I've been uploading to PhotoDune, but I'm conflicted about it.   While $1 is more than 35 cents, there are no pricing tiers like DT, so it's $1 now and forever.  No one is going to go exclusive here, so the higher commission rate for exclusives is just a tease.   

At $1, I'd have to see a lot of sales and so far, that's not happening.  If I end up feeling like I've just dumped my images into another bargain bin, I'll probably pull out rather than undercut DT and SS.

Hello stockastic! I can appreciate your dilemma and realize there are many different option for you out there to choose from and it means a lot to us that you have decided to give PhotoDune a shot. I have noticed that some of our authors have decided to offer the bulk of their portfolio as a non-exclusive author but have also created a second account where they are beginning to sell a portion of their stock as exclusive to test the waters a bit.

I am curious to know what your thoughts are on that approach if you (or others) might have a moment to share.

Either way, thanks again for your feedback and for being a part of PhotoDune! - Josh

Josh, don't get me wrong, I'm certainly hoping Photodune succeeds...

I'm a small fish so my opinions don't carry a lot of weight.  But based on my experiences and observations over the last couple of years, I wouldn't go exclusive with any agency, because the future is just too cloudy.  And I don't see much point in offering specific images as exclusives at an agency - unless maybe that agency's market was distinct in some way, such that the images would do exceptionally well there compared to other agencies.
