Hi Jim,

I do see a difference.  Here's the listing of my files:

-rw-rw-r--    1 foo        227784 Feb 19 14:43 bbqmap75.jpg
-rw-rw-r--    1 foo        297166 Feb 19 14:44 bbqmap85.jpg
-rw-rw-r--    1 foo        458938 Feb 19 14:44 bbqmap95.jpg
-rw-r--r--    1 foo       1254886 Feb 19 14:42 bbqmap.jpg

after running these commands:

 1014  convert -geometry 50% -quality 75 bbqmap.jpg bbqmap75.jpg
 1016  convert -geometry 50% -quality 85 bbqmap.jpg bbqmap85.jpg
 1017  convert -geometry 50% -quality 95 bbqmap.jpg bbqmap95.jpg

Please post an example run where you see otherwise.
