I recently did a hat with an icing images to duplicate the pattern, and it changed color...I was told that it could be it was in direct light, which it wasn't, and/or the image wasn't in a graphic program, which it was in photoshop...anyone have any suggestions or solutions?

This has to do with the type of file you used together with the printer settings. If your image was created in a word type document, a pdf or a ppt or if it ever passed through that type of program, then the picture has to be treated like a document rather than a photograph or graphic. So you will want to set your printer settings when you use this type of document to high quality and standard media. If you are printing a true graphic, that was made in a graphics program or a picture from a camera, then you want to set your quality to standard and your paper type to media.

Debbie, I've been having trouble with me images going green also. I have the canon ip3600 and almost always print from Microsoft Publisher. I had the printer pref. set at Matte Photo Paper and Standard Print Quality. I just changed the Print Quality to High, but I'm not sure what to choose for the Media. I don't see Standard as a choice. Should I set it to Plain Paper?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, change it to plain paper as the paper type and the print quality to high. That will fix the problem!
