That might work, however, I'm done with canon printers. I've used them for almost 20 years, but always have to replace them every 3 years. I switched to an epson ecotank with photo black and have never looked back. They have a swapable ink waste tank and can print up to 13x19. the images look almost as good as my canon pro 9000 with 8 inks, but that ink is so expensive, i don't use the printer as often. so switch to the Epson ET-8550 13x19 or et 8500 8.5x11
Suffered very blurred printing in black only on my MG5560 and thinking about buying a new one. Tried alignments, deep clean etc. but no good. After watching Youtube about taking out printheads, using tubes and syringe with printer cleaner, running print head under hot tap etc. I simply took out ink cartridges, dabbed a cotton bud dipped in hot water on the large print head, paper towel dry and presto, perfect printing.
you only need to change the paper type settings to matte photo paper, and leave the quality to typical. Nothing else is required.
By doing this your problem will be solved without using a lot of ink each time you print
worked on my MG5753 and will work on the whole MG5 series
It may be different in your printer, but for mine I go into 'Printer Settings', then in the Printer Settings window I change Media Type to 'Matte Photo Paper', then Print Quality to 'High'. If you leave the Media Type as 'Standard', you don't get the High option in Print Quality.
