    Default Help of a different kind....printing

    I have printed some flowers but they do not look the same on paper as on screen. They are dull. would gloss photo paper make a difference? I want to cut them out en stick a lollipop in the middle for a birthday party This is what it looks like..



    This is how I want it to look.

    Hmmm these printing issues and be very complicated. Gloss paper might help but I suspect they will still be similar to your paper one. My printer always prints much darker than my screen and I usually brighten everything before printing. I don't have the same problem however when I get photo's printed professionally.
    Not sure what else I can suggest. Perhaps a double print over the original print might help? but would need to feed through exactly in the same place.

    Very good thought. Didn't think of it. Could be right
