said all was well and then the computer crash dumped again. I found out it was a compatibility issue with vista and the nvidia chipset + more than 2GB of RAM (I have 4GB). The fix was a download of the updates, which seems to have fixed it but I knock on wood.

So now... I'm trying to view photos with windows photo gallery and when I double click on a thumbnail, or right click and "view with windows photo gallery", a black screen shows up where the picture should be. I see the list of editing options, but the photo screen is black.

Suddenly he can't load the PC anymore, it just goes to the Blue Screen. Eve if I chose Safe Mode, it would shows the BSOD or restart.I had formatted the PC, and reinstalled Win XP. First try, same problem - BSOD.I had re-formatted and re-installed XP at least 5 times, but the problem doesn't go away. I had went to the debugging screen and done chkdsk /f, and all other options available (like fixing the boot sector, the master boot, etc), and still get the error.I am starting to think that this could be a hardware issue, but since the computer was working well before the infection, I'm kind of dumbfounded as to how a virus could mess with the hardware.Here's the pic I took of the BSOD:Uploaded with ImageShack.usPlease help!

Hi Luiz, is this a Dell machine? Here's what I read on a different forum about it:...had that same problem. I suspect Dell gave the wrong Windows recovery disk to a bunch of XPS 600 owners. My XPS is almost 2 years old the very first time I tried to reformat it I got that error. I am no expert maybe there is another way to solve it but please do try to contact dell for the correct DISK. Now please note they sent me 3 Windows reinstalltion disks before I got the correct one. After that reinstalling windows XP worked just fine...This is a possibility!Another thing I am inclined to believe is that your BIOS settings might have changed.You can try getting the BIOS back to defaults, and restart the machine, see if it works!If not, you can also try booting into the BIOS and look for SATA operations, and switch setting to ATA, save and try again.Ensure to make a note of all your BIOS settings, you might want to take pictures of these as you did with the BSOD, it's quick and simple.Let me know how it went, there are other ways to approach this issue.Regards

Hi. I've been experiencing a very bizarre problem for the last couple of days. After restarting Win7 it gets to the login screen (the one that says "Windows 7" at the bottom) that is supposed to show the available profiles. But no profiles are shown. After about 30 seconds an error message pops up that appears to be in the "Wingdings" or some similar font. It's gibberish. I can't find any info on this anywhere. If anyone has any clue I'd appreciate it.

I was able to get into a command prompt by booting to the repair console thing from the Windows disc. Startup repair did nothing. I tried the fix mbr, rebuild bcd, and fix boot commands and they didn't help. I actually started getting a black screen at bootup that saied winload.exe cannot be verified. I seem to have "fixed" that but now am back at this error message. It's the oddest thing I've ever seen.

It does the same with "safe mode" (minus the error message) and even with "last know good...".

Here's a pic for you native Wingdings speakers out there Also, the cursors stays on screen and can be moved, plus every few seconds the screen flashes black very quickly. Does the error message look familiar to anyone (except for the font used of course). Note that going into the repair disc and using start-up repair did nothing.

Looks like a virus to me. If you could get into safe mode try Malwarebytes Antimalware. As you can't, try using Windows Defender Offline. This will scan your PC for viruses without needing windows.

As far as I know, you can’t really do this with the Windows screensavers, sorry.

Vista screen saver wont show photo titles there doesnt appear to be any options to include titles anywhere ...anyone have an idea how to get photo titles to show on a slideshow?

XP shows photo titles as slide show runs

OS Vista Home Premium 64 bit

A:Vista screen saver wont show photo titles

If I remember correctly, the XP screensaver you are referring to doesn't do that (I don't have an XP machine up and running to verify). And for that matter, I don't think the Vista one works any differently (odds are, I'm seeing the same thing as you in my 32bit version of Home Premium, and the closest I see in the settings for that screensaver are 'tagging' options, which I'm pretty sure won't do what you're asking for ).

Are you sure you're not mistaking it for a third party screensaver perhaps? I know Google's Photo Screensaver lists details like that.

I made a screenshot file so that when I take a screenshot I can shove the screenshot in there. Should I be using another program? as now I am getting my screenshots coming up on my Start screen's live photo's tile. How can I control which of my pictures appear in my start screen's photo tile please or in my slideshow. (I've got on my laptop adobe photoshop elements 12)

A:Choosing photos appearing on start screen photo's tile

Hello Nougart,

By default, all images in your Pictures library is what is used to shuffle on your Photos tile. You could save or move the screenshots to another location to stop it.

Another option would be to clear the tiles after you have moved or deleted the screenshot to have them stop showing on the Photos tile.

Hope this helps,

I cannot find an icon to change my single photo viewing to full screen. Is this another Vista "oops"? Do you have a solution?

I'm using a Toshiba Netbook NB505 running Windows 7 Starter.

When I try installing Canon photo software, the install fails due to the lower resolution setting of the netbook (1024 x 600). I had read elsewhere that a way around this was to go into screen resolution > advanced settings > monitor - and un-check "Hide modes that this monitor cannot display".

That option is grayed out for me. Do any of you guys know why this is grayed-out, or have a work-around for this?

A:Change screen resolution on a netbook to install photo software?

This spec sheet from Toshiba shows that as the only resolution available:
Toshiba NB505-N508B Refurbished Netbook
Looks like that Netbook is a bit older, probably back in 2011.
