Please explain why B/W image has blue edges

    I have 2 Canon printers (i470D and i9900) and they both produce
    beautiful prints. However, in some configurations they produce a faint
    blue outline around total black images.

    I discovered that when I tell the print driver I'm using high-res or
    photo paper, the blacks cease to be black but contain blue and the blue
    bleeds past the black where I can see it.

    I tried checking the black and white box and I still get color. I even
    tried turning down the color jets to 0. Nothing seems to work. I even
    ran the calibration patterns and still the blue shows through.

    Are there any discussion threads that explain about how to optimize the
    printer drivers? Otherwise, I'm thrilled with the Canon output!

    Thanks!

    From what software are you printing.
    Can you use icc profiles in that software? If so, do you use them.
    If not; Google on colormanagement and the use of icc profiles.
    These profiles need to fit your printer, paper, and ink.
