Uploading a RAW file

Hello,

I was wondering if there is an additional benefit of uploading in a RAW or Vector file when submitting images.

" Should you have an additional format (vector, RAW) to upload for this file, you can continue here."

Being new to Dreamstime I am not quite aware.

Thankyou very much

Nik

After I received a request from DT that a buyer is requesting a raw format on one of my images, I'm thinking about shooting in raw as well. I didn't have the raw format on any of my images, and I obviously had forgone that one sale. Lesson learned!

I asked the same question not long ago. I have not sold a raw file but i am now uploading raw after the photo is accepted like Jdanne. There have been some comments that it is like giving away your negitive but we still retain copyright so I don't have a problem with it.

From my experience, most of my additional formats were downloaded by subscription buyers. Some of them like to download both the maximum size of the JPG file and the additional format, so you get two sales as opposed to just one from the same image. In other words, the image with additional format may bring you more money and may go up in levels more quickly. And of course, if you are lucky enough to have a buyer downloading the additional format using credits, you'll rewarded instantly for a good sum of money (double of the maximum size). ;)

First I do only upload the jpg file. When the photo got accepted I do upload the raw format, too.

There is no additional benefit for that! But, of course, it´s worth it. If additional formats gets purchased you earn more money. That´s the benefit!
