Since my Epson printer went belly up I'm starting to work out a procedure for preparing photos to send out for printing. I downloaded the ICC profiles for my local Costco so have those. I use CNX2 and/or LR4 for PP with improving (nothing is ever perfect) results. What I need now is a reliable procedure to prepare photos for sending out for printing.

I have sent a few out for printing but they were just existing jpegs. I tend to crop a lot so would need some help there to understand how to request the proper sizing. I use the standard sizes offered on the Costco website for formatting but usually have to re-crop to fit their formats.

Does anyone have a procedure they use that they will share? Something I could use as a template for developing my own workflow? It would be helpful if the procedure starts after PP has been done and the photo is ready for the print prep procedure.
