I am converting a number of my older projects from Director to Rev. To

notice that they are noticeably darker than the original art.

Bill, have you tried setting the gamma correction value of your PNG images in
Graphic Converter?

The standard setting for Mac OS 9 is 1.8, and for Windows it's 2.2. Many
graphic artists set their images to 2.0--right between the two standard

An advantage to using gamma correction is that, once it's set to your liking,
your images should display almost identically across platforms.
