Morning all

Is it best to upload files in raw or jpeg?. So far i have only ever uploaded files in Jpeg but i know raw does produce a better picture.
Any advantages to either?

Morning, after uploading the jpeg you are given the option of uploading other formats, providing the jpeg does not differ too greatly from the original I think its a good idea to upload raw as an alternative as it gives the buyer more options to make specific changes for thier needs which may not be so simple/possible with the jpeg thus making the image more saleable. I've not been practising what I preach but intend to with future uploads for this reason. Nice shots bty

I upload in jpeg and also add the raw on most of mine. Just starting out so dont have experience with how this helps with sales. But I figure it can't hurt. :)

You can only upload in jpeg for the first instance, if accepted you can add the RAW but only if it's very similar to the jpeg and does not contain copyrighted material.

I don't upload the RAW file....this is the original of your image and is proof that the image belongs to you.

Miraclemoments is right I guess. Someone with a full size version of the photo that too in RAW can do things behind your back. But that shouldn't happen. Still....

I guess you should just upload PNG for isolated images?
