  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.

      • 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?

        • Get rid of the need to use Adobe Flash

          Time to eliminate Adobe Flash eh? Especially given mid June warnings!

          • create an option to download selected photos from a gallery all at once -- not the entire gallery.

            It's nice to be able to download a single photo or an entire gallery, but I'm frequently in the situation where I want to download something like 50-100 photos out of a 300 - 500 photo gallery. I use these sets of photos to make personalized albums for family and friends.

            So, what I want is to be able to select all the photos I plan to use, then click on download so that I can get them onto my laptop.

            In the ideal world, this would look very much like the interface for uploading photos.

            • bring back the quick settings in the new gallery screen! It definitely streamlines the process for frequent users :)

              I loved having the Quick Settings in the "new gallery" window. It definitely made my process easier as someone who creates 3-6 new galleries per week!

              • 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

                • Pay what you want

                  It would be great to offer a pay-what-you-want feature specifically for the pricing of the download.
                  This should also include an option for minimum pricing.

                  This concept has shown to be efficient especially with very diverse customers, such as schoolkids, students, workers and academics.
                  Mostly it leads to follow the inner need for fair pricing.

                  It is also be great in combination with charity promotions campaigns.

                  • integrate face recognition across all galleries!

                    We use smug mug to store pictures from events across the country. Integrated face recognition (across all galleries) would help us to find all the photos related to one individual who has participated in many activities!

                    • 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 Google Tag Manager (GTM) to be use

                        Allow smugmug sites to use Google Tag Manager (https://www.google.com/analytics/tag-manager/) as well as Google Analytics to allow the flexibility for individual sites to integrate multiple other analytics vendors.

                        • make it possible to use a smugmug gallery as the Apple TV screensaver

                          Now that the smugmug iOS app works on the Apple TV it would be great if a gallery could be selected as a screensaver - either from within the app or the Apple TV settings.
                          While downloading the images to a linked desktop would work that limits the flexibility in choosing a gallery for a screensaver.

                            • Rearrange photos in "Multiple Photos" Content

                              I have a "Multiple Photos" content in my main page, and I use the "Photo|Choose" as my Select Form. The photos appear in the order that I have selected them. With time, I want to change the photos in this block, and they appear at the end of the list. I would like to be able to rearrange the photos at any time, without the need to add the photos in the correct order all the time.
                              It would be easy if we could alter the order in the "Select one or More Photos" panel when the selected photos are…

                                Now that you've enabled uploading of folders and everything under that folder (whether it's another folder or pictures), I think another great extension is to allow the collect feature to operate similarly at a folder level

                                • change to black text on white background in the organize, content update pages, etc. etc.

                                  i hate working on the black backgrounds and white text. Really difficult to read, especially if your eyesight isn't perfect. Puts me off so much it's taken me two years to start really customizing my site.

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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.

                                      • add additional url to site

                                        If I have a smugmug page, businessname.smugmug.com
                                        and I change my business name to newbusinessname.smugmug.com all of the old gallery links ive sent to clients would break, right? Requiring me to send hundreds of emails!

                                        So I want to be able to add a new one, so both businessname.smugmug.com/Weddings/Gallery1 and NEWbusinessname.smugmug.com/Weddings/Gallery1 would work and point to the same page.

                                        • Preserve Creation Dates on Zipped Gallery Files

                                          When downloading a gallery (zip file), the creation dates get changed to when the file was zipped (on smugmug's end). Thus, in Finder I can't sort by the original creation dates anymore. I could have used WinZip for PC, to preserve creation dates as they get unzipped, on my end. But on SmugMug's end, is there a way to zip the files, with creation date preservation in mind? Thank you.
