SELPHY CP1300 Skin Color poor




I bought a CP 1300 Selphy printer and noticed skin color management is really poor. More often than not it prints too pale and nothing like the photos. Weirdly, Ive noticed it cant seem to get color correct for pavements on a sunny day, there is a definite yellowing when compared to the original photos.


Other than that its a brillant little printer but is really pointless if it cant manage printing people in photos for me.


Has anyone else experienced this?

we have similar problem with the CP 1300 print colour. We are printing via phone with android. 

Do you know what could be the issue?

Thank you for your answer. 


Are you printing from the Canon print app or using the Print plugin and printing directly from your photos?
