    How does photo magenta and photo cyan differ from magenta and cyan (inks for
    my pixma ip4000 printer)

  2. Simplified spoken, those "photo" colours are lighter than the non-photo
    colours. If you must print out light-blue (like sky) or light-pink (like
    in faces) with non-photo colours, an inkjet printer mixes dots with empty
    spaces, so under magnification you see a speckled pattern on your printout.

    On the other hand, with those photo-colours you don't need empty spaces,
    since the colour is lighter from the beginning on. Therefor the printout
    doesn't look any more speckled.

    Hope that helps,
