    Send JPG. There is no difference in printing from a low compression JPG or TIFF. Believe me, I've seen 8x10" output from the Fuji Frontier (that most Fuji labs use for digital printing), in BMP, TIFF, JPG and they all looked no different from each other. Save some bandwidth.

    1600x1200 can print a pretty good 8R, and a very good 5R. 2048x1536 can print a very good 8R.

    If your camera takes 1600x1200 pics, it would be better to send in 1600x1067 for 4R and 1500x1200 for 8R to keep the ratio correct.

    For more pixels, crop accordingly to keep the correct ratio.
