    • 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…

      • 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.

        • Add a 'Filter by' function to image galleries.

          I often see an option in more modern website templates, (wordpress etc) where you may have a large gallery of EG flowers, but you want to help visitors to easily see and choose between types. The gallery can be populated with preset titles, (that act like clicking on a keyword) view Red Flowers, Purple Flowers, Yellow Flowers, Blue Flowers, Most Popular or View All. Clicking on any of these options will quickly clear all images from the screen except your chosen colour.

              • Line breaks when cutting an pasting text

                For the love of humanity, why on earth do you not honor line breaks when cutting and pasting text into a text block? This is not a FEATURE request, it's insane that you do not do this.

                Please allow pasting of text as it was saved, with <br> or however everyone else IN THE UNIVERSE honors line breaks in the clipboard.

                • 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:

                  • Need to be able to order different pricelists from the same gallery.

                    I cannot have customers choose "photos from this gallery," because the photos in a gallery have different price lists. That means I am going to have to explain to customers that, even though the site says NOT AVAILABLE, they really are available, but you have to choose them one at a time. This is completely deceptive to the customer. It is crazy to set it this way!

                    Doesn't seem I can show a photo here.

                      • Forever Albums

                        Allow users an option to pay a 'forever fee' to house photo albums. It could be done a payment plan for a certain amount of GB or TB amount.

                        Someday when I am gone (I'm only 57 so I hope I have many more years) the photos will not just disappear into the abyss after I have tireless worked to scan photos from over 60 albums my mother lovingly put together for myself and my 5 siblings and our children and grandchildren. She is gone now and I've been 'tasked' with making sure the photos are shared but once scanned…

                        • Integrate with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018

                          Now that Lightroom has a subscription requirement it is too expensive. Could you add syncing with Elements? And I've heard about a product called Lumina 2018, that product may also have potential as an alternative if it had syncing with SmugMug.

                          • 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 ;)

                            • Allow Sort to Dropbox Upload

                              The sort order in Dropbox is set to A-Z

                              The way they appear in Snug Mug is random. Really hard to find the correct folders

                              After each upload it reverts to root folder

                              Please add a sort button to Dropbox file view.

                              • add additional fields (like Caption) to your EXIF display

                                The exif info displayed when you hit the Info button in the lightbox is extremely limited, considering how many fields EXIF supports. We frequently have professional clients that need specific info in the EXIF - even having a "Comments" field available would be most useful! Plus there are many other fields easily accessable in Lightroom for instance, that might be useful for other photographers.

                                Thanks!

                                • Let me share PHOTO ONLY from the App (not, as happening now, sharing the whole gallery, too)

                                  In the app, by sharing a photo through the sharing If I want to share a photo, I want to share a photo, and not a gallery.
                                  If I want to share a gallery, I want to share a gallery.
                                  Give me both options, also in the app, this would be the top.
                                  If no, just let me share the photo, but don‘t mess it up with the gallery.
                                  Galleries are my business, not the receipient‘s.

                                  One hardly ever wants to open the whole gallery when sending a pic from the app.
                                  Maye I just want to quickly send a…

                                  • iOS app: Share links to photos instead of the actual photo

                                    If I share the photo with the Share Icon > Mail, it will physically attach the pic into a mail message (and not link to the photo page). This I would like to avoid, as I do not want to send out physical pictures, losing control.
                                    Similar if sending to slack or else.

                                    So, what I would like to do is sharing the pic on smugmug, mailing just the LINK (maybe with an inline preview) to someone (flickr is handling it like this).

                                    If I want to send out physical photos - why use smugmug for that, and not my…

                                      You timed this request well! We just launched this exact ability in the Android app (you can either share the photo or share a link). It will be coming soon to the iOS app as well.

                                      In the meantime, when you tap the Share Icon, you can choose “Copy Link”, then open the Mail app, and paste it in. I realize it’s a few extra taps but it’ll hold you over until we’ve added this feature to the iOS app.

                                    • Add keyboard shortcuts used during image viewing

                                      The existing shortcuts are great. I'd love to see a few more to be used while moving through viewing images in a gallery:

                                      "i" to toggle the Info display on and off (already requested, I see)

                                      "f" to select "Fit" view.

                                      "c" to toggle captions on and off.

                                      • Add/show IPTC sublocation

                                        In Lightroom and other image editing program you can add
                                        a 'Sublocation' which is saved in the IPTC sublocation field in exif. This field should be displayed in 'Photo info' popup and be searchable though site wide search.

                                        It would even be more great if this field could be shown with image caption and description.

                                        • Add a Stroke Option to gallery setup dialog

                                          I recently needed help to add a white stroke around my images which are on a dark background. This isolates the images from the background and contributes to the look of my site. Your help crew implemented this using CSS. However CSS is NOT my thing. There should be an option in one of the dialog boxes to specify the color and width of the stroke.
