Photo Printing

Printing of digital photos can be very frustrating.  Tonight I have spent a good hour plus about 10 sheets of 4×6 photo paper attempting to print a photo and the black is coming out purple.  I have been researching online why this is and it is down to the paper type (HP Glossy) or the print cartridges (Canon) or some setting in the print control panel.

If technology is to work the way it is suppose to then why doesn’t it just work!
