Why does my monochrome print sepia in grayscale setting? I have a Canon iP8760 printer. Cheers Mike
You are not giving us much information to help you. What OS and version of Elements are you using? Are you printing in the Organizer or the Editor?
My guess is that your image is not really monochrome black and white but is in RGB color mode. This will happen if you are scanning a black and white photo in color mode. Open your photo in the Editor, go to Image>Mode and, if it is set to RGB, change it to greyscale. Confirm that you want to discard all color information and you will have a black and white image.
If that is not the case, you need to look at your printer settings and whether your ink cartridges need to be changed.
Many thanks. I am using Elements 13 and Windows10. The printer is new and the cartridges are not empty.
I always scan for reference purposes my darkroom produced monochrome prints in grayscale on the Canonscan LiDE 700F scanner. With the new printer having a gray cartridge I had hoped for good b&w
I followed your instructions in Elements and removed the colour information. I printed another image using the prtinetr setup making sure also that grayscale was ticked. This print is even more sepia. I use Expert window in Elements.
OK. The problem seems to be your printer settings. Each printer is different, but here are the appropriate settings for my HP printer. You should see something similar for your Canon.
Hope this helps.
Have tried all that plus telling printer that plain paper loaded but using photo gloss. Result was greatly reduced sepia. I went thru all this with the previous printer but all to no avail.
Thanks for your help. Will tackle Canon.
Well havent been to Canon yet. But had the thought that if I printed onto PhotoPpaper Glossy II but told printer that I was using Pro Platinum paper the resuly being a pretty acceptable monochrome (b/w) image. Obviously all in the ICC profiles of each paper. Cheers Mike
