Abstract: Letting $ \pi:X\rightarrow Y$ be a one-block factor map and $ \Phi$ be an almost-additive potential function on $ X,$ we prove that if $ \pi$ has diamond, then the pressure $ P(X,\Phi)$ is strictly larger than $ P(Y,\pi\Phi)$. Furthermore, if we define the ratio $ \rho(\Phi)=P(X,\Phi)/P(Y,\pi\Phi)$, then $ \rho(\Phi)>1$ and it can be proved that there exists a family of pairs $ \left\{ (\pi_{i},X_{i})\right\} _{i=1}^{k}$ such that $ \pi_{i}:X_{i} \rightarrow Y$ is a factor map between $ X_{i}$ and $ Y$, $ X_{i}\subseteq X$ is a subshift of finite type such that $ \rho(\pi_{i},\Phi\vert _{X_{i}})$ (the ratio of the pressure function for $ P(X_{i},\Phi \vert _{X_{i}})$ and $ P(Y,\pi\Phi)$) is dense in $ [1,\rho(\Phi)]$. This extends the result of Quas and Trow for the entropy case.
