Installed SymbioStock on a test site and really liked it. Now need to find out if it can do the sort of things we need it to do (don't mind buying premium or any plugins).

We are a press agency, so images will always be press/paparazzi.

Sets of images - So on the images page instead of single images there are sets, you see the first image in the set and when you click into it, you see the whole set. You can then click on any image in the set. We don't want the option to download/buy a set.

Don't need prices for downloads, just need two download links (hi-res and lo-res). Registered users can download both, the lo-res would be the watermarked image on the site.

Need a way to see who has downloaded what and when.

The way we want to work is someone wants to start using our images. They either pay us a yearly fee and can download whatever or they download images and we charge them later depending on usage.

I do not think this could be done as it stands at the moment but all sorts of things can be done if someone could create a plug in for you.

If there is something very particular to yourself you need the software to do, you could also consider getting a plug-in created for you.  There is tons of really good programmers for wordpress on a site like freelancer.com or similar work for hire site.

for sets - you can include the other images within the desc of the first image, so people can click on them; can also do this with 'similars' or with detailed categories.

eg, I've set up travel pages with contact sheets like http://cascoly.com/trav/asia/burma.asp  and 'quick search ' pages like
http://cascoly-images.com/pix/animal-images-quick-search-contact-sheets/

the combination of WP and the sym theme gives you lots of flexibility

you can set up private areas where your licensed customers can find their images
