Hi all!

I normally get my D100 prints made on a Noritsu 3101 or a Frontier 390. Before I take the files to the lab, I crop and adjust each in Photoshop 6. I dont have the equipment to calibrate my monitor, so I don't mess with color profiles.

My question is how do you prepare your files for these machines? For example, if you want a 4x6, do you crop the file to exactly 4x6? Do you always set the resolution at say 300dpi or just leave it at whatever it winds up being?

I ask this because I've noticed that both the Frontier and the Noritsu like to crop my images a little more even though theyre already 4x6. Should I leave a little bleed on the image? how much?

Of course, the guys at the lab are clueless.
