use software to crop it to the right aspect ratio first if you don't want it "crop". the shop has to fit your picture to 8"x10".

Hi mpenza, thanks for the reply. But does it has to be cropped to exactly 1800 px by 1200 px. Can i cropped it bigger or smaller?

If i got a 3000px by 2000px image, how should i process it to get the correct 8R and 4R prints.

Whenever you send prints to the shop. If you have not cropped your photos to ratio, it is important to instruct the lab about how you want your picture done.

not sure if some of u have encounter this prob which i have..
that is when i send for printing at the lab.. the photos seemed to have "plastiky'' effect, which is very different from what i see on my monitor when i was processing in PS CS. It appears to be sharp and able to see fine details but not when after i've developed it..
i usually use 6 x 4 @ 300ppi; Quality: 10; Progressive Scans: 3.
can anybody share some insights to this?? really appreciate it..

i think the lab machine prob couldn't interpret the progressive scan part. in any case there isn't a need to use progressive scan compression/encoding when printing.. since you don't need a progressive "preview" on the fly.
try baseline only and see how it goes.
