  1. Click to Image and Gallery from Slideshow

    Since we can now add a slideshow to our pages very easily, we need to have the option to allow a user to click the slideshow and have them go to that image within the gallery. That way they could like on facebook, share or even buy that image.

    • 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

      • Slideshow of whole folder or user site in random order

        Sometimes I want to see not a single gallery but the whole folder. For example "Nature". It would be nice to have slideshow button available at any level of my site. When pressed on home page it would show all my photos. Then I would not need to use third party software to use my photos as a background for music for example.
        It also should be possible to run slideshow in "shuffle" mode. It is especially useful when slideshow is for more then one gallery.

        Even more advanced feature would be ability to create named presentations that include a…

        • 'Random' and 'Random Start' setting for ALL slideshows

          Would it be possible to add 'Randomize' and 'Random Start' as features in a Slideshow Settings pop-up window when you click the 'Slideshow' button for individual galleries? Currently, one cannot define settings for individual gallery slideshows. These two settings already exist for the homepage gallery. It would be nice to also include them as options for individual gallery slideshow settings...

          For example: When I create a virtual gallery and hit 'Slideshow' to view it, the slideshow always starts at the beginning of the virtual gallery and cycles through--same order every time. I want to be able to view a slideshow…

            Currently we allow random playback for slideshows created using the “Slideshow Content Block” but not in the slideshow gallery settings. The gallery slideshow does not offer this because we felt that it needed to respect the sort order of the gallery. Of course, it would make sense to at least give you the option of overriding the gallery setting by a random option. I’ll add it to our To-Do list but cannot make any claims about when or if we will get to it. As such, I’ll mark this as “Started” because at least the Slideshow Content Block can be played randomly.

          • Let us turn off thumbnails for non-embedded slide shows.

            For standard (non-embedded Slideshows), I want the viewer to be able to

            - Hide Thumbnails
            - Display Thumbnails on bottom
            - Go forward and backwards with keyboard shortcuts

            • 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!

                • Make a JavaScript version of the Embeddable Slideshow

                  Currently, the embeddable slideshow that you provide is Flash-based, and does not work in browsers that do not support flash (e.g. an iPhone). It would be great to have a JavaScript-based embeddable slideshow that would offer the same functionality as the Flash-based version, but be usable even without Flash.

                  • Allow slideshow captions on basic accounts.

                    I understand captions may be displayed on slideshows as an option. But the existing feature requires a power or above account. I suggest making this basic feature available on basic accounts.

                      • Improve slideshows for iPad.

                        There is only a close button and it is tiny, it needs forward and back too. The full screen gallery navigation isn't, it is too difficult to choose display size and the controls are tiny.

                        Flickr gallery display on the ipad is full screen, and uses swipe gestures to navigate forward and backward through the gallery.

                        Smugmug on the desktop is great, smugmug on the iPad needs a lot of improvement.

                        • Slideshow -- Continuous loop instead of stop at last image

                          Currently, the slideshow loops forever. I had cases were a user has their browser window open and runs the slideshows for days which messes up the statistics. It will be great to have a option where the slideshow stops at the end of the last photo in the gallery. Possibly with a manual button that a user can press to view the slide show again.

                            When galleries open directly on the Smugmug slideshow, it is useful to have an overview of what's ahead via thumbnail previews on top or bottom of the slideshow.

                            • update the slideshows

                              After seeing the number of great Flash-based slideshow implementations out there, I find the SmugMug gallery slideshow and the Event page gallery sorely lacking in both technology and aesthetics.

                              1) The UI response is quite low. There's no feedback to tell the user an image is loading. Consequently, they click continually on the 'next' arrow which steps them way past the next image.

                              2) Most flash gallery websites allow the viewer to show/hide the thumbnails. I'd like this option on both the gallery slideshow and the event page slideshow.

                              3) While you can slide the filmstrip in the gallery slideshow,…

                                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.

                                • 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).

                                  • Show Off - Slideshow Configuration - SAVE!

                                    Allow users to save their default settings for a Slideshow configuration, such as "Splash URL" so that they do not need to be entered *every* *single* *time* they are used.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Slideshow -- Provide full customization options to the gallery full screen slideshow

                                        I need to be able to customize the optional slideshow that can be activated within a non-slideshow gallery style (such as the SmugMug style) by the "Slideshow" button in the upper-right corner. This slideshow should have the same options as are provided for the default slideshow that is a gallery style.

                                        • 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.
