Hi,

I'm using Windows 7, Photoshop CS4 and a Canon iP4500 printer. I've just tried printing a couple of photos using 4" x 6" glossy photo paper in high quality with borderless printing. Both came out with white flecks all over them.

I've scanned one of the photos and uploaded it to here:

I've tried all the cleaning options under "Maintenance", but they don't seem to help.

Please can someone suggest what I need to do to stop this from happening?

Thanks,
Joe

I've just done a bit of digging and it seems that it could be a number of problems. One forum suggested that it's "several tiny dots of paper that rub off during printing, and can jam your nozzles". Another said it could be the program you're using.

If you're printing through Photoshop, try saving the picture and then printing it through MS word or something? A lot of people have said that, upon switching programs, there are significantly less white dots.

Also, printing in "High quality mode" (What ever that is...) will supposedly reduce the dots' numbers too.

Hope this helps, as I don't even have a printer! haha.

Thanks for the help, xDWolfy. I tried printing through Word and they came out fine.
