  1. Client login / create account link / prompt to create account on "favorite" of any photo

    Several people have requested some version of a client login, but I'm creating a new request to get more specific about how it should work.

    1) Provide a link to sign in / create account so that any visitor can either sign in or create a new account right from the home page or navigation bar (not required to receive an invitation from us, and not required to go back and find the "event" email we sent them months ago if they want to log back in).

    2) We receive notification whenever a new account is created, including name &…

    • Allow logged in Pro users to add Boutique Packaging for direct shipments

      When I am placing an order to ship directly to a client, I should be able to click add the option of Boutique Packaging.

      Now I have to log out and apply an At Cost coupon and process the order.

      I actually prefer that orders I generate have the extra touch more so than what the client self generates.

      Otherwise I have to ship it to myself, repack in a gift box and then resend to the client.

      • Allow default lab product names to be customised

        Please allow us to customise the default lab product names into something more meaningful for our customers. Default names are not necessarily user friendly and can cause confusion. This feature would also allow us to match our current studio product names, pricelists and marketing materials to our online sales platform. At present it becomes very disjointed having different names online and is affecting sales.

        The current lab product names are very much geared towards fellow photographers, not customers.

        Thank you!

        • have product videos easily accessible when placing an order or during checkout rather than having to click on the print lab.

          I suggest you have these cool product videos more accessible to the client when ordering and on checkout.

          • Add a Digital Copy to a Print Order for Reduced Price

            If a customer buys a print online, give them the option to add the digital copy of the print at a reduced price. Most customers these days want the digital copy along with a print so they can share it on socail media. Give customers the option to add a digital copy of the print for a reduced price. Say you charge $10 for a print and $10 for the digital copy. Customers will neve buy both. They will most like take a horrible picture of the print with their smart phone or tablet that will say nothing about your…

              • Why is the "crop" function in the editor in the narrow right-side bar?

                If you are on a photo and click the "Tools" button and select "Open in Editor" the photo loads into SmugMug's editor. There's an option for "Crop", which takes the photo, and displays it a second time (it's already displayed nice and big on the left) with the crop function squished into the right side panel. It should be in the primary window so you can accurately crop the image. Having it in the narrow right hand bar cripples the feature.

                • Loxley Colour products

                  Loxley and I'm sure many other print labs provide some fantastic products which aren't available through SmugMug. It'd be great to see a lot of what's offered on Loxleys website provided through SmugMug

                  • end-to-end encryption

                    In the post Snowden area we know that each and any data communication is listened by some Computer device. Filtering pictures and video streams for specific content is possible today. The possibilities are at hand for governemt agencies, private organisations and hackers - as recent illegal publications of celebrity pix haved proved. I propose to encrypt all Pictures/Videos on the client's device, transmit the files encrypted to SmugMug and store the data encrypted. The SmugMug customer should have full control who can access his content. One possible technical solution is AES 256 Standard encryption.

                    • Combine "Add Frames and More" into the new add to cart flow

                      I like the update, although I think the "add frames and more" button in the cart is way too hard to find. Especially since now when adding to cart you see "wall art" and "paper prints." That will confuse people who want a framed print (which is technically wall art) but it can only be done after adding something in the 'paper prints' section to cart.

                      So I suggest somehow combining the "add frames and more" options into the add to cart process, and maybe allow them to be editable in the cart (like you already do for sizes in…

                      • Meta property enablement for using "Facebook Insights" reporting

                        Facebook provides reporting on like activity and like users, web domain user need to add a meta property to the root web page. This is not possible today with SmugMug. I would love to run "giveways" at Events that increase the "likes" on my main web page but to do so requires I see who liked at the event to draw names. Many more marketing opportunities if I have access to the facebook data via Insights.

                        • Provide a way to make GLOBAL watermark changes for galleries

                          I've recently rebranded and am now having to go through each of my old galleries and change the watermark so I can have a consistent logo and brand message across my website. Select gallery -- select all images -- click wrench -- select Watermark -- choose new watermark -- save new watermark -- close window. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. SO much wasted time here when I should be out shooting, right?!?!

                          Thanks for listening and also thanks for the great website!!

                            It is urgent my family and many other are not on the social network and do not save or do not want to register just to post a comment!

                            I'm really sad to no longer have that opportunity

                            Smugmug is great and offers a lot of opportunity and freedom for the creation of our website, but this is a big step backwards!

                                  • Loxley Colour 'Giftware' category to be added to Smugmug

                                    Currently there are no UK providers of giftware such as mugs, mouse mats etc.

                                    These are big sellers for me, and at the moment i am having to sell and advertise them off my website.

                                    Smugmugs rival companies have print labs that accept orders on these products.

                                    Now Loxley Colour has started accepting direct orders on them there is no reason Smugmug cannot integrate this into the ordering system.

                                    If this doesn't happen I think i'll be forced to switch providers!

                                    • Please give us the option to use to the original caption/keyword tool.

                                      The original caption/keyword tool, which loaded all photos at once and allowed both bulk addition and photo-specific addition of captions and keywords all at once, was extremely efficient for me. I was able to add captions and keywords applying to all photos through the form at the top, then scroll through and quickly adjust/embellish captions and add unique, photo-specific keywords. It was so fast!

                                      With the new Organizer, I can bulk-add captions and keywords to a group of photos, but there is no fast way for me to adjust the metadata on the photo level. I have to page through…

                                      • Identify that a users "Quick Settings" have been selected on a gallery

                                        Show the user "Quick Setting" somewhere where we can verify that the setting is being used. Now if I use a "Quick Setting" and upload, the menus still say the default settings and I have to go back into settings to verify that the Quick Setting I used is selected.

                                        Annoying! Thanks!

                                        • Drag and Drop Folders to the Uploader

                                          Drag and Drop Folders of Pics into a folder Would SAVE ME HOURS A DAY!

                                          Right now trying to drop a folder into the uploader results in a "File type not supported" error. It should recognize the items inside the folder and begin uploading those, creating galleries based on those folders.

                                          Ideally you could drop a folder into a SmugMug Folder and have it launch the uploader, like the new gallery drag/drop does.
