Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you.
To assist you better, what model printer are you using?
Are you using HP Instant Ink cartridges in the printer?
Printing photos consume more ink than printing documents/text on a regular paper.
For more information about cartridge yields and ink use, click here
Also, check the print settings on the PC, if you have set the print quality to 'Best', it will consume more ink thank Draft or Normal. Refer to this document to know more about this setting. (Print quality and improvement settings)
Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
