never jpeg again

posted on 29th of november, 2007

I'm a newbie,but I hope the follows helpful.I must say that i'd rather camera jpeg before,simply because it's easy to check the image or overview.Maybe it is the experience of using dc that contribute to this habit.

Usually i adjust a pic with photoshop,but i found it good enough to do so with nikon capture software if you shoot raw.I use nikon d70s btw.As many bloggers here mentioned ,you can do more adjustment with raw format,even the original white balance.So finally i understand why most designers prefer the raw.

And what taught me a good lesson is like this:
I lost an opportunity to sell an image because i can't just provide the raw format when a potential buyer asked for it.That happened a couple days ago.

Want your images sell better, shoot raw!

Ideally it would be nice if we could just upload only the raw file, but dreamstime would *display* the embedded jpg file. The customer should then have the option of buying if the photographer allows it.

And one of the best things about RAW is the image compression is lossless and changes you make in the software are only applied to the exported jpeg only. So where necessary you can keep going back to a previous processing job and make changes and export a new jpeg again.

The best way to assure a raw sale is to upload the raw as an additional file before it is requested

Selling your RAW file is like selling your negitive. I gets requests all the time, they go in my trash bin. Selling RAW is something I just refuse to do. Your mileage may vary

well,you can change a raw image into a jepg with many softwares,but it seems not so easy in reverse.you have raw,you have more turnabout room.
