My prints looks like sh*t
Mar 1, 2006

Hi,

I have recently purchased an Epson PHOTO RX500 and tried to make some prints. They do not exactly look like the prints in the store - to say the least.

Have anyone experienced the same thing or have any ideas what I should do?

I have tried using different quality and paper selections in the Epson printing software. So far I have made three prints and they basically look equally crappy.

I have used hp everyday photo paper 170g/m2. I have red elsewhere, in this forum, that hp paper isn't the best idea together with Epson. Could that be the problem or can it be something else?

Below you can see the scanned results.
