  1. add image size presets to the edit settings panel in the SmugMug/LR plugin.

    Please consider adding the option of creating image sizing presets to the edit settings panel in the SmugMug/LR plugin. This will allow users with the click of a button to choose the optimal preset sizing for square, portrait, and landscape images when posting to Instagram and other locations without having to retype the sizing info again and again.

    • Sync Lightroom Folder/Gallery hierarchy to SmugMug

      I've spent several years setting up a hierarchy of folders in Lightroom. I'd like to easily replicate this hierarchy on Smugmug.

      As far as I can tell, I can sync my SmugMug Folders, Galleries and Photos to Lightroom. But I cannot sync in the other direction

      • Prevent photos from being uploaded as multiple copies from Lightroom

        Currently, if a photo appears in multiple Smart-Galleries in the SmugMug Lightroom-Plugin - for example because of its keywords - then multiple copies of those photos are uploaded, treating each of the copies as separate photo.

        It would be helpful, if only one instance of such photos are uploaded and other occurences are treated like collected photos or photos in smart galleries setup on the website.

        • Make SmugMug interface similar to Lightroom'sthat your final image, "JPEG" will be in a "SmugMug" folder and be synced with my web page.

          SmugMug could even sell the apps to use, but I think "loyalty rewards" would be better! many time I want to redo a picture in a gallery, Lightroom's interface just give you a few more options, yet it could all be done with Smugmug, having a permanent catalog on the hard drive where your final JPEG is stored, and you could make changes to the photo anytime, their always changing.

          • Add a way to rate photos

            Please add a way to rate photos. I love the way you can star the best ones in Lightroom and then filter out all the bad photos. It would save so much time looking through them a later on. If this was added to the Lightroom plugin, it could seamlessly carry those ratings over into Smugmug.

            • Add "Collect" to LR Plugin

              It is possible to have a single photo appear in multiple galleries using "Collect". It is not possible to do this with the LR Plugin. It is also possible on the web site to see which photos are collected (the "from" notation on the photo, or the arrow on the thumbnail in the organizer). This would need to be included in the LR Plugin in order to be able to manage photos. If a close match to the Organize Site screen could be added to the plugin that would be ideal for me.

              • Ensure that Republishing a Gallery via Lightroom plugin does not disturb manual re-ordering of photos in Gallery

                Often when I republish a gallery from Lightroom to Smugmug it rearranges the order/sequence I have manually created on Smugmug. It is very important that this not happen because, as you know, sequencing is critically important, and I typically spend a good amount of time and dedicate energy to making sure that my sequencing is ideal. I do not want to have to re-do this every time I republish.

                You may ask why people are sometimes republishing galleries. They may make some small edits or may add a keyword or other reasons. It makes more sense to do these things…

                • The Lightroom plug-in should know when it is dealing with a collected image or smart gallery image when syncing

                  Make the smug mug Lightroom plugin aware that some images in galleries are collected images or are there because they are smart galleries

                  • Prevent the computer to go in sleep mode before it ends the export to the SmugMug gallery.

                    From what I read, on MacOSX every application can manage the power settings of the computer, so your plugin could hold the sleep mode during the export and turn it back on after the job is done. this is what I’m suggesting

                    • Have Lightroom Plugin record last-used Publish settings for each photo.

                      Have Lightroom Plugin record to a meta-data note the last-used Publish settings for each photo, like: Published on 2015-12-10 @17:32 as 3200x1600 @65%. I upload in 2-3 passes, typically, and keeping track of which photos are at which stage is a challenge. I upload a very highly compressed version initially just to quickly populate my galleries with screen-worthy images. I then re-upload a lesser-compressed, but un-retouched image that is good enough for small prints. When a client places an order, only then do I do color-correction and retouching and upload a high-quality image. Being able to glance at the metadata…

                      • Lightroom plugin upload progress information

                        The speed of photo upload via the Lightroom plugin is fine, but when uploading videos (which are bigger in size), the Lightroom behaviour is very confusing.

                        Lightroom does show progress information during the processing of the video, but at the last step - uploading to Smugmug - there is absolutely no feedback; the UI is blocked at "Updating Published Collections", and that's it. It's not clear to the user whether the network upload makes any progress, or is stuck, etc.

                        Could you please add some feedback during the upload phase?

                        • Add gallery setting in Lightroom plugin to include/not include person data

                          Now that Lightroom 6/CC allows users to tag faces, generating "person" keywords, please add a feature to the SmugMug Lightroom plugin that allows us to select in each gallery's settings whether to include or exclude person keywords when we publish to SmugMug.

                          This will allow us to tag faces for easy finding in Lightroom, with the option for keeping names confidential for public SmugMug galleries should we need them.

                          The API exposes keywordType property now, and this Adobe Lightroom SDK Forum post includes information on how this data can be accessed:
                          https://forums.adobe.com/message/7526687#7526687

                            When publishing online, it is much more efficient to simultaneously export to your local hard drive upon upload from within the smugmug publishing pane.

                              • Use the left/right arrows to switch between LR Plugin Sync matches

                                When going through sync matches, I have tried every key combination to switch between the multiple amount of burst mode images, and can only find "enter" to accept a change.

                                But the most obvious key pattern seems like it would be "Right Right, no wait Left, Enter"

                                Thank you.. Here's hoping that EXIF is amended to include milliseconds someday!!

                                • Alerts for when Lightroom Sync has missing files

                                  Create an Alert, and even better a list, for missing images when Synchronizing Photos with the Lightroom PlugIn.

                                  Recently I was trying to get my online and local configurations to meet. The idea being that everything that was on SmugMug was linked to a local file on my computer. What I found was that there were more images on SmugMug than there were local to my computer. I mistook the issue as a bug. Sorry Dev

                                  I would recommend that when one initiates a Sync Photos from the SmugMug PlugIn if there are images on SmugMug alert the user. I…

                                  • Allow upload bandwidth throttling via the Lightroom Plugin app or account settings

                                    Basically what I'm hoping the plugin can do is let one input a max amount of bandwidth, say 128 Kb/sec (About 1Mbps/sec). Only reason being, is when I'm uploading at max speeds my ISP allows for it, it slows down general web browsing, etc. This way it would allow users to update galleries, etc but not slow down all general web usability.

                                    • Create links to photos to share between galleries with Lightroom plugin

                                      I use the Lightroom plugin to manage my Smugmug. One thing missing is the ability to share the same photo in two different galleries. This can be done on the website and is very useful. However it can't be managed through the plugin.

                                        every time I upload a PNG file via SmugMug Lightroom plugin
                                        it turns into a JPG (into the SmugMug file Folder — do not delete)

                                          Unfortunately this is a Lightroom limitation in that it does not support exporting PNG (as you’ll see it can only export JPG, PSD, TIF, DNG, or ‘Original’). Setting it to Original would upload the PNG but without edits, which isn’t what you want.

                                        • Allow the SM Lightroom Plugin to download images from SM

                                          Allow the SM Lightroom Plugin to download images from SM which do not exist in an LR catalog.

                                          I'm sure there are excellent reasons for not allowing download/sync of images not in the LR catalogs, but you might consider that judging by the traffic on the dgrin fora, there are a LOT of us frustrated with Aperture/iPhoto lack of support for sync of any kind. Allowing us to download/mirror **from SM** images not already in LR would be a great way to solve this dilemma.

                                          The SM LR Plugin is a great tool but this would really complete it.
