Some things I think we need to see in Symbiostock in the near future (Leo - please see this as a way to improve the product, not as a nit-picking list of demands! :) ) that many other themes have.

- Ability to easily have different sidebars for different pages/posts
- Simple tickbox on each page to "Allow Comments" or not, with a global option as well
- Show Author info - yes/no option in Admin interface
- Basic contact form
- Colour pickers, styling options
- some more Symbiostock widgets - Most Popular Files, Latest Uploads, Discounted Images etc etc

Of course the actual functionality is first and foremost at the moment!

A few of those are available as plugins - but these:

- Colour pickers, styling options
- some more Symbiostock widgets - Most Popular Files, Latest Uploads, Discounted Images etc etc

This is going to be a nice premium "child theme' I intend to sell, with a few other perks.

That will be a biggie. Its own plugin actually. Quite a challenge to build too. But its officially in the plan.

That was talked about in the first pages of the "Hey, here's an idea" conversation that started this. Some people are going to outgrow this fast.

working last night to link to my sym site from my other websites - would be nice on either the image page (admin only of course) or the edit image page to list the URL of the images  so they can easily be copied

----------------------------
ability to do a search based on category (or just an edit list by category) that would then allow bulk edit of selected images (eg, to change category, etc)

-----------------------
with possible addition of video, would make sense to break up the pricing area  - right now, it's all or npone.  but video, collections and image sizes are different types, so we ight want to change all image prices, but not zip or video files;  or, more simply, allow us to check off thee prices for which we want a global change, and if that pricing is not available for an image ignore it -- thus when I do a global price change for zips, it doesn't then set a zip price for all my images which have no zip  (didn't want to test this too far for fear what it might do to existing prices)

Improvements in the Image editing area.... If this were any stock site but my own I would have stopped uploading because of the pain of working with it..... :) :)

I very much support the above one as well.

In addition I think that having the possibility to decide on the number of pictures shown by page would be nice!

Processing is quite laborious but  lot of that is the seo work and is fine when the internet is working at a reasonable speed, I normally have three windows open to do it now so I don't have to keep waiting.

One thing I would like to see is more than 24 images available when searching categories as I think this could become somewhat frustrating for clients, options for different amounts might be nice even if, like deviant art, you can only see the largest numbers if you are logged in/registered etc ?

....

right, that's why it may be useful to pre-calc some things like count for tags, topics of each site, etc and store them in a separate table.  the updates to be done as background, I bit at a time while people are looking , etc

I am not having "problems"... just extremely frustrated in how the workflow is.

Things that would be useful is to be able to step through images.... being able to select a group but work on those individually...to be able to do sorts on the images by different criteria ( views, ratings, comments, sales

under royalty free images / all images

have to page thru to find the image -- need to be able to have search active here to reduce the # of images; right now search just jumps to search results page, losing bulk edit option

when thinking about how to handle video, another type would be packages/collections that are too big for storing in the system -- 200 - 500Mb collections, eg that could be downloaded from another storage site, but processed thru SYM

also, this would be another reason to break out the repricing updates, so that changing the defaults for diff image sizes doesn't also turn on zip files or footage

I believe this was mentioned once, but I would like to bring it up again.

Since my images are now being indexed by google, I have had a chance to check them out in a google images search. Some images do not show a watermark at all, because of the colors, density of colors, etc. I know it is there, but I would like to be able to control the opacity, so on the darker images, I might make the watermark a little lighter, and on lighter images I could make it darker.

Can the similar images widget be coded to set the max number of images shown? Thanks

I hope to do that soon. Someone has also requested an exclusive images widget / categories widget with that feature.

Hi, as well as the exclusive image widget. I'm also after a banner to go with  editoral images like you did for the exclusive images. However, I know ur really busy.

Have found one way around an Editorial banner - and it can be edited to your own preferences - mine just needs to shrink a bit

A filter on the image page to sort from newest first, to override the ranking for buyers who want to see the latest images. Just a button to click. I would love that as well

Do you mind sharing how you've done it? Do you simply put this picture into the image description?
