    My mom wants a few of my prints to hang up (11x14 or a little bigger)

    What do you use? And do they apply color correction for printing?

    also, how big can I upsize and still have them look good (shooting with an xti, native is 10.8"x16.2" at 240 ppi)

    I print in house

    but if I must, in order:
    WHCC
    Millers
    Mpix
    Costco
    El Co Labs


    usually they give you the choice of CC or not.

    Thanks, WHCC looks like a good choice.

    Im pretty new to the whole printing photos thing, I know when I had a few done at kinko's (which didn't turn out that great) they said they printed at 200 PPI (which means I could upsize my images by 1.2 and get the same quality) I didn't see in any of the literature on WHCC about what size the files should be for certain size prints?

    depends on viewing distance. you could make it a billboard size image if you wanted (and I've done), as proper viewing distance is 25+ yards away.

    no one will be staring at it up close (other than me :hs: )

    but probably anywhere between 5-15 feet
