Re: Pixma Pro 100 prints are too dark

I'm having the same problem with dark prints.  I'm rather new at this.  Set up the printer tonight and printed on hp glossy to start with.  Wasn't happy with the prints, but haven't bought a supply of Canon paper yet.  Opened the free sample of Canon Luster and printed a couple of pics.  The prints are dark--not vivid as I expected--compared to the ones printed on an hp 1300 series printer (about 4 years old--used 5 colors plus black).  I'm not comparing the prints to my monitor, although they do seem brighter there,too.  I don't have any special software, just trying to use Canon Easy Photo Print.  So, Canon paper, Canon ink, Canon software, what am I doing wrong?
