Why when I upload images to purestorm does it degrade the quality of my images, I resize and keep them within the upload specifications but as soon as they are uploaded the image becomes flat, there is colour loss and highlights seem lost.....can anyone explain.....when I upload images on other sites they seem fine and only encounter this problem here.....purestorm is a great site but this issue frustrates me....

Purestorm does not degrade image quality but it does downsize larger images as per below.

If your image is over 6MB in size it is unlikely to upload and will error. Please resize your image to the dimensions specified in the green text below.
If your image has a width of 895px or less and a height of 760px or less then no image compression will take place

Convert your images to sRGB (rather than Adobe/ProPhoto) prior to upload.
When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All of your pain is felt by others. The same thing happens when you are stupid.

Post a link to another site where you have a photo so that we can see the difference
Like any dealer he was watching for the card that is so high and wild he'll never need to deal another...

Adobe and pro photo are incorrect use for web authoring
try again - you are  doing it wrong - you could always try the 'save for web' option in photoshop that sorts it out for you.
