I have an iP4200 and am generally delighted with its performance.

I have noticed that the pigment black seems to be used at 600 dpi in dithering darker areas on photo prints. In some cases the effect is noticeable and not attractive. Under a loupe, the black dots look quite crude over the fine pattern behind.

Is it possible to turn this off during photo printing?

Thanks

On what brand of paper do you see this? My first pack of photo paper was Lexmark Premium, and I also saw the black dots on dark areas. At first I thought it was the printer that was messed up, but when I printed the same photo on Canon Photo Paper plus and Photo Paper Pro it was perfect.

Seems the Canon is very picky with photo paper
