I have today been approved as an exclusive contributor and just wanted a few tips on maximising the benefits of this.

I previously opted out of the partner program as I felt my istock mages were being downloaded cheaper elsewhere and not contributing to my 250 downloads I was working towards, in effect diluting my sales. I have been keen to focus my energy in one place.

What is the concencus on opting back into the partner program now I am exclusive and hit my initial target? My welcome email stated:

***Please note***

As an exclusive contributor, new files (18 months old or newer) can only appear on either iStockphoto or the partner sites, but not both.

As files go live on partner sites for sale, these files are being removed from iStockphoto.

You can choose to have the files return to iStockphoto, simply view your portfolio, click on the Partner Program category, and uncheck the files you would like to return to iStockphoto. These files will be removed from the partner sites, and be live again on iStockphoto within 10 days.

Also I see I have 2 vetta nominations left when I go to add a new file. Can I use these nomination for currently approved files - perhaps some of my best sellers, to increase revenue from them?

Thanks in advance.
