  1. Search button in the mobile app

    I would like to see some features in the mobile app. There is actually no way to search for tags/keywords/person etc. This is really annoying if you have thousands of photos which are all properly tagged. Even flickr and the synology ds photo app have this feature (and of course many more) in their app. I think its great that smugmug has an android app, but if this is version 3 and there is so little to do, maybe the apps should get some real love ;)

      • Forever Albums

        Allow users an option to pay a 'forever fee' to house photo albums. It could be done a payment plan for a certain amount of GB or TB amount.

        Someday when I am gone (I'm only 57 so I hope I have many more years) the photos will not just disappear into the abyss after I have tireless worked to scan photos from over 60 albums my mother lovingly put together for myself and my 5 siblings and our children and grandchildren. She is gone now and I've been 'tasked' with making sure the photos are shared but once scanned…

        • Pay what you want

          It would be great to offer a pay-what-you-want feature specifically for the pricing of the download.
          This should also include an option for minimum pricing.

          This concept has shown to be efficient especially with very diverse customers, such as schoolkids, students, workers and academics.
          Mostly it leads to follow the inner need for fair pricing.

          It is also be great in combination with charity promotions campaigns.

          • allow users to upload images to gallery featured image instead of choosing an already uploaded image.

            Instead of having to choose an already uploaded image for the folder/gallery featured image, allow users to upload images that aren't displayed elsewhere. This would be useful for uploading client images or coming soon images.

            • Option to include or exclude watermarks on downloads through app

              It would be really useful to have the option, within the "settings" for the iPad app, to choose whether or not to include your logo with your downloaded image. It's great to be able to access the original files when needed, but it's also really valuable for my business to have easy access to lower resolution watermarked images for publicity on Facebook.

              • integrate face recognition across all galleries!

                We use smug mug to store pictures from events across the country. Integrated face recognition (across all galleries) would help us to find all the photos related to one individual who has participated in many activities!

                • Offer the same print sizes/services that your print labs do. All of them.

                  We have a client who wants to order hundreds of 4x4 prints.
                  Our Smugmug site is connected to Bayphoto.
                  Bayphoto offers 4x4 prints.
                  Smugmug does not allow 4x4 prints.

                  We just lost a sale, Smugmug just lost a sale.

                  Bayphoto offers many print sizes that we cannot offer through our Smugmug site.

                  Is it really that difficult to allow all of the lab's print sizes to be printed through the Smugmug site?

                  • Please add option to import from Google Drive

                    You offer the ability to import from Google Photos but not from Google Drive. Google Drive makes it easier for me to organise photos and to import from here will help a lot.

                    • Save shopping carts on smugmug servers rather than in the user's browser

                      Currently shopping carts are saved on the user's browser. This means that a user can't login to a different computer and access their saved shopping cart. Further, there are issues with cookies and carts often get emptied arbitrarily. To avoid all this, the carts should just be saved on smugmug servers directly. Anytime someone logs in and starts a cart, these should be synced with the smugmug server. Then issues with cookies can be completely avoided, and users can update carts on any number of computers.

                      • Enable (sizeable) printmarks for downloads, disable printmarks for prints

                        Smugmug, please enable a function to easily enable printmarks for digital download purchases, and disable printmarks for prints.

                        I have a need to allow my customers to purchase digital downloads with a printmark for social media sharing, etc. (great for marketing). The printmark needs to be sized and positioned where it is visible and not easily cropped out. (Smugmug's current 1% size for printmarks makes them microscopic and illegible on web-resolution images).

                        However, there needs to be a simple function to disable printmarks on prints sold from the same gallery. Currently, Smugmug's workaround is to enable printmarks for the gallery…

                        • option to add a gallery to multiple packages at once, rather than other way around

                          When I add a gallery, I have to go in to each package I've set up, and add that gallery. I have sports galleries, and package options to choose different numbers of prints: a package for 10 prints, 15, 25, 50, 75 etc... packages for keepsakes- buttons, print combos etc...

                          It's extremely time-consuming for me to have to go into each package I've created and click through all of the folders etc to add one gallery- TO EACH PACKAGE. urgh.

                          Is there a way you can reverse engineer it, so that each gallery can choose what packages with which they…

                            I have had a number of requests from clients for calendars. I see that some of the vendors provide this service. It would be great if we could offer these to our clients.

                              • Add all contacts

                                Great site with only a few minor improvements to be great like Phanfare where I come from.
                                Add box to add all contacts in address book when sharing by email on website (and in iOS app later).
                                Right now, you have to click on one contact at a time. That option should have been there from the start like in Phanfare and should be easy for your team to implement.

                                Thanks.

                                    I would like to be able to share directly on Whatsapp.

                                    Whatsapp is the second most used sharing app after facebook!

                                    Thank you.

                                    • make it possible to see profits broken down per site that sales come from.

                                      At times, I have to share the profit with a client.
                                      As is now, I have to look through each sale to see what site it came from. I can only see that by the purchasers address.
                                      BUT there will come a time when the address will be of no use because there will be several sites in say NYC or Philly...
                                      I would like it that I can see how much each site is making per pay period. Also the profit estimate is not the same as the actual payment.

                                      • Allow us to have a say before you give our clients unnecessary refunds

                                        I would like to request that when my customers contact SmugMug in regards to their orders, that I am notified first before decisions are made by SmugMug to give them refunds. I have now had thousands of dollars of profits refunded to my clients, when I could have taken care of the situation and avoided the need for a refund. I would like a note put on my account to notify me of client contact before a refund is given. I understand your “satisfaction guarantee”, but am frustrated that you are dealing with my clients and not allowing me to…

                                        • Enable Java in order to run services from Sumo.com

                                          I have another website where I run a 3rd party service from Sumo.com

                                          The service is a pop up window/opt-in window allowing me to collect email address or run promotions among other things.

                                          Was disappointed when I realized I could not install
