Our Photo Library

Photosymbols is a unique photo library for everyone making Easy Read information. Our symbols are based on photos so they're colourful and easy to recognise. The main characters are acted by models with learning disabilities.

A subscription gives you 12 months access. You can use the pictures as much as you like in documents, websites and presentations. We add new images each month so you're always up-to-date.

Easy Read Templates

Templates help you make great looking Easy Read, with layouts for booklets, questionnaires, newsletters, posters, meeting information and more.

It's easy to replace text and pictures, add a logo and change the colour theme to suit your own style. All templates come in MS PowerPoint format because of the good Desk Top Publishing features - for example, pictures and text boxes don't move around like they do in MS Word.

What's New?

What's New?

A new image browser makes it easy to find the right picture - with sort, categories, tags and a powerful new search.

Photosymbols now have transparent backgrounds so you don’t have a white box around the picture. Copy and Paste them onto colour backgrounds or overlap pictures to make your own combinations. They’re also available in high resolution.

Add pictures to your Favourites and see thumbnails of Related Pictures when you browse. It’s all designed to make it just that little bit easier to match words and pictures.
