I read (on the internet ) that sRGB would be better since everything will be sRGB anyways ... Exporting for web and cheaper prints are said to be sRGB. I admit I mostly print at costco ... Should I export sRGB or aRGB >

You can get very good printing from Costco, if you use it "properly".

  1. Costco uses mostly Noritsu 3400 or 3700 series printers and some Fuji Frontier printers.
  2. Costco mostly uses Fuji Crystal paper that is rated for 60 years archival.
  3. Costco also uses Epson 7800 with 8-color Epson UltraChrome K3TM inks for their poster size prints.

You will need get the right printer profile. They are available at: http://www.drycreekphoto.com/icc/ . The profile is specific to each store. Select your location and download the right one. Some stores have multiple printers with different profiles. You must match the right printer profile. The profiles are dated and usually updated every 6 month.

The print size determines which printer your images will be printed on. Only 16 by 20 and larger prints use the Epson printers, except for the panoramic 12 by 36. Get the Epson Satin paper profiles for images printed on "lustre" paper for the Epson 7800. All the other print sizes should use either the Noritsu or Fuji Frontier printer profiles.
