I save JPEGs in the camera, make prints via a Canon 1960 and use the Elements that came with the camera to make adjustments. My question is how the order the operations toget the best prints.This is whatI do now:1. open the JPEG and re-size it to the print size.2. Set the DPI at 300 or morefor best prints. 3. View theimage at 100%and then apply sharpening. 4. Make color/contrast changes. 5. Print. Is this the best way or does changing thesequence matter?

What you are doing should work out well, I'll just add some minor comments.

This works for PS CS, not sure if it can all be done in PS Elements:
  1. open the JPEG from the camera, save it as a PSD, open the PSD. [/*]
  2. Set the DPI at 300 is good, or even 240 works well. [/*]
  3. re-size it to the desired print size, by repeatedly up-sizing 5% at a time. [/*]
  4. Make color/contrast/spotting changes. [/*]
  5. Convert image to LAB, View theimage at 100%and then apply Unsharp to the L channel, and Gaussian blur to the A/B channels, convert back to RGB [/*]
  6. Save as a new PSD copy, You never want to re-save a JPG, or re-save into your original. [/*]
  7. Print. [/*]
