Grayscale image displays in gray, prints in color
I have an image that has elements pasted in from PNG files, and those elements have some shades of green. I want printed output in gray scale only, so I did Image -> Mode->Grayscale. The image on screen went gray as I wanted. When I print it, however, I get an image in which *some* of the colored parts still are colored!

What is happening?

Your printer maybe using some of the colored ink to print. Especially if your blank ink levels are low.
