No, this wasn't the problem. I tried everything - without success. OK, the
difference is not very big, but the image appeares (in my opinion)
sharper. You see this, if you double the size of the pictures. The
difference is not big, but I am working now at printing postcards. Maybe I
am a bit paranoid (it is really warm outside - time to go to the open air 
bath). I put three samples (the names should be self explaining) on our
ftp server:

file /pub/wedemann/colqcampics.tar.gz

This is a bit strange but our firewall is quite restrictive. It is only
there today and tomorrow because the pictures are too nice.
