try clicking the settings tab and then if you scroll down and see a setting called "blurry and messed up" with a check next to it. you should click it again as to uncheck it

Why are you trying to print the newsletter in picture formats? What program did you use to create the newsletter? Word or MS Publisher.

Sounds like the pictures themselves are goofy.

Or....a problem that I just had for the first time this week.....did you use a program to convert PDF to a MS word (doc) file? That blurred every image in the document.

Yes converting from pdf to another program like word is a mess without good software. Also the truncation on letters is fun too.

Agreed - more information, and I could probably help you. What program to make the newsletter? What kind of printer?

I do this stuff for a living, so I should be able to come up with something...
