question about uploading additional formats like raw

I edit my pictures in raw format and convert to jpeg before uploading to DT

Is it wise to upload the Raw format too ? Do you receive extra money if they accept the Raw format too ?

... if and when they sell, they bring in more money than selling the jpeg of the same image.

Many people seem to make this mistake. It is true for credit sales, but not for subscriptions. You'll get $0.35 for a RAW just the same as a JPG when it is level 0-2. The flip side, though, is that for me a RAW sale is often accompanied by a jpg sale as well - in that sense you can double the sale even for subs (plus net 2 sales in terms of counting towards higher levels).

I upload Sony RAW (ARW) with no problems.

Did not sell one yet, I have few uploaded. Ran similar blog with mixed response. I always shoot raw and jpg(Sony A700 for you) and almost always raw is the best option to work on. With Sony A700 you will need to convert to DNG to upload, Sony raw is not accepted format, I believe. Kind regards

I often upload the raw format, but I too don't do it until the jpeg has been accepted. As a previous comment says, you don't get any money for just uploading a raw format, but if and when they sell, they bring in more money than selling the jpeg of the same image.

To save time I wait until the jpeg has been accepted and then upload the RAW file.

No, there is no extra money for the RAW format unless a buyer purchases it... Note that you get more for a RAW file when purchased with credits, but the same amount for a subscription.
