  1. Permit the display of the image's filename when right-clicking on the image.

    I have a large gallery slideshow of dolls reverse sorted by filename. Viewers have asked me many times about specific pictures, wanting to know the manufacturer, etc. Now they have to describe the scene so I know which picture they were asking about. I know I can display the filename on every image, but that clutters the screen. What would be wonderful would be to allow the user to right-click on an image and then have the filename be displayed. Moving to the next image would clear the filename display until the viewer right-clicked again.

    • Allow Clients to Hide photos in their galleries/events

      I would love the ability to let my bride + grooms hide any photos they do not want others to see so that they feel comfortable sharing their event page (for their wedding etc) with their guests. So many of our couples choose not to share their galleries/even pages because they don't want to share ALL their images with people. A lot of other proofing sites allow you to give one or two people the option to hide any images in a gallery without having to be the business.

      I think this would end up with us seeing MUCH greater…

      • Hide / Remove Keywords Options

        make an off and on button to remove keywords from showing up under the photos, instead of having to go in and use code to do that!!

        • Display portion of description

          When Gallery Style thumbnails is used, the start of the image description is displayed when the cursor is moved over the image. A similar description display would be EXTREMELY HELPFUL for the gallery display set to SmugMug, and also for Organize. These image description displays were part of the old SmugMug. I would think this would simple to implement since the coding already exists since it is used in the thumbnail style.

          • SUBJECT: Caption font size.

            My laptop screen size is approx. 14"x8". Have just started tinkering with the New Smugmug. Maybe you can 'teach an old dog new tricks'. LOL

            I like to caption my photos for friends and family to know what they're looking at. But right now I have to squint (hard) and lean in closer to the screen to read the captions.

            Even when I'm creating the captions, the letters are so small I cannot detect when I've made a spelling error. Aaarrrghgghh! Squint, squint.

            I know screens sizes vary from my size to much larger; the latter which professional users like.…

            • Make it possible to display captions beside an image in a gallery instead of below

              I'd like to be able to share photos with simple captions, much as in facebook but for those friends who don't have facebook.

              My captions show by default beneath the photo which means they're invisible without scrolling down. I spoke to someone via help who told me I should create a Page for each photo - but I want to be able to do it in a quick and easy way while travelling. Is this easy for you to do or should I keep looking elsewhere?

              • New Gallery Style -- Carousel

                It would be amazing to be able to use carousel instead of collage or the other gallery display options, without having to create a new page, set the display to a specific gallery, etc. It would be great to just change a gallery from Collage style to Carousel with the click of 2 buttons.

                • New Gallery Style -- "Map"

                  I could use a Galleri template called map, ie if a picture i GPS tagged, is would be nice to just show a map area where user could zoom in (if more pictures are from same place) and thumbnail view on mouse over, and full view by click, (the map view is allready under (I) when picture is gps tagged)

                  • New Gallery Style -- Thumbnail AND Slideshow

                    Currently you have an option for "SLIDESHOW" or "Thumbnails/Multiples"...I'd LOVE an option for BOTH!! A small thumbnail (to the side or below in a slide) & a larger slideshow image. Similar to the Gallery view!!
                    Thanks

                    • Customize crops in "Thumbnails" Gallery Style

                      Presently, the "Crop Thumbnail" feature is only utilized in the old "SmugMug" Gallery Style. I'd like to be able to customize crops on the "Thumbnails" Gallery style.

                      I think another idea(1) would better handle 90-95%
                      of cases I want to customize, but it would be great to also be able to tweak it when that's still not quite right.

                      • allow commenting, sharing, and liking from all gallery styles

                        Currently, you can only like, share, or comment on a photo in three modes:
                        1) SmugMug
                        2) Journal
                        3) images in Lightbox

                        We already have an option to 'Buy' on any photo gallery style using the pop-up info bar. Why not replace/add to that some sharing, commenting, and like buttons?

                        • Allow Filenames to appear IN ADDITION to or INSTEAD of captions in galleries.

                          I need to show FileNames for my photos in Landscape/Portrait Collage displays, both in the gallery view and in lightbox view.

                          It looks like this request has been discussed over on DGrin at http://dgrin.com/showthread.php?t=239112&highlight=show+filename

                          It seems like a very basic request, and is necessary for those of us who correspond with clients about specific images. Thank you!

                          • Make captions more visible to viewers

                            In the "New SmugMug" in Gallery View, the captions display below the navigation buttons, and the images fill the entire screen real estate vertically, so you have to scroll down to see the captions below each image. In the old SmugMug, the captions were immediately below the image and the image was slightly smaller, so the caption would be visible by default as someone was navigating through the gallery. Viewers might not know there is a caption to be seen and might not scroll down to see it. This is annoying to me, when I'm sharing my albums with people,…

                            • Make the play button obvious (not hover) on the gallery view of photos and videos

                              This kinda breaks interface conventions, usually one expects a play button on a video thumbnail. More importantly, it's just inconvenient for our family members, who are looking through to find the videos. It works as expected on mobile, with play buttons, why not do the same on computers???

                                • SmugMug Gallery Styles -- Show thumbnails beneath the main photo

                                  I want the option to choose where the thumbnails should be in the SmugMug gallery style, such as BELOW the photo being viewed. Currently they can only be on the left...this causes the main photo to be smaller than it would be if the thumbnails were at the bottom.
                                  Or... after clicking on a photo in the first page of the gallery, it opens into the slideshow view with thumbnails along the bottom.

                                  • Include link (breadcrumb or navigation bar) back to artist site on Gallery pages.

                                    I noticed that once a customer opens a gallery, no link is available for the customer to return to another of that artist's gallery, home page, or any other page for that artist.

                                    • On hover over gallery thumbnail, pop full name in tooltip

                                      Often the full name of a gallery won't display in the thumbnail view of a category. On hover over the gallery thumbnail, pop the full name in a tooltip.

                                      Also you should add a UX option to your category drop down for issue type!

                                      • Option to Disable "NO MAP DATA"

                                        When clicking "i" to get info for an image, the info starts with a map. If there is no map data, the map is still shown with "NO MAP DATA" overlayed on top. This seemingly wastes a lot of space in the info window, especially when people who don't geo-tag their photos, or turn off map data in the smugmug options.
