I am very new to this and my "tech savvy" is not brilliant.
Question: I have put together a Collage of pictures. I printed it and the quality was very dark. However, I did priny on "normal" A4 paper and not photographic paper. If I print on photographic paper, will the quality be better, or are there "tweeks" that will help me?
Use HP photo paper: HP photo papers are optimized for use with inkjet printers and provide quality prints for craft projects or framing.
Take high resolution photos: Higher resolution photographs result in clearer, more vibrant prints.
Edit photos before printing: Before printing, use photo editing tools to improve colors, brightness, contrast, and any other appearance settings.
Check the computer display: If your computer monitor displays colors inaccurately, printed photo quality might be unsatisfactory. Try changing to the monitor's default color settings or use a calibration tool to confirm the color accuracy.
Use Best or Max DPI quality in print settings: Higher print quality settings provide best results.
