I give the shop edited pictures, but a different edit (besides the size being bigger) as the one I send to A.net. I do almost no sharpening, just a little USM
. And I adjust the levels to my taste. Don't do anything with the saturation though. Prints are much more colourful than a computer screen I found.
Regarding DPI's and image size, you don't really need to bother. The printing machine in the printing lab will deal with that. Don't resize, just crop. Leave it in the original pixels.
My prints on 8x12" turned out very nice. I like them more than some slides I had printed.
