I hope to go Exclusive at some point, but I am puzzled by how PP impacts on this. I understand that files younger than 18 months old can't be on both iStockphoto and in the partner program - that makes perfect sense. And as a non-exclusive I am automatically opted in to the PP - that's fine by me. But according to this post once I go exclusive I need to opt out files from PP manually, and that there will be a 10 day period before they are live on iStock again.
Is there no way to opt them out as part of the process of going exclusive, or do I just have to go exclusive and live with a 10 day quarantine on all the files under 18 months?

I had this recently when I went exclusive - it was all handled automatically, my newer files were removed from PP sites very quickly, and all images remained on sale here at IS the whole time.
Hope that helps.

Ah, that's good news. Thanks for that.
