Hi there,

I've been using symbiostock for a couple of weeks and i think it is fantastic. It does a wonderful job.
For me, it's not so much a stock site but a gallery. I shoot an event and i put the photos on symbiostock for sale. I create a category for them with the name of the event.
So, there are some options that i think could be added, in order to make the platform work both ways.

Two main things would be:
-Order by date. (so the pictures show up by the order they were taken during the day)
-Next and Previous on the buy page. (To be able to see the event with preview size and buy them on the fly)

Two other options that would be nice are:
-Credit (if a client has some complain about the photo they buy, it would be great to be able to give him a credit that he could use in a next buy)
-Password category This would create private events.

And one last thing... I'm from Europe... On the "Buy" page, the sizes "don't make sense".  15" 10" @ 300 dpi / 4500 3000px -> a 10x15 for us is a 4'' x 6''. It gets people confused.
It would be really nice if in the configuration page we could chose inches or centimeters

Hope some of this details can be fixed without too much work. :\

In the upper right corner where you publish or update the picture there are a few features that can help with a little bit of what you're asking. 

The date and time can be edited.  It's a bit more work to add the time the picture was taken when you upload but using that option you can change the order for the pictures to something other than the upload order.

You also have the option to password protect individual posts but I'm not sure how it would work to view and purchase.  You may have to create a new page that is password protected, then password protect the images and add a gallery with links to the image files.
