Pete -

I wrote " If your Smugmug images are a larger size than their DPR versions, the compression caused by transferring to DPR will degrade image "

Does that help explain it?

I know that the images I've posted to my own DPR gallery are less detailed and less sharp than they are on my monitor or on pbase gallery, even when I (think I have) sized them and sharpened them specifically for the DPR gallery. I don't mean to criticize DPR galleries - they're fine - but maybe we should not expect them to be "lossless", especially when we're transferring from another photo sharing site.
