My security department has a fargo direct to card 550 ID printer.  Students with a dark complexion print out very dark.  On the computer screen the photo looks fine but printint out on the photo printer its almost a silhouette.  

In the manual it reccomends adjusting the dye-sub intensity.  I did this but it makes the entire ID card looked washed out and does not fix the dark image problem.

I just installed the latest driver and have 2 printers.  I tested both of them and they are both dark.
