  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 ;)

    • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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?

            • Improve Mobile App

              The mobile app is missing many obvious features:
              - Ability to buy prints from the mobile app
              - Ability to organize galleries and edit photos from the mobile app
              - Ability to see and edit bio, etc, from the mobile app

              The mobile version of the site in the browser has some of these features, and yet it keeps popping up with an ad for me to use the app instead, which does NOT have these features. You shouldn't be pushing a mobile app instead of the site if it doesn't do most of the things that the site does.

              • living room display photos

                The idea is to add a feature where the client can see at the same time he is viewing a photo, a photo of a living room where he can see the photo placed. And every time he views another photo he can see it how it woould look like.
                This will definitely boost up sales.
                Cheers.

                • Allow Visitors to Rate Photos, then Sort Galleries by their Rating

                  Please offer a sorting and rating system. It would be great if as the clients are looking through their images they could rate each and then sort by the rating. This would make it easier to cull through the images. I know that they can click on the stars, but it doesn't seem like they can be sorted.

                  • 2017 Calendars

                    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.

                    Many thanks for your consideration,
                    Tracy

                    • 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.

                      • Sync Lightroom Folder/Gallery hierarchy to SmugMug

                        I've spent several years setting up a hierarchy of folders in Lightroom. I'd like to easily replicate this hierarchy on Smugmug.

                        As far as I can tell, I can sync my SmugMug Folders, Galleries and Photos to Lightroom. But I cannot sync in the other direction

                          • Make it possible to modify the order when set to proof delay.

                            Allow orders to be modified during proof delay (isn't that the whole point of it?).

                            Photographers should have the ability to change orders with customer's approval. If someone orders 100 prints and chooses glossy instead of matte, I should be able to change that.
                            If they choose 8x10, I should be able to modify it to 8x12 because of poor cropping. Heck, I'd rather absorb the $1 different than make my client spend anther hour redoing the order and give them the larger size for the same price.

                            I've heard the argument that you can't charge something different than the…

                            • Have "Make this Gallery Custom" be default instead of "All Galleries"

                              I have a question and a suggestion. The suggestion is to change the customization of galleries to make "Make This Gallery Custom" the default position rather that "All Galleries." I propose that most text usage will be intended for one gallery, not all, and that, as happened to me twice, I changed the lead-in text on all of my galleries accidentally when I had intended it for the new gallery I was working on. My question is related: Is there a way for me to change that default on my account even though, because I was burned twice before, I…

                                  • Allow sync of all galleries to the Smugmug App on mobile devices

                                    I prefer the look of the SmugMug app to the iOS Photos app for viewing images but I often find myself in areas where data coverage isn't great and would like to be able to pull up my SM galleries on my iPad or iPhone without needing to have a data connection.

                                    Currently I have to go into each gallery one at a time and select it for offline viewing. The old SM app had the capability of syncing all galleries at once.

                                    Please add capability of syncing all galleries with a single function.

                                    • 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!
