Hi, I would suggest using a photo program such as MGI's Photosuite or similar, then enhance picture to your likings before printing.


Cheers.

This topic is huge and much to detailed to give you a full answer here, but basically you need to calibrate your printer settings.

You may have your monitor brightness and contrast too high.

Adjust so the picture on screen more or less matches your print.

Then adjust the photo on screen, using the programs adjustments for light and dark.

Experiemnt a little and you'll get acceptable prints.
