    I have a cannon mp210 all in one printer,scanner. When placing actual photos into the machine to be scanned then printed they come out perfectly fine but when I try to print pictures already imported onto my computer they come out very faint/light. The computer keeps saying the ink levels are low which is incorrect as I have just put in new ones. I beleive this is a issue to do with the colour settings installed on windows 7 as our pictures print out fine when the printer is connected to our lap top. If anyone could help me with changing the colour settings that would be great. Thank you

    Have you made adjustments to the paper type and print quality?

    I had just replaced the ink cartridges so was doing a test print on plain paper which i had the paper setting on that and the print setting I had on custom. Do you think it would make a difference If i had photo paper selected?

    Yes.
    Proper paper and print quality are important.
