  1. Captions disappear for the next photos if mouse is left stationary

    When viewing the photo in large size (ex. click into the photo to view from thumbnail), if you don't move the mouse and just pressing the right key to switch to the next photos, the comments will not show up unless you move the mouse again.

    Ideally, I wish the comments will always be on when you view the photo in large size.

    • Allow the display of "updated mm/dd/yyyy" on folders in the New SmugMug

      Folders in the Old SmugMug are labeled with "updated mm/dd/yyyy" but this option is no longer available in the New SmugMug. This seems like such an obvious and helpful feature to have, at least as a customizable option. Knowing whether the folders have changed since their last visit is a feature my regular visitors like a lot!

        • Mark "NEW" content in galleries with a "star"...

          I dream about at new feature where "just oploaded" new photographs in a gallery are marked with "new" or a yellow star or something for a defined period of time after upload.

          The relating gallery should of cause also be "marked" with "new content".

          This idea would go very well hand in hand with another one of the posted ideas in this forum: http://feedback.smugmug.com/forums/17723-smugmug/suggestions/321900-user-email-distribution-list-that-notifies-user-wh

          • Put back the large numerical numbers for each photo in a gallery so the client can place orders by numbers and not file names/numbers.

            There used to be large subtle numbers by each photo in a gallery so the client could say "photo #1, 5, 10 etc." There are no more numbers and only the option to display the file names or numbers.

            • add a feature where the photos can be viewed in black& white or sepia by the viewers choice

              while browsing the gallery it would be nice if they could click an icon to see what the image would look like ion b&w or sepia. Maybe even an option to view the whole gallery in either and of course switch back to color at any time.

              • Have CSS Automatically Place Watermarks, ONLY when a Cursor moves over an Image!

                Would it be possible to have a "Custom CSS" code that "whenever" the Cursor moves OVER a photograph, THEN a "Special Selected Heavy and Invasive Watermark" would pop up on the screen. That way if someone moves a Cursor over the image, the Heavy Watermark would ALWAYS show up on any Snapped image they took. (One extra problem, I believe that an entire screen capture, by use of only keyboard commands, might be able to get around this CSS code. But MAYBE, IF the "CSS" code could also be generated whenever the screenshot is "keyboard Command" snapped also, that would…

                • New Gallery Style -- Pinterest Style

                  I think it would be great if we could have an option to have a 'pintrest' looking gallery. I think it works VERY well for image galleries and help us sell more prints!

                  • support single-page journal galleries

                    I'd like the ability to present a gallery as a "journal" but have it be a single "page", so you can just keep scrolling and scrolling through the gallery. Similar to how a Google Image search results are a single "page" (more results are loaded on demand). In the past, loading all the images at once would be overwhelming, but with fancy Javascript I know you can demand-load images.

                    I'd want this because I suspect when I send a gallery link to family and friends that are not familar with Smugmug, they may miss the "next page" link and think…

                    • Lightroom Styled Galleries

                      I would like to be able to upload Web Galleries from Lightroom 4 for my image display as an alternative to SmugMug's Journal, Filmstrip, SmugMug thumbs, etc. I do believe that this could be a extra feature that would be most beneficial.

                      • Show full captions under thumbnails in gallery view

                        I'd like my gallery view to be an actually-browsable overview of my photos, including full titles/captions. Right now, captions are truncated to just the first fiew words. Please provide an option to show the whole caption.

                        • Allow re-sizing the preview of photos in gallery

                          Add a feature that allows photographers to re-size the preview of photos in a gallery. The default preview size is too small. It is better for the icons to shrink to allow the selected photo to display bigger.

                            • Add a button to view geotag of individual photo.

                              I love to geotag photos, but after two hundred photos geotagged in the gallery, the older ones disappear. Now I know there might be some technical limitation on how many geotags you can show on one map, but how about the ability to just bring up the geotagged location for any individual photo that has been geotagged?

                              • host interactive flash or html5 files for things like virtual tours

                                Many photographers create virtual tours and walkthroughs for businesses, real estate, and points of interest. While flash movies can be hosted, actual flash and html5 files with interactive content cannot be hosted.

                                There may be easy checks for the security issues. You obviously do not want the flash file to go offsite... run it in a sandbox so that it can only jump to files in the same directory hierarchy. You might be able to check the swf for disallowed commands, or even recompile it.

                                But basically, this would be another example that smugmug is dedicated to the needs of…

                                  • add a "story" gallery style

                                    I'm not a professional photographer, I just like to take photos and share with friends a family. One thing I'm missing at Smugmug is a "story" theme, a theme that allows me to tell a story with both text and photos.

                                    For example, let's say that I've been on a trip to some other country. When I get back home I want to tell friends and family about this trip using both text and photos, where both text and photos play an equally important role. Right now the available themes let the photos be the important part while the text…

                                    • Allow PicMonkey to be used by clients as an option in gallery settings.

                                      The younger crowd often likes to play around with pictures. If they want to play and then order their beautiful creation... so be it! Build in the option to allow clients to be able to fool with their pictures with PicMonkey, but do not allow them to replace the original.

                                      • Captions should be visible under the thumbnails in the SmugMug gallery style

                                        Currently only the caption of the selected item is visible in the SmugMug Gallery Style. It'd be good to see captions under the thumbnails as well (or file names if so chosen in the existing options).

                                        • Commerce Gallery Style: On screen pricing beside the photo

                                          I feel that people would purchase more if the pricing was right there beside their photos. That's one of the things that makes Zen so attractive. The biggest complaint I've had from people is that they don't know (or can't figure out) how much basic prints or downloads costs.
