No interest in exclusivity anywhere now.  If I ever did think about it, the masses leaving exclusivity at Istock cast a shadow on the whole idea of exclusivity. 

That said, if Adobe/FT could sew up the market and offer an exclusivity program that makes it financially worth dropping other sites, I might consider it.  But there would have to be a year or two of good track record from them, and some really good incentives.

I do not like to put all my eggs (photos) in 1 basket. Sell much more spread out than exclusive.

I have changed status of some files, that were accepted today to exclusive. But the pricing hasn't changed. It's still as if they were non-exclusive. Anyone knows, how to change that?

You must click on your exclusive picture and go to "This is one of your files, you can index it" under your picture and settle the price up.

Ok, thanks, it worked. I changed XS price from 1 to 3, and all other sizes automatically changed too. Before that, I only changed X price from 30 to 100 and other prices remained the same.

I still have one question though, if I change my mind, and change the status of exclusive files to non-exclusive, can I upload them to other sites or do I have to wait some time before I can do that?

I think to 99% you can do this immediately after going to non-exclusive.

You have a nice port. Hope you sell this exclusive pics. A commission raise from 3 Credit for XXL-File-Sale to 9 :-)

If you were fullex, your commision would be 16,2 /$ !

That is what non-ex-contributors who were at many agencies often not will see.

At FL you raise up from 3 /S for XXL-Sale to 16,2 /$ (if you are only silverranked)!

I have a few images exclusive on fotolia, it seems to help overall portfolio visibility. But unfortunately the customer cannot search for exclusive content and exclusive images are not marked in any way.

I think there is more fotolia could do with their exclusive content.

I also hope this coming up, after years of ignoring this marketing and costumerfriendly searchoption. Adobe will make this hopefully!

I have ~ 30 % Subs. It depends on your PF i think.

Many of the 70% Credit-Sales are Size M and L, also many XL for 30 and XXL for 36 Cr.
DPC is in Europe not so dominant i think.

And here is whats the difference between full-exlusives and not-exclusiv :-)

True, here in Germany there are fully exclusive fotolia artists with an income that is similar or higher than what istock exclusives get. Higher royalty rate makes a big difference.

But i wouldn't go fully exclusive anywhere again, exclusive images- that is something i like very much.
