Only b&w


Recommended Posts

Have used Paint.net many years. Love the program. But lately I can't print in color.  When I chose the 'print-option' the preview and the print just comes out in b&w.
The printer HP Deskjet 4536 prints perfectly in color with other programs.

I have an HP printer and it too only prints in B&W even though it supports color. But, that's only from my desktop. On my laptop it works fine to print in color.

 

So, something's up with HP's drivers. This has nothing to do with Paint.NET.

Thanx Rick. I will continue search for solutions.

Some printers have "Black Ink Only" and "High Quality Grayscale" options in their "Advanced Opitons" screen.

 

You can access this settings screen by clicking Options->Printer Properties->Advanced. Make sure this setting is "Off".
