I am a new user of Photoshop Elements 8 and have recently purchased an HP Photosmart B8550 printer. Photos I have printed do not match the colors on my monitor. Does anyone know of any settings I need to change or anything I need to buy to make the correct connections?

Go to Edit>Color settings.
Check photoshop elements set.
Try setting it to "No color management" and see if you get better results.

Bear in mind you are going from one media to another ie. screen to paper. The two have different colour properties and luminance so it can be difficult to match exactly.

I would really look at something like the colormunki photo that can calibrate your monitor and profile your paper. This will make sure you always what you see on the screen no matter what paper or ink set you are using. I purchased mine from the guys at dtgweb.com They have a video on youtube about it. I'll include the link. Cheers

What monitor are you using? Is it calibrated?

The printing Ink and the RGB color on your monitor are not one in the same. Use a tint guide for reference.
