  1. 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…

    • 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/

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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…

            • 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…

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  -------------

                  Allow Stock Wall Backdrops to display photos on, in a framed format to help viewers visualize framed art hanging at their location. Have a variety of wall choices from urban loft to rustic cabin to boardroom etc.

                  • Set up a recurring payment for a specific user and tie it to a specific gallery. The subscriber can view his favorites for a monthly fee

                    I would like to be able to offer a service that sets up a recurring monthly payment for a specific user and ties it to a specific gallery of "favorites". The "subscriber" can view his "favorites" for a monthly subscription fee. The "subscriber" can add or subtract photos from the gallery as desired, but the monthly fee, (say $5.00) recurs automatically until it is "cancelled" by the subscriber.

                    • 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...

                      • 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:
                        https://forums.adobe.com/message/7526687#7526687

                        • Track social media shares in the statistics.

                          I would like to know when pictures are shared using the "Share" icon. Specifically:

                          Which pictures were shared?
                          How many times were they shared?
                          When were they shared?
                          Where were they shared (Facebook, Twitter, via Email, etc.)?
                          Who shared them (if public)?

                          As far as I can tell, this functionality does not currently exist.

                          Thank you.

                            • 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

                              • remove the 100 photo limit on rss gallery feeds

                                Remove the 100 photo limit on RSS gallery feeds - used to be able to add &ImageCount=x to the url to increase the number of images returned, as well as adding &PageCount=y, to return "y" images per page until "x" images.

                                This no longer works - really would be useful!

                                • 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.

                                    • More customization features in the SmugMug gallery style.

                                      This gallery style currently has only two customization features: Spacing between photos, and Thumbnail size. But I miss for example the possibility to customize the Shopping icon.

                                      • Client Access Code to Access Specific Galleries

                                        Allow us to put access codes on our galleries. As an event photographer, I could give people cards with the special access code. When they visit my site, go to 'client access', enter their code, go directly to that gallery.

                                        For one, it saves us from having to get their emails and second, they don't have to sign up for another account.

                                        • support non-image files to be uploaded such as PDFs.

                                          Manually attaching meta-data to many individual images and /or larger sets of written data does not always work. Sometimes too much or too tedious. For example, when the images constitute the related content for instructions, history or other written material. Or when there is pure data (e.g. statistics, measurements) that should accompany the images.
