Why do my color photos come out blotchy?

I have the canon mg2100 series printer and i bought it to print photos and they come out looking horrible, blotchy and not fine at all.

Any suggestions?

Hi tribite4!

 

So that the Community can help you better, we will need to know the Computer Operating System you're using (Windows XP/Vista/7/8 or Mac 10.x), the type and brand of photo paper you're using, as well as the photo editing/printing software you're using. Any other details you'd like to give will only help the Community better understand your issue! Thanks and have a great day!

I just bought a printer and printed out from my phone, they are horrible, runny and blotchy. I used the paper they gave with the printer. I am using Mac Os

Hello.

 

Make sure that the correct side of the paper is being used to print.  In most cases, only one side of photo paper is able to soak in ink properly.
