I've got one additional RAW format for one pic so far, but haven't sold it yet. Selling a RAW file seems to be an interesting income for a contributor, but is also expensive for a buyer.
If we would know how big the part of sold RAWs is for DT, we could reconsider this (a little time-consuming) option for all our uploaded files.

Let's see what other contributors have to say.

Cheers, Massimo

So far I haven't even tried to upload RAW's - so thanks for asking Alexandra and I too am looking forward for answers on this :)

Your choices are up to you, but I will never sell my raw files.
They are the proof that I own the copyright of my images.
And it feels like a potter selling the clay instead of the pots.

I have uploaded a few RAW files and then stopped completely for the exact reasons given. They are the proof that you took the photograph.

I would like to know this answer too! does having a raw format help sell an image? who is getting a better sale out of it? I have uploaded at least a dozen raw files, but never sold one yet. inquiring minds want to know!

I have been uploading RAW files without selling any. After reading this, I may stop.

Many thanks - this has answered my question. Was going to spend some time today uploading RAW files but think I will do something else instead! Regards
