Default FAQ or help with photo printing?

Any useful info for post-processing (red-eye removal, enhance color etc) and printing to an inkjet? I can't seem to get my photos to turn out right...

Thanks,
-Pablo

It would help to know what software you're using to print from. That's often the Achilles heel. The incuded programs are often too simple and flexible programs take a while to learn. If you're using what came with your camera might be worth investing in editing software. Photoshop is the gold standard but pricey. Paintshop Pro is poor man's Photoshop and extremely flexible. Adobe Phhotoshop Elements is also worth considering. Let us know what you're using now and that will get you some better advice.

I've got Photoshop 6 and a few other "lesser" programs. Any FAQ or tutorials for post-processing/printing pictures from Photoshop?

I'm not familiar with Photoshop's tool for red eye but know Paintshop's and it's pretty straight forward.

Your question doesn't lend itself to a FAQ. In order to know how to fix your images you first need to determine what is wrong with them. Is the color balance off? Contrast? Experiment with the controls in very small increments so you get a feel for what each does.

Does the problem exist in the printer? Are you using photo quality paper? Do you have the printer's control panel in Windows configured for photo paper?

I agree with the others also on this questoin - that there is a LOT to learn and fortunately there is a LOT on the Internet to help. The key is asking the right questions. You could post stuff and get feedback as well. The link above may help with some basic questions. It may take a while to get things working right, but then it is all good fun!
