Hi!!
Im new in stock photography and I was shooting before not in RAW mode only in JPEG mode in Camera. Later I met with stock photography and now trying to sell my photos that Im taking. But my photo database which I took before just in JPEG I dont have in RAW.. Im afraid to send these pictures to site... What you think I must send these pictures that I took before in JPEG mode or not?

Thank you all!!!

Why shouldn't you upload JPEG? All my images are JPEG. They have to be just big enough and of course of good quality - that's it ;-)

Now Im doing RAW after that with Canon Program Im adjusting photo and making it JPEG but before I was only taking in JPEG mode. RAW have much possibilities for fixxing photograph but JPEG not have.. Because of that I have worries about that. by the way all of them in good quality.

RAW is mandatory and that's right. BUT. If you take photo correctly. JPEG's sometimes could be good, as well. When starting I was stupid and did not use RAW. Nevertheless, some of my JPEG's are bestsellers. One needs only to check all the thechnical things (noises, artefacts, etc...). So, check your JPEG's and select those which seems to be perfect in technical and artistical meaning and upload them. "Trying isn't torture", as we say in Russia.

Best of luck!

PS. But NEVER take JPEG photos in the future, anymore, if you want to make really good photos. THIS BLOG with all the comments could be useful to understand WHY?

There is no choise, in fact: RAW is mandatory. Shooting JPEG one (i) corrupts the image by strong compression (quality 8 by photoshop scale for my camera, e.g.) and (ii) losses 5 or even 6 bits for brightness depth (8 bits instead of 13 or 14) which may lead, e.g., to posterization when correcting the image contrast. Practically, 70% to 90% of information collected by sensor is lost forever and can't be recovered, anymore. As a matter of fact, shooting JPEG one allows the camera processor to perform postprocessing by unknown algorithm (which is not under ones control) and then save result with very low quality. Why???!!!

I don't even have a camera with RAW mode! So I'm bound to stick to JPEG and get it correct in just one go.
I have a blog post about post-processing JPEG images. That would work for you. It worked for me so far.

I must admit that all my photos to date have been taken in JPEG but after reading Igordabari's emphatic pro RAW comments I will now endeavour to shoot RAW also - perhaps RAW + JPEG to start with and ease myself in gently!!

Thanks Igor

All my photos are jpg. It doesn't matter how you produce the image, all that matters is the quality of the result.

I shoot in both jpeg and raw. Some photos I just upload the jpeg while others I may choice to upload raw format also, just depends on the image and how it turns out. Some I feel might sell better with raw format. Its up to you. Good Luck!

Actually I was shooting in JPEG only . but now Im shooting in JPEG and RAW because sometimes JPEG can reduce the quality of colour..

And I will use that technique for image processing thank you ..

Only JPG files, RGB, at least 3 Megapixels, saved at the maximum quality will be accepted. If accepted you can then upload a Raw file as an additional format.

If you can produce good quality images using jpeg format, it doesn't matter. But Raw format gives you a lot of flexibility on the post process. But it steals a lot of time too for sure...you are the artist, so that is absolutely your choice.

If you ask me, I always shoot in raw.

Certainly shooting in RAW mode will give you more flexibility if you are planning to make a heavy "make up" to your photos in a post-processing stage.

You can play more with the tone curves before the photographs gets posterized, for instance. But if you are not retouching your photos in post-processing or you do very little post-processing I think highest quality JPEG mode is more than fine.

Usually I shoot in RAW mode in low light conditions with high ISO, or too low / too high contrast scenarios when I know that I will need to correct things like white balance, contrast, color saturation, etc, otherwise I just simply shoot JPEG mode in highest quality if little post-processing is required.

You must also consider that RAW images use much more space in your memory card than JPEG. If you are in the field and you are limited by the Gb left in your memory card, you must administrate that space wisely or you will regret missing that perfect shot at sunset just because you memory card was full !! ;-)
