PNG additional Format submission question

Do you have to wait for the jpeg file to be accepted before you upload an additonal format?

Because I have uploaded most all my jpegs and then added my addtional format while in pending, but once accepted, my additional format is not added in my profile. Do I need to go back and add all these again? I have like 20 or more that are not showing PNG file.

When I click on my image in my profile and click on edit it just says additional format pending. What should I do?

I have a few that are showing the PNG file but those are some that I added PNG file days or weeks after jpeg was accepted.

Thanks,
Susan

Hi Susan,
It usually takes about 3 to 4 weeks for additional formats to be accepted, after image is approved.
My last one took 3 weeks.

Thanks Debspoons. Do you upload them right after you upload jpeg, or do you wait until jpeg file is accepted?

I went ahead and resubmitted the additional format earlier. Just incase there was a problem with submitting before the jpeg was accepted. :)

Well, I usually wait until the image is approved and then I go in and submit a (eps) additional format. I never had much luck for uploading them both at the same time.
That way if the image is rejected, I do not waste time worrying about the extra format.
Even if you happen to have a buyer that wanted an additional format right away, it is listed as a pending and DT probably would go ahead and review and approve it.

It is a little bit of a pain to do it later, but I keep a list and check off my images as they are approved and submitted the extra format..... it is check off.

You don't need to wait for the jpeg to be approved. I almost always upload png's. If you use ftp upload, just dump the file with the same name of jpeg, in the "additional" folder.

If you use the web site, you can click "edit" in the pending files section and upload it using the "additional format" box.

I hope it helps...

Just a question.....png format

I have used eps (vector) and raw (nef) for photos..but I have not uploaded an extra format for just a jpeg. Is this for a jpeg?

I have never uploaded a png format...What type of image are you using? Can I use this format for my Corel painter images?

Is png considered a raster?

PNG is another image format like .jpeg. Yes it's a raster format, too. It's advantage is, first of all, it have the alpha channel, in other words "transparency". This means that, you don't have to put a white background to your image. If a buyer gets the png format, then he/she have an already isolated image. Other than transparency, png is able to contain 16 bit color. Compairing to jpeg's 8 bit, it's a good think if buyer needs to tweak the image.

These are what I know about .png. If there is more or if some of these informations are wrong, I'll be happy to be corrected. You can also check this link for much further information :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_Network_Graphics

Sİnce it's a raster format, (I think...) if you save your illustrations, you will have to set a resolution, which means they won't be vector anymore. But I'm not perfectly sure about this one, because you know I'm not an illustrator :))

You always have to upload the .jpeg format first, then you can upload either Raw or .png as an additional format. But you can't upload 2 additional formats for an image.

Well what you should do is, wait for the JPEG to be online. After that upload the PNG as additional format. That's the lowest priority review so all additional files take a couple weeks to be accepted.

No, not that. I mean let the illustrations be accepted and then upload PNG. PNG is quite big sometimes...not use risking it. ;)
Who knows whether the illustration would even be accepted? I've uploaded additional formats before and have had the whole group rejected. Lol
PNG takes weeks for approval anyway. So maybe keep that in a separate folder and upload as the JPEGs are accepted? If you're sure they're going to be accepted then that's fine.

@Robinstockphotos: Your photos are really nice and very good. You will have no problem getting lots of sales.

@Parkinsonsniper: Thanks for taking the time to explain..I am going to see if I can save one of my illustrations, that is not a vector, and save as a png, and see what happens.

I see that you have a few of your photos as an option for png..

@debspoon, I generally try to upload the transparent png format. It's not an extra effort. My suggestion for you is not to upload a png format for an illustration. Let me tell you why :) a vector file is resolution free and it is already isolated on transparent background. png is isolated too but since it's a raster image, it is limited by it's resolution. You can always convert a vector to png, but you can't convert png to vector.

Yes, I think I understand. But not all illustrations are vectors. I do have a few illustrations that are rasters and not vectors. So I can not up load a eps format..So a jpeg illustration (not a vector) qualifies as a png? I am going to experiment.

I understand, if you don't have the eps or ai, then png is the best choose :)

Agreed but only useful if there is transparency or it's an isolation.
