This does not occur with Menalto's Gallery so can only assume it isvbgallery at fault.
Getting a wee bit tiresome this problem now.
Am I the only person suffering with this problem??
Clothahump, if you're seeing the same results.... are these with images that have EXIF info in them or don't have them? You should see a decrease in thumbnail size for images that have EXIF in them and when using IM. Also, remember that your existing thunbnails would still be the size they were before unless you rebuilt them.
If you want to see the before & after... find an image with EXIF, upload it, note the size the thumbnail, then do the edit (or remove if you already did the patch), then upload the same image again and compare the thumbnails. On my test site with IM I was seeing a difference of a few K between the thumbs.
