I often use the crop function in Lightroom, but now is the first time when these crops have been crucial to me as I don't usually send to print. The problem is that when I crop to say 8x6 in lightroom it never actually is 8x6. I'll open in photoshop and it'll be 11.64x8.73 inches. Why is this? What am I doing wrong and how can I ensure that when I crop to 8x6 it actually is 8x6?

I'm trying to get some photos printed for a friend for his birthday, but I need to get this sorted.

Also, does anyone kno any high quality printers in the UK? I've heard good things about Pro-am imaging, but I registered with them but have found their website to be so badly designed and difficult to understand that I can't be bothered with them. Plus a min of £6 just for sending by regular first class post - What is that about?!!! Their profile download doesn't even work either.
