Welcome to the HP Community Forum.

 

What you can do with the color, density, and image quality are controlled within the software you are using to submit the job to the printer.

 

There are fewer controls in the standard printer software than might be necessary to print some images "at their best".

 

Full Feature Software

HP ENVY 5000 All-in-One Print and Scan Driver and Accessories

 

Example

9025_Printing_Preferences_Printing_Shortcuts_19025_Printing_Preferences_Printing_Shortcuts_1

 

========================================================================

What else?

 

Actual photo printing software provides additional color correction options.

 

Be sure when / if you change the characteristics of the image, that you save the edited version (changes) in a separate file (different name)

 

Example software...

 

Irfanview > Free

 

 Irfanview provides (free) exceptional software that can be used for a variety of scan and print tasks, including the “Mirror” or horizontal flip function plus several other options not found elsewhere.

 

  • Create a Restore Point (optional, recommended)
  • Download the appropriate version (32bit or 64bit) of the program from the Website and install the program
  • Additional information at the website, including:  FAQ

 

NOTES

Both 32bit and 64bit versions are available.

 

For example,

Irfanview 64bit version – Information and Download

Software and All Plugins for 64bit version:  https://www.fosshub.com/IrfanView.html

 

Includes Plugin for creating Multiple-page PDF files for images (Poster or large paper printing)

 

Includes access (where available) to Scan with HP Twain > Adjust settings > Save

 

How to find Help within the Irfanview software

 

Once installed, open the software > tab Help

 

Example help entry:

Vertical/Horizontal Flip

  • Click on the Image Menu, then Vertical Flip. The image will turn upside-down. The left/right orientation will stay the same.
  • Click on the Image Menu, then Horizontal Flip. The image will turn side-to-side, as in a mirror.

 

Note: The effect can be used on a smaller portion (rectangle selection) of an image, as well as the entire image.

 

============================================================

 Example setup - Image options / Simple Print
