First i tryed a EPSON and print some photos, and they look awesome...

but with the Canon MP500 its like all the photos got a blue layer all over the picture? and i look wired...

i tryed with this picture

With the EPSON i looks like it the picture you see on the Screen
But with the Canon its like he got a dark blue face, the sowrd and shield blue, the cloth very dark, also the pants is kind of blue?

I tryed to change the settings before print, but i cant find the right settings to print like the EPSON i tryed

There are a couple possibilities.

First: what paper stock are you using? This makes a difference as they are not all chemically the same. I have an older Canon printer and it is not very tolerant of non-canon paper stock (although I've been using paper from red river paper and that has worked famously). So, that could potentially be an issue.

Second, how are the images being sent to the printer? from card or from your PC? This again speaks to the type of paper being used and the color profile the computer is using.There are others on this forum more knowledgeable with how printers handle color profiles and such. But, the paper stock is a good place to start.
