I'm entirely happy with Ktools product - Photostore. Not only the stunning look 'n feel also the admin side is quite user friendly. Essential customization features are added to make it your own. After sales service was pretty good.
I had a year evaluating stockbox, photocart and photostore. Well will are going with PhotoStore. It's way better in most aspects. Believe me 1 year testing and developing with the 3 applications and 7 people unanimous agree go with PhotoStore.

I've been a "stock" provider for almost a decade, I've been wanting to have my own site for sometime now. I know just enough about building website to make me not want to do one. I've looks for a few years to find a solution for building my own website to sell images in the same manner as the sites that I sell my "stock" thru. I had found a fw solution, however I didn't want to have to rent service, store image on other servers, I want to be in control. I was turned on to ktools thru a friend, Yes, this looked to be the solution! I've been able to build a site using Photostore 4 and get the look and functionality that I want. The customer/tech support has been quick and efficient! I look forward to growing my online business with ktools.

I am illustrator and user of Ktools PhotoStore. I'd like to thank you for the the great product! PhotoStore is the only software solution that gave me the opportunity to build the web site that I always wanted to create: Toonstyle.com - Royalty-Free Stock Vector Images with Extended License. This is vector images selling platform for those who needs royalty free images with extended license.
When we want a car, we don't spend every penny we have and every second we have building one from scratch, encountering every problem that every car manufacturer has encountered and dealt with years ago - we buy one at a reasonable price from people who know what they're doing. That is Ktools. We wanted a site that did the job, which looked great, that wasn't overcomplicated and was reasonably priced. Photostore brings us all of these along with an incredibly helpful team who are always friendly and willing to help. I would recommend the software to anyone and you will be impressed for sure! The Summit Fever team look forward to using the Photostore for a long time to come and would like to thank the Ktools team for their assistance so far! All the best, Matt.

I just wanted to let everyone at ktools know how pleased I am with the latest version on Photostore. Now that you've integrated Smarty templates into your script, customizing the design is much easier than before. I just relaunched grungetextures.com using Photostore and have been extremely pleased with my decision. The script works flawlessly with PayPal. I've completed over 100 transactions with Photostore and not one complaint from my customers. The checkout process is smooth and efficient. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to build a stock photography website. It's an excellent script with outstanding support.
Wong Sze Fei: photostockit.com
We started selling stock photos on other agencies however we decided to sell direct to our client. Photostore gives us the convenience without having to code or hire someone to code it.We have been using Photostore for around 1 year. The service so far has been excellent and the product works great. Good job ktools!
Steve Thibou: motopix.com.au
I think ktools have done an awesome job with Photstore, the product is rock solid and meets my needs. I have use many other photo catalog programs and this is the best by far. Well done to the small team at ktools.
Noel Elliot: ozphotos.net.au
I have been with Ktools since May 2011 and I am very pleased with the ease of using the software and support on the very few occasions I have needed it. I am not a computer guy but I find this system so easy to use.
Rob Fera: sudburylight.ca
I expected the transition to version 3 to 4 to be a scary thing... couldn't have been further from the truth.. backed up my original site containing all the photos, arranged them into categories... installed V4 myself... had the support guys do a little tweaking ( 5 hours from request to implementation) ... uploaded my old images.... and presto... beautiful, punchy new site with great features. take a look.... All I can say is dudes.. gotta upgrade to V4...
Thorsten Trzecziak: trzecziak.de
V3 was a really good software to sell digital stuff on the www. v4 is the giant now. Runnig great, and fast and also secure . Best choice if you want to sell your own fotos!!
Geoff Jewett: rightstockphotos.com
My website, Jewett's Right Stock Photos was created 2 years ago using the Ktools Photostore software. I have found the software to be a great asset to easily manage my site. Ktools contiues to improve their software and I have received a number of upgrades during my 2 years. The service team is very responsive and will always find a solution to your problems or issues. I have found my relationship with KTools to be the type of business relationship we all want to have with our vendors. I plan to continue with KTools and their products and highly recommend them to others.
