Hello everyone, after reading all the posts and finally making a decision to go exclusive with Dreamstime, it happened today. Really happy I made this decision, plus I did not know that it would be retroactive. What a surprise.
There are very good sales of quite some big exclusive guys. You'd be happy when sales keep coming. :)
I wouldn't congratulate on going exclusive right now. I would, when you get good benefits of it. I find myself loving extra revenue but then I find myself cursing exclusivity when sales slow down because it feels like I'm chained. The upload bonus acts as consolation at times. :) You'd enjoy the "feelings" of exclusivity. ;)

Thank you everyone, this is one of the reasons i chose DT for its great community.
Robinstockphotos, over some years I have been with other agencies and started here selling images in 2012, after six months here I decided I need more time shooting then being on the computer hence my decision to go with one agency. As for feeling chained as you mentioned I actually feel more liberated and unchained from my computer.
Congratulations on your decision. I have never had any regrets--could never imagine the time it would take me to upload to several agencies. Besides I feel it dilutes the value of my images to have them on more than one site. Good luck with sales:)
Currently my primary cameras are a Fuji X-T2 and a Fuji X100F.
