upload image darkens the picture

Hi

When I upload an image using DA 'file manipulation | upload file', the images upload (and are resized successfully, where appropriate).

However, on comparing the uploaded image with the original, the uploaded version is darker (as are all the resized thumbnails)

As I'm trying to develop a photography site, this is quite important!

So, as a test, I uploaded the image using Dreamweaver, and that version is unchanged.

To compare the two, please see:

Original, correct, version uploaded using Dreamweaver ftp: http://sweens.uk/lr/Ang022.jpg

darker version, uploaded using DA file upload: http://sweens.uk/img/mainpics/Ang022.jpg

Be grateful if anyone can make any suggestions.

Cheers
Chris

There may be a quality setting for .jpeg images that you can adjust.

Can I get ftp access to look at your page and see if that might be the problem?

I can't seem to connect with that ftp information. Please verify there are no typos and I can try again.

What browser are you using? Are you cutting and pasting the credentials from the post? Maybe you have IP blocking in place? I can't get to the ftp address with my browser at all to even enter ftp credentials.

Try chaging line 1100 in the file: webassist/file_manipulation/helperphp.php

from:
imagejpeg($tmp,$endServerPath);

to:
imagejpeg($tmp,$endServerPath,100);

See if that makes a difference and let me know.
