You need a ratio of 3:2 for the photos to be developed. I advise you leaving your photos un-resized, then cropped to the ratio and send to the lab :)

3:2 is for 4R shots. I've sent 3:2 to labs for 12" x 18" enlargements and they had no problems. I guess 3:2 is fine.

make ur size the maximum possible. The more pixels the better. They will fit it in. But it has to be in the correct ratio.

Actually you don't really have to crop to ratio if you don't mind having two white borders at the sides of your photos. :)

'strongly agree on the above, I have few hundreds of digital pics developed to photolab and they all cropped to 3:2 or 2:3 nothing more, nothing less. what you see on screen is what you see once developed. :thumbsup:
