Color laser printer photos look washed out
Posted by: davemchine

I recently purchase a color laser printer, Brother MFC-L3750CDW, for light duty color printing. Mostly sheet music with chords in color. I knew ahead of time that color laser printers don't do all that well with photos. Today I tested with both plain paper and with photo paper. Surprisingly the plain paper looks significantly better than the photo paper which looks very washed out. Other than printing on plain paper is there anything I could do to maximize the photo quality? Thanks

BTW, setup was a breeze, printing is pretty fast, and the manual feed tray seems easy enough to use. I'll post more when I've had more time with it.



Ukulele music I couldn't find anywhere else.

* YMMV based on OS, but hopefully there is some version for which one you are using

That helped quite a bit. It took me a few minutes to figure out how to install the CUPS driver. Adjusting the photo quality was in menu "Color Settings", then adjusted to "vivid" but that wasn't enough so I went into "advanced" and jacked up the contrast and saturation to 75% which produced a pretty good photo. At least good enough for my purposes. Thank you!