Renť van Maarsseveen: deuxiemebeeldbank.com
With my programmer I've looked at several photo gallery programs. PhotoStore was by far the best. After renting it for a year we bought the program. It has all possible or needed functions to make it look like you want and to have it act like you want. And if you can't find a solution there is always the more than helpful assistance through forums and the helpdesk. I can recommend everyone who wants a photogallery to show and/or sell his/her photos in a professional way to look no further....
Chad Anderson: eyeidea.com
PhotoStore is working great for us! Thank you for a great solution to image sales online!
Wolfi Korn: cartoonshop.biz
I was a long time looking for a software that can help me to sale my cartoon works in web. I tried some free applications and only with ktools product I nave got good alternative.
Nabeel Zytoon: logosstock.com
First of all i want to thank ktools and photo store for the great software, i was looking for software to sell my logos designs and finally i found the the greatest software to start my business. "I would recommend PhotoStore".
David Seaver: davidseaver.com
I have been using PhotoStore for over 4 years now and it's been great. A wonderful solution to selling stock photos online! My site currently has over 27,000 images on it. No other site that I've found can handle so many images in such an easy and user friendly way. I really love the control that I have from not having to use a third party photo seller. This PhotoStore paid for itself in the first few months.
Sharon Shirt: aboriginalimages.ca
I spent many hours scouring the website for a solid, quality program that I could use for my very specific type of images/videos. I tried a hosted site for over 2 years but they did not have the features I wanted. I was glad to come across PhotoStore - it was easy to set up and the support is one of the best I have come across.
Arjen Mulder: arjenmulder.com
The Photo Store from Ktools is a product I can highly recommend. It just covers all the needs of photographers who want to sell online, both digital files and prints. Good job, also on the service!
Helge Aspevik: duopicture.com
A great tool to present my images, no doubt about that. Good support.
Cory Thoman: mystockvectors.com
I was looking for software that I could sell my vectors with and was easy to use. PhotoStore filled both those needs. It was so easy to set up, it makes me wonder why I didn't create a store for myself before now. Thanks!
Konstantin Gastmann: kita-fotograf.de
PhotoStore is easy to use, and it's excellent value for money.
Richard Barley Photography: pureprints.com
What can I say about ktools and photo store. Well its changed my life. I have been able to build a very successful photography business with photo store over the past four years. I have been able to produce a site that is google friendly and converts viewers into customers. The support is superb at ktools and they have always sorted out any small issues. I really recommend hosting your site with ktools hosting as the support is excellent.
Alex Dethier: jenvaughnart.com
Ktools has been amazingly easy to install (thanks to the amazing support), run and manage. We're now effortlessly running an expanded gallery area for our illustrators!
Jorge Santiago: Fotosoaxaca.com
Photostore had provided me a way to bring my photography work closer to my customers and also advertise my services as a photographer. The software is really easy to use and customize.
Odd Hostad: oddhstock.com
I've tried several "photo sale" solutions. It's many good options out there, but none worked the way I wanted. Then I came across KTOOLS, so now I'm using both PhotoStore and PhotoHost. It works flawless and the support is great.
Mark Rogers: markrogers.info
I spent many hours looking for the answer to a very specific question. Namely, I need a solution that will allow me to host stock images, and my event photography. It had to be fluid in design and ease of use for both me, and my visitors. Photostore ticked all the boxes for me, and many more besides! I run the demo's several times, and always came away with the same conclusion! Why haven't I bought this yet!
Easy to configure and manage, this solution was/is an elegant script that was designed and executed for people like me, from the ground up. Rather than a dodgy blog conversion that's got more bugs than the local zoo! The installation was done within hours by ktools, and that's what I call service. I intend to remain loyal to this product, as it has made my life much easier. My visitors enjoy the intuitive interface, and ease of use. A credit to the design team indeed
Tim Russo: AnytimeTemplates.co.au
Purchased the software in October 2009 after researching the best photo solutions available. The solution is first class from the management interface through to the style of the final solution. Even customization of the website is brilliant with the WYSIWYG editors inbuilt with the package and the support areas available after purchasing. Well done to all the developers and support personnel at KTOOLS!! I thoroughly recommend this package for anyone selling digital media and requiring a professional product. Thanks Tim
Manuel Alvarez: fotografia-cantabria.com
Software is very easy to use. Ktools is very responsive to my needs with a quick and professional response. Thanks and keep up the good work.
