Printing jpeg images

Not too sure if this is the right section to post in.

I use CorelDraw X4. When I use a combination of vector and jpg files in a design, I export to eps and print via VersaWorks. The jpg part of the design always looks washed out and dull. If I print the jpg direct from VersaWorks, it's fine.
Any suggestions on how to resolve this would be appreciated.

convert the whole lot to a 300dpi bitmap before sending it to the printer - generally works well.

The washed out image is probable rgb, ensure everything is CMYK and if your colour management is set up correctly and you have a half decent monitor what comes of the printer should be sililar to what you see on screen.

Thanks all for the quick feed back. I'll have a play this evening and see what results I get.
