  1. The ability to compare photos side by side and 4 up.

    In events and especially large events such as a wedding once a customer goes through each galley and selects their favorites (which should not have a lowered opacity and a heart in the center of the photo BTW) there should be a way to do a side by side comparison or even a 4up comparison.
    Example is a bide with 4 favorite bridal shots. She has to go back and forth between photos in the galley and it would be nice to select more than one photo and click the compare button. Or a mother choosing senior photos and trying…

      Working with the new 'Collage Landscape' appearance (I like it a lot!) does not show great comments to individual photos at a prominent place. They are perfectly hidden and only accessible once a photo is shown in full page mode (lightbox) and one clicks explicitly on the comment button.
      Please (!) allow to show comments with a tooltip like feature already when browsing through the photos and show comments like the photo's title when opening in lightbox mode.

      • Implement user-selectable display filters in smugmug galleries

        I just completed a large photo shoot at a local marathon. I obtained plenty of nice shots.... and a much larger number of flawed ones. I would like to allow my users to see/download any of them on request, but I don't want my gallery to show the bad ones by default. Ideally, I would like the gallery to offer a menu of optional display filters to my users, with names like "Show all", "Show only photos top rated by photographer", "Show only photos liked by users", "Show most frequently viewed", etc. The system default would be to show all.…

        • allow captions to be displayed above photos

          Old SmugMug allowed captions to display above the photo. New SmugMug only allows them at the bottom (where I believe they are often overlooked). For those of us who spend a lot of time with descriptions, the new format is disappointing in this regard.

          • Provide ability to insert a link to a website in gallery description

            With old/legacy SmugMug, one could embed a link or e-mail address into a description using HTML. It appears that the ability to do this has been removed on the new SmugMug as HTML code for links no longer works. I can live without the ability to embed and e-mail (though I believe that should have been left up to account owner). However, I do miss the ability to embed a link to another website/webpage.

            My portfolio features photos I have taken for/of businesses. As a professional courtesy, I provide a short description of their business and info on how to…

              My Legacy view of my gallery categories has text with the number of galleries included as well as the number of photos. How can you have this option with the new smugmug folders?

              • 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!

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                          • 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…

                              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…

                                  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.

                                    • 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?