We wanted a simple package that allowed us to start with small steps and grow. We were not able to find it and we tried to have one developed but after a year, we did not have any working software. PhotoStore was up in 24 hours.
A second strong point is their support. They are available at the times they say and it is great being able to ask any question.
I am in the early days of setting up my stock photography website where I am hoping to sell exclusive stock photos from a number of photographers. I have been pleasantly suprised by the helpfulness of the ktool staff in implementing my websites. There were one or two issues which were sorted out in no time. I have also just finished upgrading to the newest version. The instructions gave a perfect picture of what to do and the upgrade worked first time out. I can already recommend ktools and hope this 5 star level of service keeps going well into the future.
Tim Neale: idenna.com
We went online in June 2007 with Photostore and we're still really, really pleased with it nearly two years later (right now it's April 2009). Not only has it paid for itself over and over but it's also a great shop window. The site has worked without problems and the online ordering is great. It's easy to manage. We've just upgraded to V3.8 and plan to stay with Photostore in the future. The technical support has been faultless. I have no hesitation in recommending it.
Terry Runion: kachoozie.com
While I have only purchased this software a short time ago, I LOVE IT! . I only wish I had found it SOONER!
Marc-antoine Cloutier: somafoto.com
I try many time to make my own web site, with some free software, but i lost 1 year of work for nothing. Finnaly i find photostore by a friend to use this software for selling picture. I get photostore and only 30 minutes after, my website was on service, that's amazing check my site, i'm not a webmaster but i have good site.. Thanks Photostore.......
We started as a very small website with few new images per day. Today, we run Ktools on a full dedicated heavy duty server, process 1000's of images per day, sell images to many clients in the Middle East.
Ktools is capable of processing the content at lightning speed, display sharp and colourful images, automatically index keywords related to all content recieved from all our partner photo agencies.
We have made very small changes/enhancement to the current version, 3.6.3
I personally recommend Ktools application to online businesses looking to grow. This application stands next to the best content management systems currently available online.
Jos Sluiter: studiojoz.nl
Thank you for a great script and support. Photostore is very easy to run and maintain and contains some very nice features at an exceptional price.
I would highly recommend Ktools Photostore to anyone wanting to sell there own photography online with the minimum of effort.
Thanks and keep up the good work
Ktools is a great product and the support staff is excellent. They respond promptly, provide loads of info on their support site, and willing to help if you're having issues. Keep it up!
I have spent months looking for a solution to my web-site needs and have tried many out there. This is without doubt the best value product I have ever come across. The technical support and service is the best i've ever experienced (and i've used it a lot!) and for an amazing price. I am a complete novice, never touched html etc but within day's i was able to start personalising my site with the help of the guy's on the forum. I now have a site i love which could have cost me thousands! I am a customer for life. Thanks Guy's Keep up the good work!
Scorpionfish Underwater Photography
Photostore is an excellent product at an unbelievable price. It's easy to use straight out of the box and is very tweakable for those that want to customise their site
Good job KTools.
All I can say is Wow! Wow! Wow! After searching high and low for six months for a ready made web-based digital photo selling program, I am happy that I have purchased PhotoStore for my new ethnic celebrity photo site. With budget in mind and not wanting spend too much on a site built up from scratch, PhotoStore has been a god-send for my upstart company. Even other red carpet event photographers have commented that our PhotoStore solution is definitely a great way to go after viewing the site. For what PhotoStore has to offer in terms of public viewing of the site and purchasing digital download photos, it's right up there with WireImage, Getty, and other celebrity photo sites without the high costs of building and maintaining the site. The search function even works better than other celebrity photo sites that I will not mention.
Thank you! Thank You! Thank You! Ktools has saved me over $5000 in web upstart. Can't wait for the future upgrades.
