  1. 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.

      • 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…

        • 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:

          • 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.

            • Why don't you make it easier for non-Smugmug users to make comments on photos.

              I email friends by photos on Smugmug but hardly any ever make comments using the comment icon at the bottom right of the photo. If they make a comment, and many do, they just email me the comment.
              Why don't you make it easier for non-Smugmug users to make comments on photos. The comment section could be more user friendly and it would be used much more by friends to visit Smugmug.

              • Full Facebook shop integration

                Like shopify are doing there should be a button that pushes your entire catalogue to your facebook shop. The facebook shop will be the only way to sell stock on Instagram once that goes live.

                • Gallery settings

                  I think you should be able to change settings from the app, or a web browser on your phone. For example I need to change my gallery settings to show the filenames, because by default it’s hidden. I can’t do this from a mobile device on the website, or the app. Also, would be nice if you could generate gallery download links from the app, or on mobile device web browser.

                  • 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…

                    • More smartphone/tablet cases

                      Add more smartphone cases, than the ones existing.
                      The only ones someone can order today are the ones for some iPhones and the Samsung S7.
                      When there are countless smartphone (or even tablet) models on the market, it seems like a giant gap of lost profit in there.

                      • 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.

                        • Please add “frame your photo" as an option before checking out! Please. and maybe framing should be in wall art as well. Not as an add-on

                          Framing a photo is one of the most important parts of the entire website buying images. But yet, it is nearly impossible to find which makes no sense. I tried many times on my own to find framing and couldn't until I contacted support and even then it was tough. It should be very obvious and before you check out. It's all so confusing that it's not a wall art option, it should be both under prints and wall art. Please, Please make this change right away. Thanks!

                              A lot of my customers ask about "Mix and Match" greeting cards in ten- and 25-card packs. They often don't want ten/25 of one card. Sure, it will cost more. But that's what they are asking for.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Mobile Pay and DKK as currency

                                      Add DKK (Danish Kroner) as a currency and allow for payments over Mobile Devices like Apple Pay and Mobile Pay (Denmark Specific) but that would really generate much more income to event photographers as the willingness from people to purchase is much higher when they are participating in the event rather than days or weeks after.

                                      • No NOT facial recognition, but display name metadata on photo

                                        Lightroom very nicely does facial recognition and adds names and location metadata to the JPG files.

                                        In the old days we wrote names on the back of printed photos.

                                        It is highly desirable to add a Display Names button (ON of OFF) when viewing full photos.

                                        This button would cause SM to read the JPG metadata of Names and Location, and display them ON THE PHOTO.

                                        This feature would be fantastic, and would NOT require SM to add facial recognition.

                                        Come on SM programmers. This can't be too hard to implement!!
