How do I lighten a monochrome picture in Safari. No control.

I paid for the driver. I have an HP 1022 running on Leopard 10.5.4. Your driver allows me to use the queue on my IMAC which HP's driver has a bug and won't queue properly running under Leopard.

First, when I use the terminal, it asks for administrator password but the prompt accepts no input. I assume that this terminal is not for Macs? What other software on the net could I need?

More importantly, in your driver, in Safari, color pictures come out in monochrome as they should be but they are a little too dark for my tastes. How do I lighten the default print density to be more like the buggy HP driver? There is no setting under a "print options" tab to darken or lighten the printout under Safari. If there is a picture of a girl in color, when printed out the background and face of the girl are not as bright as when done with the buggy HP driver.

If one needs to enter a "script" to compile every times one prints, then it is way over my head and must live with the darker image. If it is a one time fix, please explain the procedure simply, especially if I have to use that terminal.
Thank you
Stephen

No control of print density.

Rick,
I found a workaround or compensation that I wanted for the monochrome lightening effect on the HP 1022. What I do is I print a photo out using the highest resolution 1200 x 600 but I choose draft mode instead of normal. I made a preset of this called "FastRes 1200. The color picture comes out sharp but there is less darkness.