Hi. just wanted to say how much we like Ktools, we have 2 very happy clients using this for 18 months + now, excellent software, many thanks.
Thomas Andersen: andersenfoto.net
I have used Ktools for almoust two years now and Iīm very happy for this solution. Great tool, who makes it easy to sell and show my pictures...
This is the best deal ever. The software is outstanding and the support is nothing but first class. Jon and Jeff go beyond the limits of what conventional support teams do and they do it well. Congrats and good luck with your business.
I wanted to thank your company for making a great product for us photographers. I have been searching for a long time for a software solution that meets my needs. It's one of the best products that I have purchased and it goes beyond what I truly expected from another software solution.
I really thought that I was getting something that was so so, rather, I received something that was worth every penny I spent and then some.
Your product has me at awww with alot of the features I NEEDED!!
I will highly recommend your product to other photographers without hesitation!!!!
I hope your company will have great success in the future. I know I will with the help of your software solution!
What can i say nothing but first class.

Hi there all, my name is Patrick Visser From www.asavistockshop.nl from the Netherlands.
My story about The Photo Store Scrip. Itís the best script ever.
A view years ago I started to make photo graphics. The need for promoting my work and or selling is became bigger and bigger. Ad first I bought a script in Germany and modified it. Worked fine but I still missed some thinks. Searching the Internet I soon found the Photo Store script. Tried the demo and soon I realized that this is what I needed.. I Also support is over the Hill. Itís a perfect Team and I want to advice all photographers to stop search and buy this one..
Thanks for the script my friends.
Congratulations to you on your software. This is magnificant. The backend as well as the frontend works almost flawlessly. The support you give with quick response time is so refreshing, something that is missing in the business world, customer servce, you have give. This is exactly what I was looking for. It is adaptable for customization and many different applications for use. Search engine optimization (seo) is set up very well. The ability to batch load, change categories, add content, all works very smoothly. I am very impressed and glad I bought this. I have the bundle so I cannot wait to get PhotoHost ready to launch. Thank you for your dedication to this software.

Ktools.com gives great customer service along with a great product. I am happy to have done business with them. The product and service is worth the money.
I am amazed of how easy was to customize my photostore site, I put an intro, change the header for a flash, add menus and pages, etc.. The functionality of the software is amazing, all my friends are still asking me about the software and they kepp telling me that seems so professional and nice. The people from support is always happy to help and friendly. Thanks Photostore
Whether you are looking for something to customize or run straight out of the box, for stock or event photography Ktoolís photostore is the perfect solution. I was able to customize my store with very little effort.
The user interface is very easy to navigate for both visitors and administrators. And it just keeps getting better with every upgrade, which are very easily installed.
The service I have received from Ktools has always been top notch, fast responses and solutions. More companies should be run in this manner.
Not to mention their hosting service for your site is second to none.
Keep up the great work guys.
I was looking for an out of the box, ready to go piece of software to allow me to sell photographs online. I'm very glad I made the choice to go with PhotoStore, as it gave me everything I was looking for, and a whole host of other features I hadn't thought of, but that are incredibly necessary.
I found the setup and configuration process very easy, even though I had to get Ktools to customise the software to work with my chosen payment processor in my country. The whole process took a matter of days to complete, and I am incredibly happy with the final product. The best part is that getting my first sale took less than a week!
Administration of the site is a breeze, every feature works perfectly, and the product is very polished. After Sales Support is incredible, with answers to queries often coming outside of normal working hours - it seems some of the Ktools staff never sleep!
If you're considering selling photographs online, dont hesitate - pick PhotoStore - you wont be sorry!
- Andrew Bray
This is great software, was very easy to install including the addons, I was up and running in 15 minutes with no problems.
I look forward to getting my site listed and gaining visitors.
Konradt Sinisa: skvart.com
I am very pleased with this script, it not only does what a photo site needs but it can be modified to fit your needs.
Without a doubt, KTools has the best support of any software company I've dealt with.
