      Yes, it can be considered as fifth. But it’s not a collection as iStockphoto doesn’t consider it to be a collection :).
      It’s just a number of files which are marked for sale at extremely low price and will be deleted after a month. It’s like a trash can in Windows.
      That’s why we tell only about four collections.
