I'm starting to get some shoots lined up and I need pro-quality prints. So I was became a member of Bay Photo Labs and I'm gonna test them out with some family shots I had taken.

On their site, I have the choice between "Full Color Correction" and No color correction prints. The difference between them (lets take 8x10 for example) is $1.71 USD. Of course it varies by the size of the print. I'd save (make) more money by going with the latter...but I don't know if I need it. I'm very experienced with photo editing, correcting, etc. So I know how and I used some software monitor calibration...but I'm still not sure. Help me out please.

Hi RHDxSPAWNx, sorry no one got back to you sooner. Do you have the answer?

I think it all depends on the printer and their software - so you'd need to ask the store what it means, especially if you already perform colour management yourself.

Maybe you could do one of each to compare? If it's a consumery lab, I'd suspect colour correction may be more like 'colour enhancement'...