Stop Right here: Because youíre done shopping for this type of application. First and foremost their customer service is bar none TOP NOTCH.. Yeah 300.00 is some money, so I had shopped around for a pre-built site such as this one for more than 6 months. I was looking for a service that could be ran on my server space, not some one elseís. And I wanted to have control of customization, well Ktools is by far has the best application, the best service and they managed to get a ton of really killer little extra functions that make this that much better.
I launched my Store and didnít really publish it for a couple weeks, I had a few friends run some orders and I placed some my self. So for the customer this is an awesome layout.
The first weekend I published photos for sale I had outstanding sales results. And they continue to come in. In my first weekend I way more than paid for the cost of my store. The second weekend was unbelievable.
I will say that setup was pretty simple, because they did most of the setup for me. They rock!!! Once it was setup I dug into designing a new Theme, I will say the better you understand code, the more you can do... But make sure that if you do modify the code you have a backup of what ever you are changing, you never know.
I sell motocross photos and The function in this called "LightBox" is basically a place a registered user can store all their favorite photos. For me, I though this might be a little confusing to my customers so I modified it and called it "Trophy Wall" I say this because before I was going to purchase this store I was really hoping I could change that. I did and everything is great, but I will say this does have to be done though the code, and I would suggest that if you did this ONL CHANGE WHAT OTHERS CAN SEE!!! do not change anything in the code that references to the database or this function will no longer work. I understood this when I started modifying so I did not have any problems, So if you are unsure DONT CHANGE IT!!!
Trust me you are done looking just spend the money donít wait, because the longer you do the more money you are loosing.
Thanks Guys for the great service Randy
To anyone considering KTools as an add-on service or as a hosting company, I can't say enough about the incredible service and quick response times. I am not an "expert" to say the least, and the staff at KTools has made my online buisness an easy and profitable way to market my photography.
I love this program, solid, clean, professionally done and simple to install. the best part of this is that the support is there when you need it. No hassels and they actually respond with a real answer, no bull. Thanks a bunch guys for the new begining.
I would just like to say that PhotoStore made it so darn easy to set up a photography store. Couldn't have asked for a more integrated solution. The software has all the features I want, and it's well worth the price. Thanks for the great product.
Ellen Hayes: inspiring-designs.com
We are running PhotoStore v3.1.0 and absolutely love it! We added this as an adition to our main site because the staff was wonderful when we were hired to customize one for a client.
In essence the customer service is what sold us on this great program and we are glad they were so wonderful.
We can not say enough about the CS, the program is easy to learn, easy to customize and if you run into a place where you need to find answers or help someone is ready to assist in a nice and educational way.
Truly if you are looking for a one stop program that has almost every thing you can desire in the lines of photo / image stores then this is the program you should purchase.
We provide publishers and other customers with historical pictures, maps, photographs and images with no license fees, free image research, and low flat costs. To keep our prices low, we needed cost-efficient but sophisticated software to help us build our site. After trying other software with difficult code and nonexistent support, we found kTools' Photostore. The out-of-the-box solutions are great, but we have also customized a lot. Future updates (in the works) of PhotoStore promise great improvements without much additional investment. If you have any knowledge of PHP coding, you can also customize on your own. There is a lively forum, so support is often available by other kTools users. We have also been pleased to use kTools' hosting services. Thanks, kTools!
There is only one software I would recommend to anyone that wants to set up a complete photo selling website or a stock photo type of site. And that software is Photostore from Ktools.net.
Photostore is a breeze to use. The administration panel is intelligently designed and completely user friendly. As a matter of fact, I would even say, it is downright fun to work in. My partner and I were amazed at how easy it was use and get our site populated with photos in no time at all.
One of the most important points about Photostore is that, behind this software is a fast, friendly and serous support team. Every question or doubt I had about the software was answered quickly and clearly, making it easy to make any changes I wanted to do. And when I was really in doubt about a change I wanted to make, the support team did it for me, saving me time and money.
Ktools.net, with their wonderful software, Photostore, has made my dream of having my own photo selling website a reality. Thanks, Ktools.net! You are..... THE BEST!
