  1. Add a displayable 'folder description' to folders

    We badly need a 'description' field in Folders to provide summary information to viewers.

    The workaround - to customise each folder with a text content block - is simply not workable for sites with many folders as it's a lot of work, and risks breaking the uniform look and feel.

    This is one feature which is edging me back to Zenfolio... Please please add this feature.

    • Mobile APP for each gallery to send our clients

      It would be nice to be able to send our clients a APP once their gallery is done. That way they can easily share with friends and family.

      • Add Customer Review and Ratings

        As the internet continues to evolve there should be greater consideration for customer reviews on our SM site to help with SEO. Customers should have the ability to not only comment on our FB, Google local, Yelp, etc pages but on our website as well. The integration would benefit the ranking for the site owner to be recognized.

        • 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.

          • Add email notification when photos and/or an entire gallery have been downloaded

            I have clients that download an entire gallery after I have given them a password. I would like to be notified by email when they download the gallery so I can delete what was downloaded or change the password.

              • Plugin for Capture One

                PLUGIN for CAPTURE ONE

                it would be great if you guys could develop a plugin for Capture One Pro just like the one for Lightroom.

                Capture One Pro is being doing good progress and photographers are happier nowadays with Capture One than with Lightroom

                http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3818616

                actually the main thing that prevents me from making the jump from LR to Capture One is the lack of smugmug plugin, because uploading & syncing from the edition software is so comfortable!

                Thank you!

                • Provide a COMPLETE site-wide image backup function

                  Allow owners to download all image files from selected/all galleries, complete with ALL metadata embedded.

                  This would support the Smugmug population who do not use a Lightroom-based upload process. And those who take advantage of Smugmug's agility to maintain their captions & keywords on the fly.

                  Effectively, this would replace the functionality of the Legacy third-party app AlbumFetcher. For selected/all galleries, it downloaded a copy of every image file with ALL of its metadata EMBEDDED -- whether having been originally uploaded OR MAINTAINED WITHIN SMUGMUG. Specifically, it:

                  (1) allowed the bulk download of any number of galleries at once (select…

                  • Apply "Download All" to a Folder

                    Hello ,

                    Just a request.

                    Would love to have the feature to apply the "download all" option to a folder.

                    I have many many galleries under specific folder each year (example 2016) that I need one person with password access to have the ability to download those images for publications, media etc. Others in the organization view the photos only for their input. Having to apply the "download all" option to every gallery is not desirable.

                    Would work for weddings or events as well. You may want to give the Bride/Groom option for downloading all photos that are in many…

                    • 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...

                          I would like a feature that allows me to list all of my galleries/folders with their complete names - and then print the list if I have the need.

                          • Global setting to disable "Visitor Shopping Cart"

                            Currently to disable the shopping cart you have to effect the change to each gallery on an individual basis. You can use the bulk gallery settings changer, but this can't be used across folders so still takes quite a few minutes to do.

                            When you have multiple people adding galleries to an account some new ones may slip through the net with shopping turned on.

                            TL;DR Give us a global setting for the shopping cart.

                              • Downloading all the returned photos from a keyword search

                                Downloading all the returned photos from a keyword search. Currently, after I get the photos from a keyword search, I have to click on 1 photo at a time to go to the specific photo gallery, download it, then return to the search list and do it again for the next one. This is very inefficient since I'm doing a photo collage in Photoshop for my son's football which has more than 200 photos to download, one at a time.

                                • Revised Lightbox layout for title and captions

                                  Currently, the lightbox organization has the title and caption hidden on the bottom left of the lightbox, with popup options, scrolling, and other fairly ugly features. In its coding, this title and caption area is in the same horizontal "block" that the Buy button, Share button, Tools button, etc. are in, which makes any CSS customization nearly impossible. It also makes vertical separation of the lightbox tools panel and the title/caption basically impossible.

                                  I would propose that the organization of the lightbox be altered slightly, allowing much easier customization and control of both the titles/captions and the lightbox tools panel.…

                                  • Allow customer to download free lo-res image but buy higher res images without a coupon

                                    I would like the ability to offer customers a way to download a low-res web image without having to add to cart and check out, while still having the ability for them to order higher res images at a cost (by adding to the cart) from a single gallery.
                                    i.e. customers pre-pay at an event and go to the site to download their web image.

                                    The only way I found to do that was creating two galleries; one allowing downloads of images I loaded as 640x480, and one with the full size images and the cart turned on. By doing…

                                    • Allow Visitors To Change Sort

                                      Is it possible (either currently or in the future) to have a dropdown box that allows customers to change the default sort order?

                                      I like my photos to be in chronological order by default, but sometimes I add photos from the past, so naturally they are further down the "feed". But my visitors do not know there is anything new if it isn't at the top of the "feed". I know I could set the sort order to be "uploaded" but I don't want that to be the default. I want visitors to come...and then select "Sort by Latest Added"…

                                      • Organizer --"undo" button

                                        Please provide a way to undo moving a photo within a gallery (or between galleries). I moved a photo and realized I accidentally had another one chosen as well. I needed to put both photos back in their original place, but couldn't remember where they had been. I needed the photos in their original order and there was no way to undo my mistake! Now I have to ask the client to review their gallery again and pick out photos they want me to put in an album all over again.

                                        • 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.
