I just had someone ask me for a raw file!

of a completed photo I posted here for illustration in a post.  They said they wanted to use it for a "before and after" demonstration.

I said 'no'.  There was no mention of giving me any credit, and even if there was credit, I'm not sure I want to be known for photos I DIDN'T finish to completion.

And to be honest, there is no way you can guarantee that with the raw file, that the person wouldn't be able to claim the photo as his or her own image.

I'm not the world's greatest photographer, but I'm better than some.  Do you think I'm being too paranoid?
