The pictures look good on my screen, but come out dark and reddish when printed. I have a new Canon MG5220. I export them in Jpeg format. I also printed one straight from Photokey4, same thing.

Sounds like a calibration issue between your computer and your printer.Any time you are converting an image from a digital vi==file viewed in RGB on your monitor to a CMYK image printed on paper, calibration is critical to keeping the colors as accurate as possible.
