  1. Client login / create account link / prompt to create account on "favorite" of any photo

    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 &…

    • Allow default lab product names to be customised

      Please allow us to customise the default lab product names into something more meaningful for our customers. Default names are not necessarily user friendly and can cause confusion. This feature would also allow us to match our current studio product names, pricelists and marketing materials to our online sales platform. At present it becomes very disjointed having different names online and is affecting sales.

      The current lab product names are very much geared towards fellow photographers, not customers.

      Thank you!

      • Loxley Colour products

        Loxley and I'm sure many other print labs provide some fantastic products which aren't available through SmugMug. It'd be great to see a lot of what's offered on Loxleys website provided through SmugMug

        • Meta property enablement for using "Facebook Insights" reporting

          Facebook provides reporting on like activity and like users, web domain user need to add a meta property to the root web page. This is not possible today with SmugMug. I would love to run "giveways" at Events that increase the "likes" on my main web page but to do so requires I see who liked at the event to draw names. Many more marketing opportunities if I have access to the facebook data via Insights.

          • Allow tweet embedding

            It would be great if you would allow tweet embedding. I would like to have this feature and take advantage of it on my SmugMug site - especially in SmugMug blog posts.

            • 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.

              • Loxley Colour 'Giftware' category to be added to Smugmug

                Currently there are no UK providers of giftware such as mugs, mouse mats etc.

                These are big sellers for me, and at the moment i am having to sell and advertise them off my website.

                Smugmugs rival companies have print labs that accept orders on these products.

                Now Loxley Colour has started accepting direct orders on them there is no reason Smugmug cannot integrate this into the ordering system.

                If this doesn't happen I think i'll be forced to switch providers!

                • Please give us the option to use to the original caption/keyword tool.

                  The original caption/keyword tool, which loaded all photos at once and allowed both bulk addition and photo-specific addition of captions and keywords all at once, was extremely efficient for me. I was able to add captions and keywords applying to all photos through the form at the top, then scroll through and quickly adjust/embellish captions and add unique, photo-specific keywords. It was so fast!

                  With the new Organizer, I can bulk-add captions and keywords to a group of photos, but there is no fast way for me to adjust the metadata on the photo level. I have to page through…

                  • Please, offer the option to add a thumbnail preview display on top/bottom of the Smugmug slideshow.

                    When galleries open directly on the Smugmug slideshow, it is useful to have an overview of what's ahead via thumbnail previews on top or bottom of the slideshow.

                    • add a new access feature

                      I would like you to add a feature allowing a smugmug site owner to give a special access password to an event organiser to allow them to download unwatermarked photos from a gallery free of charge, whilst still maintaining the watermarks and price lists for the photos in the gallery for the general public. This is useful for performance events where the organiser might require shots for promo or publication and is not generally expected to pay - and they don't want to download ALL the photos in the gallery using that feature of SM.

                      • Make captions more visible to viewers

                        In the "New SmugMug" in Gallery View, the captions display below the navigation buttons, and the images fill the entire screen real estate vertically, so you have to scroll down to see the captions below each image. In the old SmugMug, the captions were immediately below the image and the image was slightly smaller, so the caption would be visible by default as someone was navigating through the gallery. Viewers might not know there is a caption to be seen and might not scroll down to see it. This is annoying to me, when I'm sharing my albums with people,…

                          I'm on satellite internet and need a upload scheduler, so as not to go over my daytime bandwith.

                              Need to ability to customize EVENT pages just like we are able to customize the Entire website, folders and galleries. They default to stretch, it looks really bad for center-align based websites.

                                Currently when viewing photos using the SmugMug smartphone app, captions are not visible. I like to use the app for bird and butterfly identification so captions are important.

                                • Purchase add-on items only if you purchase a package first

                                  I use SmugMug to sell school photos. I would like to have add-on items that can only be purchased if they purchase a package. For example: some parents want to order extra 4x6's, so I add 4x6 print to the school photo Pricelist (that otherwise has nothing but 1 digital download - all other items are packages), but then other parents see it and ONLY order a 4x6.

                                    • Batch copy option on the Organize Page

                                      Please, add the batch copy option on the Organize Page beside "move" and "collect" when you drag and drop pics to allow users to create a physical copies to other galleries.

                                      In particular I need it to create two galleries for selling pics. I do not wanna sell all the pics I upload on Smugmug and I also wanna create a gallery for EU customers and another one for "US - rest of the world" customers so I can use different labs. You can not do that using the collecting option because pics retain the original gallery settings.

                                      • Instagram Integration

                                        Highly suggest you add Instagram support to either the website or just the SmugMug app at the least. Instagram is actually a really good advertising/networking tool, and honestly no support might be a reason for me to leave Smugmug. I've been happy besides that, but it's something your competitors do have. Don't mean to sound rude, I would much rather stay here. Thank you!

                                        • Provide a way to make GLOBAL watermark changes for galleries

                                          I've recently rebranded and am now having to go through each of my old galleries and change the watermark so I can have a consistent logo and brand message across my website. Select gallery -- select all images -- click wrench -- select Watermark -- choose new watermark -- save new watermark -- close window. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. SO much wasted time here when I should be out shooting, right?!?!

                                          Thanks for listening and also thanks for the great website!!
