    Strange print with red eyes


    I'm trying to print a photo ; scan is OK, but printer add red eyes and hair, as you can see here :

    I use maverick, a hp photosmard C5180 and different free softwares to print (gimp, okular...). Can you help me, or do you know who can help me ?

    Thanks you !

    Best regards,

    This is just a guess but I think that you need to match the colour settings on the printer with the colour settings in the image program and perhaps the scanner program. How you do that I do not know. But I do know that a monitor uses a different method to display colours than a printer does. The monitor is emitting light. The printed image is absorbing and reflecting light. The two methods use different colour combinations to produce the colours we see.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
