    my first time here....

    i have a ip4200 canon (used also for cd /dvd's as well), which prints
    great happy snaps - fresh, vibrant and good colour rendition.

    unfortunately, it doesn't do anywhere near as good when it comes to
    printing my wife's paintings - which are very tonal and subtle painted.

    a. if i print from viewer / file i get very dark images

    b. through ps i get pretty much the right colours, but a very 'brittle'
    looking print.

    now, other than investing in a 'serious' printer - which i don't
    particularly want to do, do any of you have some suggestions, advice,
    guidance as to how i can print as close to the original as possible?
    (frankly this mess occasionally brings us close to divorce ;-) )


    btw. the whole point of creating the print in the first place is so we /
    she can send it off to galleries, printers, whathaveyou, so THEY have a
    concrete guide to what they should be producing!!!! (i shoot with a chip
    chart, but it seems no one knows what the hell to do with it nowadays.....
