Okay, I retweaked the histogram of each image in Photoshop.... recalibrated my monitor as best as I am able to... and reloaded thumnails and full-size images to the website. Not all of the thumbnails took but, the full-size images did.
To me, the site looks better. I don't have to adjust the brightness level when going back and forth between my site and other sites. Just wondering if it looks better to apugers.
