      • 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.

          • Send custom download links to clients

            It would be so much more flexible if it were possible to send a download link directly to a client.

            1. Open the image organizer in the browser, or open the SmugMug app on your phone;
            2. Select images, or an entire gallery;
            3. Select the maximum image size;
            4. Check a box if the images should be converted to sRGB;
            5. Enter an email address and hit send, or copy a share link.

            A communications person at an NGO who wants an image for their email newsletter requires a different treatment than a magazine photo editor who requests a…

            • To keep existing menus and their content when changing the whole site design.

              For example, I want to change my site design from a Ludwig based one, to a Nix based one. But I have to create and set up all my menus and their corresponding pages all over again. The menus and their pages should be able to be saved or not altered when switching site designs.

                • Enhance your API or allow folder syncing from our computers

                  Today you allow to drag and drop a folder and the subfolders are created as galleries.

                  We need a way to be able to select a folder in our local computers (Mac and PC) and that the whole folder structure gets synced to SmugMug.

                  Folders need to get created as folders. If the next level is a folder with pictures the this needs to be created as a gallery.
                  If the second subfolder is just a folder then it should be created as a folder too, this way the file structure would be respected.

                  We need this so we can…

                  • Offer photobooks and calendars for sale.

                    I would like to be able to offer calendars and photobooks for sale on my SmugMug site. I have been ordering them from other sites but it is a pain; would be easier to have everything available for sale in one place.

                    • Increase the maximum number of photos per gallery

                      Some of the races I photograph include up to 2 thousand participants and the resulting photos can easily exceed 10 thousand, even after culling/editing. As it stands now, Smugmug's 5000 image limit per gallery means I need to create at least two galleries per race. I understand 10K would be an extremely large gallery. But so is 5K, so at that point why not go all the way. At least the customers would no longer get confused over which gallery they are in.

                          This week we’ve launched a new flash-free video player, which means SmugMug is now Flash-free*! The previous place, Stats, became flash free almost a year ago.

                          I’m leaving this ticket Partially Completed because there’s 2 places where we’ve integrated a 3rd party tool that is still Flash: PicMonkey photo editing and when trying to build/purchase holiday cards.

                        • Simplify card ordering

                          It'd be amazing if there were an easier set-up for people who want to buy cards. Like, pick an image, pick a quantity, pay money. I feel like the Flash interface on that part of the storefront makes thing unnecessarily complicated, without adding a whole lot for the customers. It didn't pass the "mom test" which is one way I tend to know if a computer thing is not as easy as it could be. My mom was pretty much defeated by it , in fact.

                          One possibility would be offer two options: A quick order and an "advanced" that…

                            • 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!

                              • 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.

                                  • Add a way to rate photos

                                    Please add a way to rate photos. I love the way you can star the best ones in Lightroom and then filter out all the bad photos. It would save so much time looking through them a later on. If this was added to the Lightroom plugin, it could seamlessly carry those ratings over into Smugmug.

                                      Add support to view images from my account on an apple watch. Limited to most recent? A single designated folder or gallery? Don't know.

                                      • Filtering by metadata

                                        Would be nice if it was possible for the visitor to filter and search for photos though metadata-information that I add in Lightroom or Adobe Bridge.

                                        Star ratings, flags, colour labels, etc.

                                        Sorting by star-rating is the most important one if you ask me, but it would be nice to be able to sort by all the variables that are available in Adobe Lightroom.

                                        I guess this should be an easy feature to add?

                                        • Gallery and Image 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.
