I can't seem to get a decent print quality on my HP Envy

Customer Question
Hi, I can't seem to...
Hi, I can't seem to get a decent print quality on my HP Envy 110. I get cloudy prints all the time. It's the same on my Canon pixma too. I have decent quality Canon glossy paper, and I'm trying all of the best, ***** ***** settings on my Macbook Pro. But the quality of the prints is really quite poor.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I've even downloaded a high definition image just in case it was my own images that were poor but it remains the same. A cloudy haze over the image which settles down after a while but remains cloudy nontheless.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

John, your answer only cover pretty basic stuff I have to say. I've checked software and drivers prior to asking for your help and everything is up to date. If the problem is the same on two different printers, AND I'm using OEM inks then the issue must be more linked to paper, or something. My problem is a cloudyness, a slight blueish haze on the printed images that fades a little after a while but remains nonetheless. The images lack the vibrancy and depth that I would expect from a modern inkjet printer and whatever I do in print set ups, whether within an application, say Photoshop Elements, or whether it is via the stock Mac OS print routine I get the same result. Rather limp images with this slightly cloudy haze that doesn't go away. Now, is it the paper? Is it my expectations? I recall printing stock hi-res images back as far as the late 1990's and getting crisp, vivid results on pretty standard paper. I really don't get it.
Technician: John, Computer Science Engineer replied 1 year ago

It may be the quality of the printers, or the drivers are not fully compatible with your Mac. I would try to print from a PC and see if you get better results, if you do, then the Mac drivers for your printers are not good. Is it possible for you to do this test?

Thanks,

John
