Help: Canon i950 prints look washed out

    I got an i950 to replace my clog-happy Epson 780. The i950 is quiet,
    fast, and produces pictures that are less grainy. Unfortunately,
    they're a bit washed out, especially skin tones.

    I've tried a bunch of settings (and eaten up several sheets of Photo
    Paper Pro). Cranking in some ICM helps the skin tones, but shifts the
    purples/magentas into the blue spectrum.

    Any ideas?

  2. A Canon rep told me to simply use manual colour override in the driver
    software to dial out a colour cast. As a one-time chemical darkroom user, I
    can dig it...

  3. My experience with the i950 has been exceptionally satisfying. It may
    be the paper that has made the difference. I found the local Sam's
    Club is selling Ilford Galerie Smooth Gloss Paper, and it includes a
    folder with recommended settings for its use with many different
    printers. Their listed settings for the Canon i-Series has given me
    excellent results. And very consistent as well.

    I've purchased the Sam's paper also and it is a very close 2nd to the
    PPP paper at a quarter of the price.
