    When I try to print a webpage with photos, the photos don't print. I have
    selected the "Print background colors and images" option; backgrounds and
    some GIF images print, but not photos. Any suggestions?

    I'm using a Dell color laser printer model 1320c, but I have the same
    problem with my Lexmark inkjet.

    I have all the updates for both IE7 and Windows XP installed.

    First try (probably won't help) clearing the Temporary Internet Files.

    Start IE without add-ons from:
    Right-click the IE icon on the desktop. Choose Start without add-ons.
    Programs> Accessories> System tools> Internet Explorer (no add-ons)
    If the problem goes away, an add-on is causing it.

    For troubleshooting information see:

    Hi Don! I triel all of your suggestions but unfortunately none of them work.
    One thing that does work for me (sort of) is to convert the webpage to a PDF
    file and then print that. However, for some reason not all of the content
    ends up in the PDF file. I'm thinking that it might have something to do with
    the way the page is laid out (I don't believe it uses frames; the printing
    options referring to them are greyed out). I tried other sites and the
    problem doesn't occur. Here's the problem site (it's a volunteer group that I
    belong to):

    Unfortunately I don't know enough about HTML and web design to know whether
    that's causing the problem, but since (so far) it's the only site that does I
    think I've at least found the problem source.

    Thanks for your effort! I'll fiddle around

    Sorry, I'm not sure what's going on with that page. The only other
    possibility that comes to mind is to try a print size other than "shrink to
    fit" from the Print Preview window- maybe 90%.
