I have recently shared an album of my pictures in an online photography forum and someone contacted me, asking if I can sell them a print, or the digital file for them to print themselves.
I have never sold any prints before and at the moment, I don't have time to spend on that; also I don't have any calibration tools for my monitor or any experience in high quality printing, and I don't want to half-ass that, so I don't want to sell a print right now. However, I'd be fine with selling the digital file so that person can print the photo. But I have no idea how to price a digital file, and what exactly I should give out.
Do you normally just send out a high-quality JPG? Or the RAW file along with the XMP file containing my edits? (I edited the picture in Lightroom) If I should go with JPG, do I just send out the full size (6000x4000) or ask them what size they want to print it in and send an appropriatly downsized version? And how do I determine an approriate price for that? What are the relevant factors?
I've read online that I should factor in the image size as well as the editing time. I don't know how long I spent on it, probably less than 10 minutes. I'm just not sure how to approach this, any price I could come up with somehow feels ... random. Some insights are appreciated!
