As we discussed earlier, SmugMug does not support RAW files. Hence, you need to have an added SmugMug service called SmugVault to upload RAW files to SmugMug.
The JPG has to be uploaded first and then RAW's with the same filename so that they are bundled automatically. So when you see a photo in JPEG / JPG format, the RAW file is integrated directly right alongside your JPEGs.
Similarly, if you wish to download RAW files from SmugMug to your computer, you can do it through SmugVault. Downloading from the SmugVault back to your computer costs you $.12/GB
Here is the download process:
1. Log in to your SmugMug account and open the gallery that you want to download.
2. There is a built-in 'Download All' feature in your SmugMug gallery. It is located under the 'Tools' menu.Click it to request for download.
3. Once you have made the download request, SmugMug will create a zip file that include all the SmugVault photos, videos from the gallery.
4. Once done, they will send you an email with a link to retrieve it.
5. The photos in the zip file are the originals that you uploaded to SmugVault. Remember, the download link is valid for 2 weeks only.

... an excellent job of uploading more then 300GB of photos to 2 different services
I have a large collection of photos and videos to upload on some of my storage account and I was looking for an application that can do it all automatically, and that it did especially well. I found a definitive answer to my needs thanks to this amazing program and that it is constantly improving whith new fantastic features.
PicBackMan was really easy to setup and has been running for 3 days now backing up all my locally saved photos to Flickr. My photos are really valuable to me so it's great to be able to have them easily backed up to a secure location.
PicBackMan was an answer to many a prayer. How can I get this MASSIVE collection of photos onto a service that cripples uploading? PicBackMan. I uploaded approximately 85,000 photos in less than a month. It would have taken me close to a year to get all of those photos where they needed to go. Nothing short of brilliant.
LOVE this program! Works better than ANY other program out there that I have found to upload thousands of pictures WITH SUB-FOLDERS to SmugMug! Thank you so much for what you do! :) #happycustomer
