PGBK ink usage on my Pixma IP8720?

I've been using my IP8720 for a couple months now and have made enough prints that I'm on my second set of XL C/M/Y/Bk/Gy cartridges after the originals. I'm surprised at how much PGBK ink has been used; it's about 50% full according to the monitor. I was under the impression that the only time that ink is used is for document printing, which I don't do on this printer. Is it using PGBK on photos?

BTW, is there any way to print a status report from this printer showing the number of prints I've made?

And FWIW, I'm very happy with this printer. Thanks for the advice I received here leading to the purchase.
