What do the printer dialog boxes show when you go to set options
before printing? My printer has a huge selection of options. If you
pick the wrong one you get unexpected results. I'm assuming HP
printers do the same thing.
For example if I click on print from Photo Galley, then print again
from the little windows that opens I get choices to change quality and
paper type. In addition at the bottom if I click on options Photo
Galley shows a printer properties option which if I click on it brings
up the Canon printer dialog which presents a wealth of other options
to specifically change just about anything.
So what I'm suggesting is you may have an option to print at higher
DPI using some more advanced features of your printer, but you may
have to drill down in some dialog or choice boxes to set it up before
it gets used. It sounds like Photo Galley is just defaulting to some
This is one of those gray areas. It could be my Canon printer driver
just supports more features and interacts better than you HP. Without
having you make/model printer I can't tell.
Can you try printing from another application? Trying to print from
Photo Gallery may be inhibiting some of the more advanced options you
printer may support.
