    This might be a newb question, but there's something wrong with my developed pictures.

    I've taken some photos with my digital camera and edited them in photoshop to make them in 4x6 ratio in terms of pixels. I get them developed and find that the developed pictures, when compared to the edited to 4x6 ratio pictures, have been cropped slightly on all sides. I can't tell if they've been cropped the same amount on all sides, but i definitely notice the crop.

    The 4x6 photos have been developed at Costco as well as BestBuy. This has also happened on 8x10 that were developed.

    What am I doing wrong? Or is there even anything wrong with my procedure?

    You arent doing anything wrong. The machines they use magnify the image slightly to make sure you don't get white edges because of paper shift. This is from mpix and explains it better than I could.

    If you are using Costco's online photo system you can do all your cropping on their website. Try using that its works great and appears to be WYSIWYG
