Just got a Pro 100 off Craiglist, factory sealed, never used. Setup, all nozzle check, alignment print great. HQ Photo prints on plain paper looks fine. Printer came with Canon Luster and Photo Pro Plus Semi-glossy. Prints from two different machines, both from Photoshop and Canon Print App look terrible - blotchy, wet, low rez like tiny highly compressed file.
I triple check paper settings, etc. I can't see how if print head or cartidges were messed up that plain paper would be fine but other papers bad. But these are Canon paper bundled with printer using Canon profiles.
Windows 7 64, latest driver and apps from Canon website.

One possibilkity is that you are printing on the wrong side of the paper. It is difficult to tell the correct side. Wet a finger and touch a corner of the paper; the print side will feel tacky.
For a good resource on printing with the PRO-100:
Google "jtoolman youtube pro-100"

Yes and in my original post I tried just using the bundled Easy Print Canon app or whatever it's called EX or EZ photo print. Same result as Photoshop. Again, plain paper output looks good (other than limits of photo on plain paper).

Give canon support a call then. I have always found them helpful. 1-800-OK-CANON.
