A very fair assessment.................... but the feedback from Editors is more valuable than gold if you don't get upset..................... sometimes I disagree but generally just accept their view.

If you examine the current assignment approved images........ you'll probably think some are rubbish not as good as yours........... that's where subjectivity comes into image assessment. David

I think your sales will boost up if you go have 425 images online and that is good potential to go exclusive and increase your sales. Just my opinion.

Actually, one of the main reasons for me to be exclusive is that I don't want my images to be scattered widely, I simply like micro managing of my own stuff.

I agree with you in most of the arguments... as an "soft" option to the exclusive member there is a possibility to mark the pictures to be exclusive for this site. It gives me more flexibility for the time being.

What you are saying is exactly the same reason why I decided to become a exclusive photographer for Dreamstime. There are some good stock agencies, but some are very slow with approving photo's. Also the personal management of my photos is very annoying. At some agencies a good photo that has been sold many times is not accepted on another site. Also the conditions of DT for becoming a exclusive member are in my opinion very good. You get good payment.

I went exclusive as I just don't have the time to upload to all the other agencies as well. DT pays well for exclusive contributors. I am happy here....

I just hit 50 this week. DT is very easy to work with. I am considering being exclusive. If another agency charges less for your image, would I be discounting my own work? Just a thought.
