    Heya folks !

    I bought a new ink cartridge today and I put it in because I wanted to print some covers but I overcame with this lil' problem and I'm wondering if someone could help me?

    So to my problem.. I want my printed cover would look like this:
    [​IMG]

    But when I print it it comes out like this:
    [​IMG]

    But the size or anything like that is not my problem dont stick to them my problem is just the color of the second picture!

    I have _only_ black ink cartridge in my printer ..


    PS. the cover is just for backup purposes *cough*

    The printer could be busted or it might even be the hardware if that's possible [​IMG]

    Contrary to popular belief, even when you print in "black and white" You are still using the color cartridges.

    your problem is you have none installed.

    So are you sure there is no way I could print only in black and white?

    I still haven't solved my problem but I have tried everything I could but still without luck.

    Altho I found that if I scan some random thing it comes like it should . .

    Okay so I got it now it tries to use colors to print greyscale pictures and I dont have an option to chose "Print in greyscale - use only black cartridge" or something like that.... shiieet

    If I can do this through some program please give a link to one.

    Thanks

    I never found an answer for this but I gave up and bought a color cartridge, so please delete this topic.

    Thanks!
