Well, I'll see what I get, but some of these things are going to be 
peculiar for your own setup. So I gather that even if you print the one 
that's not washed out it comes out washed out?
I have had times when, with certain settings, the colors came out more 
vivid than I thought was natural, and ended up printing a more "washed 
out" version. Also, the type of paper makes a difference, as well as the 
settings for printer properties. These days there are many variables 
which come into play for the final printed on paper output.
