Printing
Hello. I downloaded GIMP today but when I print it always prints in black and white and not colour. Any ideas? My Epson has a tick box for use greyscale which I make sure is not ticked...but it still prints in black and white.

Any help would be much appreciated as I have no experience with this sort of program.

What kind of image are your printing? Is you image RGB or indexed?

RE: Printing
No idea then. I assume the image prints OK if using any other utility?

RE: Printing
Yes. Anythink printed on say Paint or Windows Photo Gallery prints fine! My friend has created the picture for me. Should he save it as somethiong else? I guess he is using Photoshop, what would be the best format to save in?

This is wierd!

RE: Printing
Did you try to print the picture through Paint or the Photo Gallery? Printing has never been Gimp's strongest point (but that the first time I hear about monochrome printing...)
