Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
First question: What file type are the pictures? e.g. JPEG JPG PNG GIF TIF TIFF etc.
Some file types may not print from the Canon sofrware, or at all.
Try making sure your printer is not in Draft mode. That would make the pictures printed out lower in quality, and perhaps faded a bit also.
What Canon software exactly do you want the photos to print out from ?
