so far, my prints are very grainy (sp?)...any idea as to why? I have only printed photos that were taken with my iPhone so far and have not edited them at all {ie: cropping/color/etc}. Any chance it may be an easy fix by adjusting the settings on my printer? I really dont want to use up all of my paper/ink trying to figure it out and would appreciate any/all help. TIA!!!



Yep...I pin!!!

My guess is that it would be the photo - not the printer. I find I have to print pictures from my iPhone small to get good quality.

My pics turn out great! I haven't had any problems and I print from my iPhone. I don't have to print mine small at all.

I have the 800, but with phone pics that are not taken in VERY well-lite areas, I fin they must be edited to some degree to get a full 4x6 print. It's the phone print most likely, not the printer. What model phone do you have? My sis has a newer iPod and all her pics are very grainy.

Thanks so much, ladies! I have an iPhone 4S and two of the photos were taken outdoors in very good lighting...are there settings on the printer for color and such that I am not aware of? And I have not tried printing smaller pics, so will do that first chance I get.

Thanks again!!!

I think it's the resolution of the iPhone photos. For me, my pics taken with my iPhone look okay but my pics taken with hubby's dslr camera are awesome quality.
