Okay! Last week, I posted a question. "Can I dillute the regular color ink with water, and make photo ink, for a photo printer?"
Many of you didn't know an answer or just said NO, it can't be done.
The results are in! The picture below shows a BEFORE and AFTER color test-print. I waited until the original photo cartridge was empty. Then I filled it with my mixture, cleaned the nozzles 6 times with the cleaning cycle, then printed 8 full sized photos, to ensure that the original ink was replaced with the new ink in the cartridge tanks.

I used special ink designed for Lexmark color printers.
Light Magenta = 30% regular magenta and 60% distilled water
Light Cyan = 10% regular cyan and 90% distilled water
Mixing formula may vary, depending on the brand of ink and printer that you have
