Not to hijack the thread here (perhaps this will help your case, Nick), but I've noticed that when I save an image in Irfanview after editing and resizing, the colors seem to lose their 'punch'... things are just not quite as contrasty in the saved version, even when saving at the highest possible setting, when compared to a resized version of the original photo before it is saved.

I've been using Irfanview for a long time because all I ever do is level, sharpen, and adjust brightness, contrast, and white balance in my photos, and it's done me well for a free program. But the minor yet noticeable drop in quality even when saved at the highest setting is bugging me. Time for an upgrade to PS?
