I just got a new Canon Pixma Pro-100, which came with a few sheets of luster paper. I calibrated the printer, and printed 2 sheets looking sharp. Then, I printed one photo... it came out pretty good: not amazing, but ok, and pretty sharp.
After that things just started going south, as each photo I printed after that would just get a smudged-looking wet paint look, with blended ink. I mean, it just looks bad and freaky looking.
The ink is very wet on the sheet, and it just keeps blending in.
I tried printing from Adobe Illustrator, and Mac Preview, with the same result.
