  1. Multiple feature images

    It would be nice to set multiple feature images from a gallery and to have them change at random (e.g after reload)

    • Add keyboard shortcuts used during image viewing

      The existing shortcuts are great. I'd love to see a few more to be used while moving through viewing images in a gallery:

      "i" to toggle the Info display on and off (already requested, I see)

      "f" to select "Fit" view.

      "c" to toggle captions on and off.

      • Create a shortcut to the end of a gallery

        I love the Up arrow that you've created to get back to the top of a gallery, but it would be awesome for you to create a Down arrow to take you to the end of a long gallery instantly. As of now, you have to scroll and wait, scroll and wait, etc.

        Thanks for your great website. SmugMug is awesome!

        • Add ability to create your own versions of Gallery Styles

          I would love to be able to create multiple versions of the Gallery Styles that could be used on different pages of the web site. For example, I want to use Gallery Landscape style on all my galleries, but on some of them, I want to show small thumbnails, while on others, to show large thumbnails. Currently, this is not possible.

          • Add a 'Inquire about this image' button on images..

            I have had many times when potential clients have come across an image they like but they have no way of inquiring about this image without needlessly having to copy and paste the link into their email software.

            This has happened many times and they are always frustrated they can do this... Its so simple and necessary I cant see why it isnt already there?

            Thanks

            • after doing a keyword search or selection, I would like to be able to organize the order of the images.

              I would like to be able to organize the order of the images that come up in a keyword search. I would also like to gather those images into a new gallery.

              • allow users to upload images to gallery featured image instead of choosing an already uploaded image.

                Instead of having to choose an already uploaded image for the folder/gallery featured image, allow users to upload images that aren't displayed elsewhere. This would be useful for uploading client images or coming soon images.

                • Add ability to mask darker / lighter the Feature and Cover Image

                  The mask & masking opacity settings for the background photos (ie photos displayed as background like in your homepage) is a very sleek option - which is unfortunately only available for background pictures.
                  It would be awesome to be able to add a darker / lighter mask on the gallery Feature (or gallery Cover) Images for each gallery so that the gallery name stands out better on a darker / lighter background.

                  • Allow captions to be on bottom bar with SM and journal gallery styles

                    Allow captions to be on bottom bar with SM and journal gallery styles. Currently only below the photo is an option.

                    • download arrow link is not obvious for users

                      I want people to only download and save the full size images, not right click and save the preview image.

                      To download the full size image, the tiny arrow at the bottom is way to small. Typical users for me are not aware that it's even there. They just right click and save but I want them to only save the full size original.

                      Currently when I send a gallery link, I have to include instructions on how to find that tiny arrow to click to save the full size original. Without instructions people tend to right click and save…

                      • Streamline and modernize the lightbox on the mobile!

                        It needs interactive rubberbanding for image navigation, and for images not to start with buttons and other text visible (and when they do appear, they should be minimal). Ideally it should look and act just like the SmugMug app looks and acts now when swiping between and displaying photos.

                        • Allow captains of at least a dozen lines to display below slideshow photos

                          Oh, I am so sad! This past week I explored a number of photo hosting sites and in every other respect, I like Smugmug the best, but this is just fatal.

                          Yes, I could suggest it as a feature but even if Smugmug were to go for it, it will take some time and by then it will be too late.

                          Thank you for your effort.

                          Bill

                          Unfortunately there is no possibility at the moment to display slideshow…

                          • Make it easier to select different sizes

                            When I ask my visitors if they viewed the larger sizes or if they looked at the original size to see a detail they often don't know how to do it, and telling them how is too 'involved'. Could you you make this much more obvious? My stats reveal that almost nobody views the larger sizes but thousands view the standard size.

                            • Ability to EMPHASISE fotos in a gallery

                              Adobe Revel had this feature:

                              give the photographer the ability to select SPECIFIC FOTOS a GALLERY, that are shown EMPHASISED (bigger - about 2 times) in a gallery.

                              Extra: To take it even further, these informations could be read from stars in the meta-data.

                              Example: Event fotos: Users tend to pick / download the 2nd or 3rd best shot! Never the BEST → If it would be shown bigger, they would tent to download the best.

                              • Visual cue to identify movies

                                In the iPad app, movies are identified in the thumbnails with a timestamp showing the length of the movie. In the PC version, there is no visual cue at all unless I hover over the image. Please add a visual cue that we can see without hovering. Synology PhotoStation displays a circle with the "play" button (>) so you know it is a movie. Thanks!

                                • Fading top edge of folder/gallery title

                                  Currently the title bar on folders and galleries is a (almost) solid bar that hides the lower part of the picture. Synology PhotoStation does the same thing but they fade the top of the bar so it blends in with the picture, making a much more pleasant appearance.

                                    • Update the featured image option

                                      I love the featured image setting BUT I spend so much time picking images that don't end up lining up nicely with the space provided. Many times my subject's head is cut off, for instance. It would be nice to have the option to move the image around in the space, and be able to save it in the desired orientation.

                                        • Support Wide Color Gamut like Adobe RGB and DCI-P3

                                          iPads, iMacs, 4K TVs, and now iPhone 7 all support wide color gamut. I would love for your galleries to support that if my images were uploaded in a wider color space like Adobe RGB.

                                          Maybe first just implement it in the iOS app, or feed it only to Apple user agents on the site. (Macs have properly handled converting color space in the browser for years)

                                          I process and upload everything in Adobe RGB for better color archival and printing, and SmugMug already does a great job converting images to sRGB correctly for web display, but it would be…

                                            As you noted, SmugMug does accept images in any color space and converts them to sRGB. We’ll play a ‘wait and see’ game before converting images to a different colorspace than sRGB. Since we generate display sizes that allow photos to load as fast as possible, we wouldn’t want to start storing multiple copies with different color space until we’re sure that devices will support the wider colorspace. As of now (Sept 2016), the number of wide color space displays remains very small but we can change our opinion if this fact changes.
