    Hi
    I would like to print this image at 120x90 cm. How do I sharpen it? I see to many options on line, I am confused! Should I resize before sharpening and saving for print? What save option should I use: save as JPEG or export and then chose JPEG?

    Resize first, then sharpen, I use NIK it asks you for the pixel dimensions and sharpens for those.

    After sharpening I export as a jpeg with the correct colour profile applied for the print

    That depends on the lab, some make their printer profiles available so you can do the colour management yourself. If this is the case you need to download the correct profile from the labs website and save it into the printer profiles is PS, can't remember how , but the labs website will have instructions

    Other lanbs do the colour management for you, if this the case then I believe SRGB will be ok. (I've only ever done my own colour management )

    Either way when you have your image sharpened and ready to export you you'd go to edit the Edit profile then select the correct one from the list
