Would you like to have a check to the Quality Level when you save them after all Editing ? Especially LR because if the Quality began very poor at LR it will become worse at PS. Make sure that PS Saving Quality is 12 ( the Best) and LR also Is the best. Besides, what re-size way did you use in PS ?...
