I tried printing a photo on HP Everyday Photo Paper, Semi-Glossy and I wonder if something is wrong with the paper or if i had the wrong expectations. When I printed a photo it came out with very muted colors, and in a speckled, mottled sort of pattern, almost as if looks like a mosaic, with thousands of individual ink drop spots instead of a single picture. I know it would be better if I could post a picture of the issue, and if i could figure out how I would. but maybe this makes sense to someone.
I have also printed the same picture at the same 4x6 size with the same printer with a different brand of paper, and it turned out fine. I don't know what the problem is, it seems hard to believe though that this is normal for this. The printer is an Epson Artisan 837.
