Less so on smugmug.  Until a  couple years ago one could control the downsample 
sharpening  for each image and keep it pretty much as desired.  

They dumbed it down now and use Lanczos algorithm at 20% no matter what--works 
most of the time.  They previously used  Image Magik and could control its 
parameters  including Amount, Radius, Threshold and Sigma.  The original sized 
one submitted is untouched.  If wanted to change it to a new gallery default, 
just had to rotate it and rotate it back.  If changed the gallery settings, 
only newly uploaded ones used the new gallery settings, so had to plan a bit.   
Seems foolish to eliminate this flexibility as the default was fine for most 
and could be ignored for those not wanting to bother.  Got to wonder what they 
were thinking sometimes.

Sharpen to taste is best, Mike
