thanks to WAK/Diesee/barryoneoff etal for the useful information For the record after sorting the trash shots all pix are burned to CD. When making various changes - 'Save As' is the norm.
The problem solved. I did not say - it did not occur to mention I had just changed the colour cart[ compatable] in the six colour printer[Epson Stylus Photo 750] A variation in ink formulation perhaps?
The remedy Enlarge[zoom] to picture to maximum and clone away some of the darkest ares with some slightly lighter. Reset the printer from 'Photo Paper' to 'Film' - this ensures not so much ink is flying around. That did it - perfick.
Printing Tip If the 'Film' setting is acceptable for your own work - this will spin out the colour cart life.
