This week iStockphoto has launched new collection of images named Exclusive+. It consists of some of the very best images from Exclusive collection chosen by Exclusive artists on their own. It's important to note that every artists has his own limits for how many images may be moved to Exclusive+. Number of images depends of approval rate and varies from 10% to 20% of artist's portfolio.
The main difference between well-known Exclusive collection and the new one is the price that buyer has to pay to purchase the image. Here's Exclusive+ collection prices for photographs for year 2010: XSmall — 5 credits, Small — 10 credits, Medium — 15 credits, Large — 20 credits, XLarge — 25 credits, XXLarge — 30 credits, XXXLarge — 35 credits.

a) Main, where the every image begins its long way at iStockphoto;
b) Exclusive, which consists of images of exclusive artists;
