    Symbiostock – Sell Your Images!

    Add to List

    Symbiostock is a free, full featured WordPress plugin to sell your digital media. Our software is the preferred choice for independent photographers and vector artists who want to retain maximum control over their digital art, whilst earning from a high profit margin. Symbiostock makes the setup process seamless and easy for any avid photographer.

    Love taking photos? Why not make money on them?
    Ever thought about monetizing all those great travel photos? Just can’t get enough of taking shots of delicious foods? Well, now instead of just storing all these images on your phone or computer, you can showcase them and actually sell them to magazines and bloggers using Symbiostock!

    Protect your digital photos.
    Symbiostock automatically watermarks your uploaded photos, so that when it appears on your online store, it is safely stamped to deter internet users from violating your copyright. Watermarking your images helps to protect your original work from theft and unauthorised use.

    We offer two versions of our core software. A Lite version which is ideal for very basic use, and a Pro version that is complete with everything a photographer or vector artists might need to create a full-fledged digital media store and management centre. Both Lite and Pro versions are 100% free to use – there are no hidden fees or monthly subscriptions and updates are also always free.

    Symbiostock Lite

    The Symbiostock download on WordPress is Symbiostock Lite and is for basic use. Symbiostock Lite is a WooCommerce extension that allows you to upload JPEGs that will automatically be watermarked and added to WooCommerce as a digital product. Watermarking your images helps to protect your original work from theft and unauthorised use.

    Once Symbiostock Lite is installed, you will see a new ‘Upload Media’ tab under your WooCommerce products header. Once uploaded, an image will be added as a digital product in draft mode. You can then edit the title/description/tags for your image and once published it is ready to be purchased and downloaded by customers.

    Whilst Symbiostock Lite is good for those who wish to supplement their existing Woocommerce store by offering a limited selection of downloadable images to customers, you can upgrade to the Symbiostock Pro plugin for free to create a full featured photography or vector illustration store.

    Symbiostock Pro is a free, fuller upgrade to Symbiostock Lite with many more features. Symbiostock Pro is ideal for hobbyists, amateur to professional photographers and vector artists who want to create a full digital media store and management system, complete with resized images, custom watermarks, licensing, protected downloads, meta data editing and more. Complete information on Symbiostock Pro is detailed below.

    Please keep in mind that Symbiostock Lite products are not compatible with Symbiostock Pro, so it is advisable to upgrade to Pro right from the get-go. Remember Pro is also free, so if you think you might want to use Pro features in the future, upgrade straight away to make it easier for yourself in the long run.

    Symbiostock Pro Free Upgrade

    Check out the Symbiostock demo site to see Symbiostock Pro in action.

    Symbiostock Pro is a free upgrade to Lite that offers advanced licensing, image manipulation, and other features, including the option of uploading videos, illustrations and vectors, with optional agency distribution and more. Symbiostock Pro is a full application that allows both professionals and amateurs alike to easily upload and automate the entire management of their online media store. It also allows you to include your media in Symzio, the first contributor controlled agency. Symbiostock Pro is completely free, there are no fees or monthly subscriptions and includes free lifetime software updates.

    Features available in Pro include

    • FTP & Web Uploads. Upload all your images via FTP or a browser.
    • Imagick & GD Support. Use either Imagick or the built in PHP GD library for image processing.
    • Automatic thumbnails. All your images are protected via your custom watermark and thumbnails are automatically created.
    • Fully supports Vectors. With Imagick, you can sell vectors as both vectors and raster images.
    • Custom delivery format. Choose JPEG, PNG, GIF or others for customer downloads. Symbiostock converts everything automatically.
    • Robust licensing. Create your own licenses, edit pricing and licensing individually or globally using powerful filters.
    • Secure downloads. All image downloads are protected, files hidden from public view. Decide how many times, and for how much time, images can be downloaded once purchased.
    • Bulk editing. Change titles, descriptions, tags in bulk.
    • Full Metadata support. Symbiostock reads metadata when importing media and can write all your changes back to media. Converts your WordPress install into a full metadata editor.
    • Compatible with any WordPress theme. As Symbiostock is built on WordPress, you can use ANY WordPress theme and it will work beautifully with Symbiostock.
    • EU VAT Supported. With optional third party plugins, works to charge correctly, collect evidence, and even allow business customers to be exempted under the new EU VAT regulations.
    • GPS Geotags Supported Reads GPS information within geotagged images (usually automatically signed with enabled cameras) and displays location on an interactive Google Map on your image’s product page.
    • Optimized Related Products Uses meta data to display highly related ‘Related Products’ on individual product pages.

    Fully Automated

    Pro only

    Once your WordPress site is online and Symbiostock has been installed, all you have to do is upload photos and Symbiostock does the rest. Licensing, pricing, even delivering protected content to customers is all done automatically and all you do is one-click upload. However, if you wish to customize your watermarks, licensing (add/remove/edit licenses), pricing or even change the sizes of the images you sell, you can easily do all of this with Symbiostock Pro.

    About Us

    Symbiostock started as a plugin for a small group of microstock artists to sell their media online. Symbiostock was created and is maintained by photographers just like you. We are artists who want to be able to sell our media directly to customers without having to rely solely on any third parties for distribution. Along with setting our own prices, having full control over the way in which we market our media has always been a high priority. As a community driven enterprise, we do our best to listen to and meet our community’s needs in order to empower our fellow digital artists.


    All support is performed on in our forums. Symbiostock provides help guides, extensive in-software tool tips and documentation for all our plugins. You may also submit custom support requests via our premium support system.

    Symbiostock Hosting

    Perhaps one of the most powerful features provided with Symbiostock is the hosting service created by the developers themselves. As Symbiostock bridges that gap between website and photo/video software like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator, it requires quite a bit of processing power which many web-hosts are unable to provide. Symbiostock Hosting provides high-end, cutting-edge hosting at competitive rates to eliminate any issues users may encounter with other hosts.

    Symzio Integration