I just stopped in to say thanks ktools for making my photography dreams come true! This service is by far one of the best services I have come across. Whenever you need customer support there is always someone available to assist you. Keep up the good work guys!
Thanks for your work, guys!I installed Photostore since sept. 2006 and it's exactly what I was looking for. Your assistance has been very effective to solve the few small problems I encountered while custumizing my installation, and I now have a photographer's website to my image, perfectly functional.Keeps on making great job!
This is by far the best tool I have seen out there for selling my photos. I have been using K-Tools for the last 8 months and have been able to upgrade my cameras three times by using this tool.
Keep up the good work and I can't wait for the new version
David Grossman: dnkphoto.com
The Ktools software is a very powerful program with nearly endless capabilities.
Software is very easy to use. Ktools is very responsive to my needs with a quick and professional response.
I am confident that your needs will be met when using Ktools as your sPhotoStore software program.
"The script is excellent. And very cheap, dollar wise. If you were to try and home grown an application like this, it would cost so much in time, it would not be worth it. The support is excellent. Ktools, is excellent in responding to any questions that I have had. Usually responds via email in less than an hour. Also, if you know any PHP, the script is easily modifiable, so you can tailor it to your needs."
Thanks for install the photostore today in a Sunday!!. Only 6 hours after receiving your install email e have my website almost in production!! you can check it at www.behindnature.com What can i say? Easy! Fast! Very professional! and the product have the rigth price! Continuation of your good work. Cheers
Thank you to Ktools.net for excellent service and great software script package. If you are looking for an automated website for selling photos you cant fail with this one.No coding skills needed.Easy to run and maintain.Good support team... Keep up the good work Ktools :)
I am very pleased with this script, it not only does what a photohost site needs but it can be modified to fit your needs. Next the support is excellent. Questions are answered as quickly as possible and the help is great. I once emailed asking if something was possible to change and support took the initiative and instead of emailing me with instructions on how to do so, they did it for me. Overall GREAT script and GREAT support, definitely worth the money.
PhotoStore 2.8 is a fantasic script! I have limited PHP expereince and installed it without any problems. I was also able to customize the templates to match my site design with minimal effort (the code is well written and well documented). This is truely a "turnkey" package. Everything you need is already in place and ready to go -- just add your photos. In addition, you get great support after the sale. If you're a photographer looking for an ecommerce solution, PhotoStore is it! You won't find a better value for your money."
It was with some trepidation that I made my purchase late one evening over the internet. I need not have worried, the transaction was completed almost instantaneously and the software downloaded to me within minutes.
Any queries I have had, usually relating to my own misunderstanding, have been dealt with promptly and courteously.
This is a superb piece of software, there is great strength in depth, it can be likened to an iceberg, what you see is a small part of the whole.
I really appreciate service and commitment to the continued improvement of the product based in part on feedback from customers.
Jonathan Farber, Photographer
Photostore has enabled me to reach customers that I have never been able to capture before. The interface is simple and easy to use, with some simple IT/website knowledge any photographer can begin selling their work and finally profit from the digital age of photography.
"I installed the site this morning and I have to say I am very impressed. Everything is working right out of the box . You did a very nice job on this. Well worth the investment. I look forward to working with you in the future."
Robert Gillis: GillisPhotos.com
Iíve been a professional computer programmer for nearly 20 years. When GillisPhotos.com was launched in early 2005, everything was created with a mix of Perl scripts to generate pieces of HTML code. Not rocket science, but adding galleries, new pages and photos was tedious and time consuming. Photostore proved to be a Godsend. With Photostore, customization is easy, updates and changes are a breeze, and adding photos and galleries is simple. In addition, Photostore has dozens of features designed specifically for photo sellers. Photostore allows us to concentrate on photography rather than coding and scripting. We HIGHLY recommend Ktools Photostore.
Thank you for a great script and support. Photostore is very easy to run and maintain and contains some very nice features at an exceptional price.
I would highly recommend Ktools Photostore to anyone wanting to sell there own photography online with the minimum of effort.
Thanks and keep up the good work.
