Why do my photos look poor?

Poor quality photographs can be the result of a variety of issues - the image quality, media type and colour spaces all impact highly on the output. To overcome poor quality output, it is important to consider the various causes of the issue.

  • Print Quality – Make sure the print quality setting in the printer driver is on the highest possible setting.
  • Paper – If you are printing a photograph make sure you are using good photo/gloss paper to enhance the quality.
  • Ink/Toner – Make sure you are using either the manufacturer’s original consumables or a very good 3rd party brand. Using a poor compatible toner will certainly lead to poor print quality. – rest assured at Printerbase our compatibles are all selected based on quality and won’t affect your printer’s warranty.
