  1. Automatic content tagging

    Google has recently raised the bar when it comes to auto tagging pictures. Their algorithms are now able to identify a wide variety of things from animals to people's faces to items in the picture. It would really be fantastic if SmugMug would either license the technology to do this (preferable) or implement their own.

        • improve SEO

          Smugmug does an okay job with SEO, but there are some things that are missing that either I am not finding or Smugmug is not aware/does not care about. Some of these are advanced SEO tools, but it is ludicrous to me that they do not exist even as options to customers who are familiar with some basic coding.

          1. Accelerated Mobile Pages to be compliant with Google (AMP) - or at least a way to customize websites for mobile view. My website ends up scrambled when I try and customize for mobile.

          2. Canonical Tags

          3. Work with GoDaddy…

          • Zoom in on photos in iOS app (pinch or double-tap)

            In the SmugMug app please make it so we can double tap or do the finger pinch to zoom in and out on our photos, like we do in the native phone camera app. Thank you! ❤️

              • Save HEIC / HEIF photos to SmugMug

                Currently the iOS app converts photos saved in Apple's new HEIC format into a JPG image, and then uploads that. If I go to download the photo, I get a JPG back. If I had deleted the photo on my phone, I would have lost the HEIC photo.

                When will SmugMug support HEIC format, now that Apple has made it the default on iOS 11? Without SmugMug supporting it, I would have to convert to JPG, defeating the purpose (and benefit) of shooting in HEIC.

                I would hope this is on the roadmap, as others like Google Photos have already…

                • Batch Download Option

                  Batch Download

                  It would be great to use the site map to check the galleries and folders of galleries that could be downloaded all at once. Having to go gallery by gallery is incredibly tedious.

                  • Disallow Screenshots Of Our Images Using Cell Phones

                    People taking screenshots of our photos is a huge problem. SmugMug needs to do more to combat this problem. Watermarks work great, but so many people don't care about them. Plus, there's apps and software that remove watermarks. I don't know how many times I have seen someone post on social media a screenshot of a photo of themselves from my website.
                    I know there is technology with some apps, and I'm pretty sure websites as well, that don't allow your cell phone to take a screenshot. This technology needs to be applied to our SmugMug websites.

                    • Why don't you make it easier for non-Smugmug users to make comments on photos.

                      I email friends by photos on Smugmug but hardly any ever make comments using the comment icon at the bottom right of the photo. If they make a comment, and many do, they just email me the comment.
                      Why don't you make it easier for non-Smugmug users to make comments on photos. The comment section could be more user friendly and it would be used much more by friends to visit Smugmug.

                      • Gallery settings

                        I think you should be able to change settings from the app, or a web browser on your phone. For example I need to change my gallery settings to show the filenames, because by default it’s hidden. I can’t do this from a mobile device on the website, or the app. Also, would be nice if you could generate gallery download links from the app, or on mobile device web browser.

                          Basic gallery settings can be updated from within the iOS, Android, and mobile web apps. Gallery/Folder name, description, visibility and accessibility can be set.

                          I’ll leave this partially complete since it doesn’t offer all of the options mentioned in the feature request. We most likely won’t add every setting into the mobile versions, but we would like to add the most useful settings. Feel free to leave comments and let us know which additional settings you’re looking for.

                        • Improve the Text Block Editor

                          This is a request to consolidate all the piecemeal requests for a real text editor in Text Blocks. I just finished building a Page-heavy site, and was surprised to discover that nearly every block of text needed to be built in HTML. Even simple formatting such as bulleted lists and mail-to links cannot be accommodated in a Text Block. I've seen first-hand how this deters new subscribers. See:

                              • Make privacy modes not mutually exclusive

                                As of today, the privacy mode (as specified in Security & Sharing) is one of essentially five modes coming from the different Visibility/Access setting: Public, People I Choose, Password, Unlisted, Private. Apart from finding rather confusing the way these are set through these two settings (is it only me?!), I find that it would be much much clearer and flexible to have four *independent* settings:

                                - Public / Everyone

                                - People I Choose

                                - People with Password

                                - People with Link

                                The first should override the others but none of the last three should override another one in the same…

                                • Frames to canvas

                                  I recently found something that for most of my images (and for others I
                                  think) may be useful:
                                  can we have an option of deliver also frames to the canvas? If we use non
                                  traditional giclee canvas wrapping, the sides of the tableau are white and,
                                  for some clients, this looks more like an unfinished canvas.
                                  This is the detail that can make the difference between smugmug and other vendors.

                                  • More fine art print sizes

                                    I see various fine art print papers, and I applaud you for that - however none of them offer 8x12 or 10x15 sizes. The 2x3 aspect ratio is very common with digital photos now, and is the size of a full frame sensor. Why force me to crop my images?

                                    Sadly, this makes the fine art print papers of no benefit to me.

                                    • Let us define the settings for Event Favorites Galleries

                                      Create a Parent Child Folder Relationship with Event Gallery Favorites

                                      I deliver 1000 images to couples, their family member and vendors using the Events System. Through this system, I set the parent galleries to allow for downloading the images using a no password because passwords don't work.

                                      When the clients then make a list of their favorite 100 plus images, smugmug creates a new Events gallery in the Events Folder. The Events folder settings defaults to basic Smugmug gallery settings (making the gallery searchable and public) and changing the download settings so that you cannot download the images. As a…

                                      • Show the filename on the confirm order placement screen

                                        A suggestion for a feature request:

                                        In the final order review screen you do display a thumbnail image, but you do NOT display the file name along with the thumbnail. It would be very helpful if you displayed the filename on the final order confirmation screen.

                                        btw…you do display the filename AFTER the order is placed. It should be pretty easy to display the file name on the prior screen.

                                        Looking forward to seeing this implemented soon.

                                        • Allow multiple passwords for Galleries and Folders

                                          I'd like to give someone password access to an individual Gallery without giving them access to other Galleries and without having to remove access to others by changing the password.
