    I've snapped some pictures with my canon 20d. I was wondering what should i resize them as for printing. If i am going to print an 8x10 should i resize it in photoshop as 8x10 or bigger will that make for a better print because right now these images are huge and when i try to upload them to costco to get prints the upload fails.. :confused: this is probably a dumb question but i wont be dumb after i figure it out lol ;)

    well, you certainly don't want to reduce the resolution for printing, but cropping it to fit an 8x10 in photoshop is a good idea. It's going to get cropped somewhere, might as well do it in PS. Are you trying to send costco RAW files? I usually print up jpgs, seems to work fine, especially with smaller stuff like 8x10
