Being a cynic why would they encourage exclusive images when they make more from non-exclusive? Or are the prices different?

The prices are the same its just the revenue split.  I would agree with your conclusion.

I guess the advantage of highlighting exclusive images might be to discourage buyers from shopping round (but Alamy don't think that happens to a great extent).

I guess its a good marketing ploy to say we have xxx exclusive images....actually selling those specific images not so much ;-)

Well that explains why Alamy have trouble getting the money in looks like they need a credit controller.  Lets hope whoever gets the job is a darn sight tougher with late payers ;D

If an agency can offer something special and different - exclusive -  it is an asset. Buyers get bored seeing the same images accross all agencies.

Yes its good to offer them not so much to sell them ahead of non-exclusive.
