Just a guess here, but is the image saved at 72ppi? (might be called dpi in

You're right on the money -- the BMP was set to 200DPI but displayed
correctly on the Windows boxes, but saving the same image as a PCT didn't
hence my plea for help!
Down sampling the document size DPI [but then re-entering the pixel
dimensions to their original values as Photoshop wished to change the whole
document par se] cured the problem! To air on the side of caution I've also
re-saved the BMP at 72DPI just in case.
How bizarre, I would never ever have thought the embedded DPI tag would've
had such an adverse affect on screen rendering!!
Many thanks once again... ;-)

Yea, I first ran into that when I was a video editor. Some of our clients
always gave us images for videos that their print publishers used. They
invariably gave us high res, high dpi, CMYK images in PICT or TIFF formats.
In those days, PhotoShop wasn't very good at converting CMYK to RGB.

Glad it helped.
