Below is a quick overview on the new prices (in credits) for iStockphoto´s Vetta Collection (without illustrations) announced yesterday, the differences to the current Vetta pricing scheme and to the new Agency Collection.
Explained later as a "technical glitch" ("both accepted and rejected files" were appearing), images from the Agency Collection showed up on the website with the latest uploads, causing a lot of discussion about the quality&prices of the images in the Agency Collection.
Especially the meanwhile famous "vacant-sign-on-toilet-door" image - it´s no longer live on iStock, but in the Agency Collection on Getty here and on fStop. Compare the different prices on all three sites. It is currently not possible in iStock´s Advanced Search to search the Vetta and the Agency Collection separately.
[Update: Agency Collection XXXLarge is 250, and the difference 67%]
