Using my Dell 720 jet printer I want to reproduce a B@W hardcopy of a digital B&W photo (photo.jpg) that I can use as a template over which I will apply water color (or oil) paints. How can I best “detune” the printer (or the digital image itself) such that I get a faint copy of the original image? Thanks.

Not sure how you would go about what you are asking but have you thought about using a free photo editing software, there are many available and here is an example http://www.wnsoft.com/pixbuilder/

Phillpower2: Many, many thanks. PixbuilderStudio looks like what I want. Much better (at first look) than Kodak EasyShare. I have downloaded it and have resolved to use it and really learn it.
