  1. Slideshow music

    Will SmugMug please look into adding music to the slideshow?

    SmugMug Support Hero,

    Will SmugMug please look into adding music to the slideshow? My other website www.RichardDalcinStudios.com has music and it helps so much with the images. Please respond with a positive reply.
    Best,
    Richard Dalcin

    • Length of slideshows

      It would be great is there was a counter to show how many minutes a slideshow was. I embedded a slideshow into a web page and then embedded a music code. If I knew the length of the slideshow I could time it so both ended together.

      • Filenames as a Title

        I work in Lightroom and give a name to all my files. When I upload them to SmugMug I have the filename shown. When I go to a gallery and want to do a slide show the filename does not come up. I have to have a title in there for it to come up in the slideshow. It is too time consuming and redundant to add a title to each slide again when I already have it in the filename. Can anything be done?

        • Slideshow From Multiple Galleries

          Please provide a way to create a slide show that automatically cycles through all photographs in a group of galleries or that cycles through all photographs in a SmugMug site.

          • Allow for Longer Captions in Slideshow

            Provide a setting to allow long captions to overlay more of the picture in Slideshow mode. Now, some of our longer captions are getting cut off which makes the slideshow view unusable.

            • Slideshow Captions -- Display below the images, not on the images.

              In slide show mode, please display captions below the images, not on the images. It greatly detracts from the enjoyment of the slide show when the captions are overlaid on the images. Hope you can do this. Thanks!

              • Auto-Refresh Slideshow

                I saw one reference to my idea, but I wanted to give my reasoning. I currently use your gallery slideshow feature for photo booth events that I do. My photos upload to my Smugmug account as they are taken throughout the night in my photo booth. I then show the photos on the venue tv screens for guests to see. The drawback to the smugmug slideshow is that it doesn't auto fresh. If I want any new photos uploaded to the gallery from my photo booth to show in the slideshow, I have to exit fullscreen and refresh the browser.…

                • Add a Vertically-scrolling Carousel and Slideshow

                  I think it would be great to have the option of a vertically-scrolling image carousel and slideshow. Currently, the scrolling is horizontal, only.

                  • Allow the slideshow button onto a homepage instead of just a gallery

                    I want to be able to allow viewers to select the slideshow button from my homepage instead of only from my galleries. I have been told by smugmug support that this is not possible. Seems simple to me technically to allow this. I do not want to create a slideshow content block on my homepage, I want just the slideshow button.

                    • Allow gallery slideshows to match the gallery theme color.

                      Currently you can change the gallery theme & color which is great but you can't change the default slideshow background color (black) when an image is selected. How about including the ability to choose the slideshow configuration as well?

                      • Better scale slideshow images

                        I’ve been working on this issue and still feel there’s something you folks need to fix on the Slideshow

                        https://richardkerris.smugmug.com

                        There should be an option to ‘Fit’ images on the screen.

                        Right now, there are zooms into images that are not desired.
                        There are formatting issues on Mobile devices that do not work well.

                        Yet, if I do a ‘slide show’ from lightroom on any device, the images look fine and are not cropped or zoomed.

                        Please look into this - as I love the focus on slideshow for people exploring my site from any device.

                        Cheers!

                        /R

                          • Enable the ability to turn OFF Titles while turning ON Captions in Embeddable Slide Shows. Currently if Captions are ON, so are Titles(?!)

                            Please allow the ability to turn OFF Titles when Captions are turned ON in Embeddable Slide Shows. Suddenly now, when Captions are ON, so are Titles. This is very inconvenient indeed! Allow one or the other or both, but at least let me have Captions while hiding Titles....I've had to go through all my Slideshows and delete titles on slides I want to use a Caption on...

                            • Source Slideshow from Every Photo in a Folder

                              It would be great if the Slideshow could be sourced from a Folder, such that any photo in any gallery in the photo would be used. Right now you can only select one specific gallery but not multiple galleries. We can source from "Items I Choose" but if any new photos are added then they don't get added to the slideshow unless "Items I Choose" is updated.

                                • Enable slideshow block to display fullscreen on iOS

                                  On a page with a slideshow block that is configured with the fullscreen button enabled, that button works great on a computer, but has no effect on an iOS device.

                                  The irony is that a small mobile device would benefit even more from full screen since there's little real estate to begin with.

                                  Please make the fullscreen button effective on iOS (and maybe Android, etc if not already there)

                                  • Slideshow background color independently adjustable from Gallery theme

                                    One of the reasons I commonly have the SmugMug Dark theme is because a given theme color is carried over into the background color of the full-screen Slideshow. I'd like to have the option to set my slideshow and gallery themes to different colors. I typically prefer a black background on my slideshows, but I currently don't have that option if I want the corresponding gallery to have a different theme.

                                    • make the ios app slideshow customizable, e.g. changing the time spent on each image

                                      I think the ios app should allow on to make certain choices about slide shows, e.g. how one picture replaces another (fade vs. other possibilities etc.) and, much more important, how long the slideshow shows each picture.

                                      For example, some may want it to rush through quite quickly, a second or two on each image; others might want to use the smugmug app to show one's pictures as if on an electronic picture frame, hence to show each picture of 20 seconds or more (say).

                                      • Android / Chromecast - Slideshow continues during sleep / screen off

                                        I would love to be able to start the slideshow and then close the lid on my tablet cover. Right now when I do that the slideshow stops. I'm assuming that when the device sleeps this kills the slideshow.

                                        • Customize slideshows

                                          It would be great to have the ability to create a slideshow from just a few photos in a gallery (and the ability to remove certain images from slideshows) or across galleries and have them linkable back to their gallery of origin. This would allow for shorter more targeted slideshows.
