I would usually place the unsharpened (just scanned) original in the layout, sizing and cropping to suit.

Then once the client had approved the layout, I would go into Photoshop, match the percentage size, crop to match the printout, do whatever I could with the images including unsharp mask, and then swap them for the originals.

But because I was never a great retoucher, I would also supply the original images to the printer; if there was a problem, he could fix them.
