Hi Tino,

The print shop allows optional automatic correction. I don't know yet
which option I will choose. I did not calibrated my screen (I don't have
any device to do so, and I don't know anyone who has one), and the last
time I ordered some prints (years ago), the non-automatically corrected
photos (I tried both) appeared too dark.
They provide an ICC profile, but I know about nothing about color
calibration and things like that, I'm just a basic user. My goal is just
to have a decent result.

Well, the online print shop only accepts image files (it's more a
general public site than a shop for professionals), so I would like to
do like if I were ordering my original photos.

Thank you for your answers to both of you,
