I'm trying to get together my images for printing the test images at the lab and I don't know if I need to sharpen for print or not. Does anyone here do that? Is it easier than the google search results I found?
Seriously, it'll take me 2 days to google each of the terms/steps that I find listed in the "how to sharpen for print" tutorials I see. Maybe I should youtube search it.
Or is this something I need to do at all?
I don't usually, mainly because I've found that trying to sharpen full-size files doesn't do much at all most of the time. Anyone else?

I don't sharpen for print. If I do, it would be subtle - I would unsharp mask then do 75, 2, 3.

I do. I run MCP's action for print sharpening. I was finding that 8x10 and larger prints were coming back softer than they should. So now I always sharpen for print.
