Re: Prints on glossy paper turn out slightly dark

Hi Francesco,

Glossy papers will by their very nature give you darker blacks, and this is a good thing & expected.  Might this be what you're seeing when you say your pics are dark?

It's also common for those who are new to this screen-to-print matching effort for their displays to be too light.  A good thing to test is to compare a blank white screen on your monitor to a blank piece of your printer paper.  If the display is "brighter", then there's no way your prints are going to match your display.  There's more information on this here:
