  1. 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.

    • two way sync with dropbox

      I use Smugmug's Folders and Galleries to organize photos and videos by date and occasion, and make an attempt to have the SmugMug file structure mirrored by the file structure on my PC in a Folder (with many subfolders), called "Organized Photos". However it is vastly easier to organize photos on SmugMug because of the ability to see the results, than on the PC. In order to keep organized, I have "shoeboxes" on my PC (often in Dropbox too) which are folders into which scans and camera pics are put as they occur, then migrated and organized in SmugMug, and…

      • Multi-select photos for deletion with Control + click

        Enable selection of non-sequential photos in a gallery by holding down Control and clicking. This is a common multi-select in operating systems and browsers. Would make it easier to clean up galleries.

        • Option to delete collected photos from all locations

          Redesign the "Delete Photo" function so that any selected photos have the option to be deleted just from the active gallery or deleted globally from all galleries.

          Example:
          "Delete selected from this gallery"
          "Delete selected from all galleries"

          It is cumbersome to chase "Collected" Versions and "original" versions when culling you galleries

          • Filter by Photos or Videos in the Organizer

            When in the Organizer it would be handy to have a filter option to only show movies within the gallery.

            Scenario: I have 1 gallery with mix of photos and videos. I want to use an easy/fast way to move all the videos from this gallery to a different gallery for movies only.

            • 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!

                • View captions in organizer mode

                  I'd like to see a way to view captions when in organizer mode. It's currently possible to view only titles. (The reason I ask is that I would use the captions in sorting the photos.)

                  • Enable Collect function to work at a folder level

                    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

                    • display a warning when deleting an original photo that is used in collections...

                      I suggest that whenever an original photo is to be deleted, a warning is displayed that states that 'this photo is collected in 3 galleries"..."do you still want to delete?".... Also, listing all the galleries where it appears would be nice.

                      Additionally, may want to display an icon on the "original" photo that indicates is it collected in another gallery (the collected ones show an icon, why can't the original)

                      Thank you...

                      • Consider my "fix" for scrolling in ORGANIZE

                        Dear SMUGMUG,
                        I’m a new user and I’m frustrated with one behavior in SM that makes it very difficult to organize multiple albums into folders. I’ve inquired from your Support Staff about this and their answer was essentially, “That’s just the way it is.” Well, I want to suggest what I believe to be a BETTER way. I’m not certain this can be programmed, but I hope you will consider my suggestion:

                        THE PROBLEM
                        Under ORGANIZE, when dragging a long list of albums into what may be a fairly long list of parent folders, the scrolling is so fast that…

                          In lightbox of collected photo, you show link to original source gallery but don't show the folder hierarchy.

                          • Single-click remove from collection

                            There is currently no way to remove photos from single collections - at least not with Edge. There is an icon that appears on collected photos. Make that icon clickable with a menu allowing that photo to be removed from that collection.

                            • 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.

                              • Undo Sorting (revert back to previous manual sort)

                                Undo a gallery sort. Say I've been manually sorting photos in a gallery, but want to try one of the predefined sorts, like sort by date taken. If I don't like that sort, I'd want to go back to my manual sort. Right now, no way to do that.

                                  I have a gallery sorted by picture date. When I moved a picture to a different gallery by drag and drop, the sort order of the current gallery changed to manual! Is that a bug? I could just reset the order but I may not remember what I had it set to previously...

                                  • color coding

                                    others have suggested greater control over color coding public folders, which would is cool. but I'd like to be able to color code items in the organizer to more easily find my way through many folders and galleries while managing the structure behind my site. Thanks!

                                    • Remember last manual picture sequence

                                      I may spend a long time sorting a large gallery manually. I may then change the sort method to sort by date taken, or whatever. If I change my mind and want to go my to my manual setting, it would be nice if the system remembered my last manual arrangement of the pictures.

                                      • Enable Move / Collect Function for galleries into folders

                                        I think it would be very useful if there was the option to “collect / move” galleries into folders in a similar way you can “collect or move” images into galleries. This would make it possible to always have the latest galleries at the top on individual pages rather than having to manually deselect and then reselect to get the latest galleries to the top.

                                        • Delete and Hide Photos from Mobile Browser

                                          Please let us at least be able to delete (and hide!) photos when using a mobile browser. Please - it's 2017! You can't simply block this basic feature.
                                          I want to be able and have a look at my galleries and modify them on my mobile. It has got a display big enough for that - many customers / visitors view the pics mobile as well!
