  1. Allow Visitors to Download only a Selection of a Galleries Photos

    Currently visitors can download a single photo or download the entire gallery but they cannot download a subset of select photos of a gallery (for example: if they want to download 15 photos out of a gallery of 500 photos). Please add the ability for visitors to select which photos they would like to be included as part of the zip download.

    • Ability to charge a fee for viewing galleries

      Some of my albums get hundreds of thousand of views when initially posted. I would like to be able to charge a flat fee/donation e.g. $1 to view a specific album or a group of albums. E.g. Three albums from a three day event, $1. After the fee/donation is paid, I would like a unique password generated that works just with that users email. A password that they can use every time they go back to the album.

      • Automatically convert TIFF to high-quality JPEGs

        [Admin update 4/7/15: merged duplicate requests and votes for TIFF support]

        We have a mixture of TIFF and JPEG images and don't always save a JPEG copy of the the TIFF files.

        I don't want to have to convert my TIFF images to JPEGS before uploading and would love if this could be done automatically.

        ----------

        We would like to be able to upload CMYK TIFFs to site. Som eof our clients will print or buy directly but do not want to convert back from RGB JPEG to CMYK TIFF. The RGB JPEG is also greatly reduced in size which…

          • Upload sound files

            Enable sound file uploading. Mp3, mp4, ogg, and wav files.

            I keep a couple albums of my daughter growing up. It includes pictures, video clips, and simple sound clips.

            • Gallery download stats

              It would also be great to be able to see download stats so we know how many times (and possibly the IP addresses) a download was accessed.

              • Make it possible to cancel the order when set to proof delay.

                I catch mistakes in my customer's carts all the time. Proof delay gives me time to communicate with my customer. However, once it has been established that yes - a customer made a mistake, I have to spend my precious time writing e-mails or making phone calls to smugmug or bayphoto. I would like a less time consuming way to cancel an order - like a button?

                • 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 &…

                    We released released one part of this Feature Request: The Client Area. Since this request goes a lot further I’m going to leave it open and mark this as “Started”.

                    The Client Area takes our Private Sharing feature to the next level by consolidating the photos you’ve shared with a client in one easy-to-find location on your SmugMug website. No longer do they need to keep track of any links you email them.

                    Portfolio and Business account holders can see this new client area at XXXX.smugmug.com/client. Just replace “XXXX” with your SmugMug nickname. You can also add a link to the client area in your navigation menu.

                    See more at http://news.smugmug.com/2015/05/01/new-feature-client-area/

                  • Clickable images in Carousel

                    Provide users the capability to take a closer look at a pic in the Carousel by clicking on it and pulling up the Gallery or L.B.

                    • Client Login screen should have a background picture from their gallery

                      Hi, when I send a gallery to a client, the home page where they are asked to enter the password, I should have an option to put one image from their gallery as the background image. This will give the feeling of a personalized website
                      So every client login page would have a different image, from their own gallery.
                      Thanks.

                        • Separate "Download Buttons": Download One and Download All can be turned on independently

                          I would REALLY WANT the ability pick which way photos can be downloaded, 1 at a time or in mass, when I set up a gallery. I take a lot of photos as a community service to two local high schools and post them to galleries. I don't mind someone downloading a few photos of themselves or friends but I would rather not make it easier in all instances for an entire gallery to be downloaded at once.

                          • For Pro's, Send the Download All Emails from Me

                            I'm 100% behind this, my commercial customers expect an email from me - and a professional one at that. Not mentioning other photographers who are "regular guys" and offering the help of "support heroes". I'm the person they turn to for support as they are paying me. This needs to change fast and there's no way it could be difficult. IF IT is tricky to customise the email to suit each smugmug client then make it a generic email. Something along the lines of...

                            • Logout button for guest-users

                              I have a gallery visible only for people that I choose.
                              So when one of them logs in with their newly created guest accounts and later wants to log out again… there is no chance to do that directly on my page. They actually have to go to smugmug.com <http://smugmug.com/> and logout from there - which is rather impractical considering they come in to visit a special gallery and not to manage their own galleries. And it is not really obvious that one has to do it this way either.
                              Is there any chance to improve on this…

                              • Match the design of the shopping cart & checkout screen to that of the ordering process.

                                The ordering process is easy and beautiful but it is quite jarring going from ordering a print (or other product) to viewing the shopping cart. It looks terrible and outdated. The UI is completely different than the rest of the ordering process, and it's confusing our customers. I've had multiple clients mention this problem. The shopping cart should look and feel like the rest of the ordering process. The ordering process needs to be seamless.

                                • Option to Upload to Beginning or End (Top or Bottom) of a Gallery

                                  Currently, all new uploads are placed at the end (or bottom) of a gallery when a gallery is set to be arranged by Position (manually). For small galleries, uploading to the bottom is OK, because going into the Organizer and re-arranging is fine. However, for large galleries, having to scroll, wait, scroll, wait, scroll, can be annoying and time-consuming just to re-arrange the photos.

                                  It would be great if there was a way to upload to the beginning (or top) of the gallery when set to manual.

                                  • Add gallery setting in Lightroom plugin to include/not include person data

                                    Now that Lightroom 6/CC allows users to tag faces, generating "person" keywords, please add a feature to the SmugMug Lightroom plugin that allows us to select in each gallery's settings whether to include or exclude person keywords when we publish to SmugMug.

                                    This will allow us to tag faces for easy finding in Lightroom, with the option for keeping names confidential for public SmugMug galleries should we need them.

                                    The API exposes keywordType property now, and this Adobe Lightroom SDK Forum post includes information on how this data can be accessed:

                                      • Guest Upload Acccess through Smug Mug APP

                                        I would love to see a way for guests to upload pictures to a gallery via the Smug Mug APP.

                                        I have a Mother In-law that has guest access to a gallery on mine but she cant upload her photos from an event that included us that she took with her IPhone. instead she has to download them from the Cloud and then manually enter them with the guest upload URL. this seems a bit complicated for something that seems could be an easy development fix.

                                        Is there a way the Development team could integrate that into the next update/patch?

                                        • One-click upload to Shutterfly, Snapfish, etc.

                                          I often would like to build a print photo book (or other hard copy options) from third party sites like Shutterfly, SnapFish, etc. Given my photos are already available in a SmugMug gallery, I would really like to be able to upload photos from SmugMug directly to these third party sites with a single click.

                                          Now the process requires downloading the photos (or starting with the whole catalog) locally, using the third party site's uploader (which is rarely as nice as SmugMug's), and trying to relocate the photos I had already identified in the SmugMug gallery.

                                          I think there is…
