Huge Color shifts in Print Package--due to image size only

Am using Print to File on the Print Mode, as I use the lab for some prints. This issue has to do with changing color strictly due to reproduction size.

Basically, while the screen preview looks fine, there’s a huge ugly color shift on the saved file with different sizes of the same image, even on the exact same sheet. The color shift is almost like when you output to Adobe RGB, and the printer uses sRGB, and doesn’t convert.

The screen proof looks perfect—all the images have identical color. But as soon as I save to file, all on the same sheet, the bigger images have the ugly color shift.

I use sRGB, and tried both perceptual and relative intent, and both come out the same. As far I know, this is the only thing that changes colors.

Attached is the sample Print to File image, and a screen shot of what I see on screen. As you can see, all the images are fine, same color but as soon as the image is slightly larger, the color shifts.

Is there a fix or setting to fix this? Or did I come across another major bug?

Many thanks,

compare to RGB, sRGB is having less color information.
Connect to the photo size, is may occur that this lack of information (sRGB) have a bad influence on the prints
