Does the picture quality also depend on what...

photo paper you print it out of? Because I printed the pictures with the same setting set, and this one picture looks different than the one I took even though it's on the same setting.

Picture Quality

The brand of paper makes a difference.
The finish on the paper (glossy, simi-glossy, mat, silk, etc) makes a difference.

In most cases......using the paper recommended by the printer manufacturer will produce the best photos for that particular printer.

your printer nozzle might need cleaning. I've had that problem once. Best suggestion would be to have it printed professionally. Bunch of sites now offer reproductions at really cheap prices. Their paper, ink and printing process will make the picture last longer. You'll notice within 1 to 2 years, your self printed photos will fade if it's kept out in the open but not so much if it's not exposed to air.
