  1. Client login / create account link / favorite any photo in a gallery

    Several people have requested some version of a client login, but I'm creating a new request to get more specific about how it should work.

    1) Provide a link to sign in / create account so that any visitor can either sign in or create a new account right from the home page or navigation bar (not required to receive an invitation from us, and not required to go back and find the "event" email we sent them months ago if they want to log back in).

    2) We receive notification whenever a new account is created, including name &…

      • Have Carousel Be a Gallery Style Display Option

        It would be amazing to be able to use carousel instead of collage or the other gallery display options, without having to create a new page, set the display to a specific gallery, etc. It would be great to just change a gallery from Collage style to Carousel with the click of 2 buttons.

        • Allow for re-ordering the carousel photo sequence.

          Currently, I must select the photos for the carousel in the order I want them to appear. If I would like to emphasize several significant images so that they are "first up" when you open my page I would have to delete the contents of the carousel and pick in the order I want them to appear. This prevents me from later editing the order of the sequence which is frustrating. If I could drag photos on the vertical images scroller on the right and simply drag them up or down, that would make more sense...

          • Client Bulk Gallery Download with Watermark

            This is an extension of the Bulk Gallery Download idea already requested .... Many of my clients use facebook to share my photos. However, they want the watermark and size to be web friendly (ie. dimensions smaller than 1600 for a quick upload). The watermark tool on smugmug is useful, but to be able to download the entire gallery with specific dimensions and with watermark option would be extremely useful and enticing to a pro. Thank you!

              • Wedding Album Design and orders via smugmug would be very helpful

                I like that I can do all my print sales via smugmug. It saves me time. I would also like to see a way for my clients to design and purchase their own wedding albums and books.

                • Simulator for ordering

                  I would still like to see a simulator, where the image is overlaid on the product they are ordering. This way they can see exactly what they are getting. Fine art America / Pixels.com does this and my local labs use the Roes Ordering System that shows a simulator. I am sure you all can figure out a way.

                  • Add Gallery Sharing Through Email

                    At the moment, SmugMug allows one to share a specific photo via email but there is no way to share a gallery or gallery link. Smugmug emails don't make it clear whether what is being shared is a single picture or an entire gallery, and when one clicks on the picture (if any) in the email, one is taken to that picture, not to the first picture in the gallery.

                    Smugmug does almost everything better than Picasa Webalbums (as was), but not the emails sharing galleries.

                    It would be lovely, when sharing an entire gallery with friends or family or…

                    • Display the Gallery's Privacy Setting Outside of the Thumbnail

                      The gallery descriptor (e.g. "private", "unlisted", etc) currently covers the gallery thumbnail.

                      This is unfortunate, it would be nice to see the centre of the gallery thumbail in homescreen, e.g. with descriptor perhaps at top, either in words or symbols.

                      I know that third parties visiting one's homepage can't see the gallery descriptors but, for the site's owner, it would be nice for the thumbnails to be properly visible.

                      • end-to-end encryption

                        In the post Snowden area we know that each and any data communication is listened by some Computer device. Filtering pictures and video streams for specific content is possible today. The possibilities are at hand for governemt agencies, private organisations and hackers - as recent illegal publications of celebrity pix haved proved. I propose to encrypt all Pictures/Videos on the client's device, transmit the files encrypted to SmugMug and store the data encrypted. The SmugMug customer should have full control who can access his content. One possible technical solution is AES 256 Standard encryption.

                        • Customize slideshows

                          It would be great to have the ability to create a slideshow from just a few photos in a gallery (and the ability to remove certain images from slideshows) or across galleries and have them linkable back to their gallery of origin. This would allow for shorter more targeted slideshows.

                          • Additional Acrylic Products

                            We want to suggest to add more US pro labs to the SmugMug options. We are looking for products like:

                            - Acrylic Prints
                            - Acrylic Photo Blocks

                            There are several vendors that come to our mind that might be a great addition:

                            acrylicpress.com
                            adoramapix.com

                              When a client 'hearts' their favorite photos the photo goes to 'grey', even when selected the larger image on the right side of the screen still has that ugly grey overlay. In order to see the image clearly they have to click the image a third time for it to fill the entire screen. The only photos that are clear are the images that the client doesn't like, which I feel makes no sense. A fix that I suggest would be to place a star or a heart underneath each image (and the file name or number would be helpful…

                              • navigate in editor

                                This is a simple feature that would make editing and customising so much easier. When you are in the editor/customise menu where you can edit content of the page. It would be great to be able to actually navigate to different pages instead of publishing then navigating to the page on your site just to go back into editor menu.

                                There have been times I have wanted to create a page but I have to publish it and make a link for it so that I can actually get into the editor menu to add content. Not ideal at all…

                                  • Sharing Directly with SmugMug/Guest Account Holders

                                    I would like a way to share a gallery/page/folder with someone and have it appear on their Dashboard (Shared with Me) page without having to set that gallery/page/folder to Private Sharing.

                                    Use case: a gallery/folder set to Access: Unlisted (People with link) (because some people won't create a guest account). I would like to be able though to share/give access to this gallery to people who have a guest account, so that they can see it in their dashboard.

                                    Currently, this is not possible. Which means that a guest account can use their dashboard to see what galleries have been…

                                    • Manually sort Galleries similar to the "old" platform

                                      On the "old" platform it was simple to move the galleries manually. They would automatically post based on date created and you could arrow to re-arrange them. With this "new" platform it is impossible to manually put the newer galleries at the top with out having to re-select each gallery in the exact order that you need them to go in. A MAJOR WASTE OF TIME and complete DOWNGRADE.

                                      • allow us to minimize upload window and work while we wait.

                                        I'd like to be able to minimize the upload screen so I can work on other images or albums while I wait for uploads. Every other site I can think of allows users to do this. It takes quite a while to upload a slew of images, and I'd like to be able to be productive while I wait...obviously, without disrupting the upload process.

                                        • make the buying experience easier for the client.

                                          Instead of the default 6x4" print option on display when a customer has clicked through to 'Buy from this gallery', have a page that allows customers to click on multiple images and make multiple diverse print and download selections from that same page.

                                          Currently they have to go back and forth far too much. They have to click on the 'change product' button (which isn't very clear to people what this even is) to select eg. 7x5" print, then repeat this process to 'change product' to eg. 10x8", then go back and UNSELECT the previous 7x5" clicked options to then…
