Hi all. Recently i have been printing some photos at home. Just some casual printing.

However I noticed that my photos always tend to a yellowish hue. This is more apparent especially with photos like night shots that have lots of blacks.

Printer Model: Canon MP520 (with standard canon ink cartridges)
Paper: Canon Photo Paper Plus Glossy

I notice that when the printouts are fresh out from the printer the colors are very accurate. However, after a few seconds and the ink dries, the photo will have the yellowish hue.

I have checked my print settings quite throughly and i do not think it is due to monitor-printer color sync issue as even scans of photos have the correct color in my monitor when compared side by side to the original.

Having trouble finding info from google, I want to ask if any fellow CS-ers have similar experience with such printing and if so help point out what is the issue here?

Am I:

Using wrong paper?
Using wrong printer? (and should just live with it)
Using lousy ink?

I want to emphasize the fact that colors on the printout is accurate UNTIL the ink dries a few seconds later...

I think its the paper. Try different brands to find the one that suits you. I printed a whole lot of A4s on my Canon MP in Japan they sort of look different now, blue yellowish.
