    We just purchased a HP CM1415fnw Laserjet All-in-one to replace an older Inkjet model. The Laserjet is pretty fantastic and will do about everything but shine your shoes. However...

    Printing photographs either directly from a high res jpeg or as scanned is.. well, poor. Looks like blotchy old You-tube quality pics.

    There's no reason to think the printer is faulty since text and graphics from the web print fine. I recognize the color resolution on this thing is only 1200 by 1200 but that's similar to our old inkjet and it prints excellent quality pictures.

    Anyone have any suggestions with respect to how to improve this poor photo quality or at least how to understand why it is what it is?

    Thanks

    You do realize that Laser printers will rarely give the Picture quality that an inkjet will.

    Yes, I do understand that lasers do not match ink for picture quality but our CM1415 isn't acceptable period. I'm not trying to make photo quality pictures but I did expect something better than what I'm seeing.
