  1. Get rid of the need to use Adobe Flash

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

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

            • 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

                Currently the maps block can only show 1000 geo-tagged photos, please can you extend the numbers to at least 5-digit or unlimited?

                Many thanks.

                • improve the gallery cover image feature so the position of the image can be adjusted

                  I recently started using the gallery cover image option. While I like this feature, it is cumbersome to use - I have to place several images before I find one that is positioned correctly and doesn't remove heads or other key subject elements. It would be great if I could simply adjust the photo vertically to place it in the optimal position. That's all. Facebook has this flexibility on cover photos and so should SmugMug. Thank you.

                    This is definitely something we’re going to do — we wanted to get Cover Image out there for you all to use and so we could get feedback. We’ll incorporate the ability to reposition the Cover Image and some other things in the next iteration!

                  • 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!

                    • Keep the LinkedIn Icon

                      I'm sure I'm not the only photographer on SmugMug that works with commercial clients. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest etc are fine that LinkedIn is just as important. Put it back as an option!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                      • 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.

                        • Phone number in contact form

                          It would be nice to have the option of having a telephone number appear on the contact form. There could be a field in the profile for a phone number, and for those that want the number to be shown, provide it in the profile. If you don't want it shown, do provide it in the profile. Really no different that how profile photos are handled

                              As the internet continues to evolve there should be greater consideration for customer reviews on our SM site to help with SEO. Customers should have the ability to not only comment on our FB, Google local, Yelp, etc pages but on our website as well. The integration would benefit the ranking for the site owner to be recognized.

                              • 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.

                                • Provide a COMPLETE site-wide image backup function

                                  Allow owners to download all image files from selected/all galleries, complete with ALL metadata embedded.

                                  This would support the Smugmug population who do not use a Lightroom-based upload process. And those who take advantage of Smugmug's agility to maintain their captions & keywords on the fly.

                                  Effectively, this would replace the functionality of the Legacy third-party app AlbumFetcher. For selected/all galleries, it downloaded a copy of every image file with ALL of its metadata EMBEDDED -- whether having been originally uploaded OR MAINTAINED WITHIN SMUGMUG. Specifically, it:

                                  (1) allowed the bulk download of any number of galleries at once (select…

                                    • MailChimp Embeds PLEASE

                                      For the love of all the good things in the world like SmugMug, why on earth is it so ridiculously hard to do a simple email subscription form on SmugMug sites? It's 2016. There's literally no excuse. This should be dead simple and not rely on having to use a "bridge" like Wufoo or another 3rd party. I'm just shocked that SmugMug only supports one vendor for accomplishing this and doesn't allow the embedding of a simple HTML form direct from an email service vendor like MailChimp.

                                      All we need is to embed <FORM> HTML elements and some CSS styling.…

                                        • MINIMIZE ZOOM-IN AND ZOOM-OUT ON TUTORIALS

                                          The how-to tutorials are a big help and generally well done. However, one big complaint I have - and the 'Organizer' tutorial is a good example - is the constant zooming in and out, scrolling up and down, left and right - I feel like I'm watching a tennis match.

                                          For the most part, just show the **** screen and use the green arrows or hi-lited text or some other technique but for crying out loud, quit the ridiculous back and forth up and down zooming!

                                          (And go slow - 'fast' is bad when someone is new to a topic.)
