    If the photo comes out wrong when printing but looks right on the screen then there's a missmatch between the colour profile of the screen and the printer. I can not help you further here, but I believe your technique for conversion may be correct and your software may need adjusting. But I can't tell that for certain.

    Possible problems that come to mind.

    mismatch of color profile
    printer itself might not be able to reproduce a true black
    Software itself might not be doing the job correctly (sorry not familiar with the software you are using)
