  1. Download link limits

    I would really like there to be a download link download limit. I send these links to clients to download the images but there is not a way to limit the number of times the link is good for. Can this be added?

    Also can there be a counter on the number of downloads? I would love to see this to be able to regulate the download of the images.

    Lastly a custom message would be great to let clients know they reached there limit.

    • Add email notification when photos and/or an entire gallery have been downloaded

      I have clients that download an entire gallery after I have given them a password. I would like to be notified by email when they download the gallery so I can delete what was downloaded or change the password.

      • download data collection/log

        I would like to have better logging and data collection for downloaded images. Maybe a information box can be displayed at time of download to collect things such as name, e-mail, usage (ie facebook, instagram, website, etc). It would be nice to know how one's work is planned on being used and by who. The only other option would be based on a digital download with a base price of $0.00 and a 100% discount, but not process the billing information, but instead collect the user information.

        • Option to allow event participants to download just their selected favorites

          When I create an event for clients they have the ability to "Favorite" the images they select. Currently they do not have the ability to download just their favorites. It's download the entire gallery or just one at a time. As an admin I can generate that download of just their favorites, but can we remove me from that and allow them to directly from within their access?

          • Preserve Creation Dates on Zipped Gallery Files

            When downloading a gallery (zip file), the creation dates get changed to when the file was zipped (on smugmug's end). Thus, in Finder I can't sort by the original creation dates anymore. I could have used WinZip for PC, to preserve creation dates as they get unzipped, on my end. But on SmugMug's end, is there a way to zip the files, with creation date preservation in mind? Thank you.

            • Customize ZIP file names for easier client downloads

              I use SmugMug for many business needs, including sending ZIP files to clients. This is especially so when I'm contracted by real estate brokerages.

              Many clients (especially those lacking technology skills) have major issues finding the downloaded ZIP files. As a way to make the process easier for these clients, is there a way that I can customize the name of the ZIP file instead of it being computer-generated by your system? If there were a way to name the ZIP file by the gallery name, that would reduce a lot of clients headaches. These folks don't understand how to…

              • Develop a widget for offline viewing to accompany gallery download (to preserve picture order, captions, etc)

                I think it is important for the full experience of the online SmugMug slideshow experience be preserved in a downloaded gallery. These include: title, captions, order of appearance, hidden pictures remain hidden, etc.

                To be able to replicate the exact same capabilities offline is immensely important for teachers in the field, salesmen, trade-show exhibitors, adventure photographers, volunteers in remote areas etc. Our captions may be full of educational or marketing information. These are all lost in the downloaded galleries, and cannot be rescued using 3rd party slideshow apps.

                Include a software widget that will display the pictures in the downloaded…

                  Would it be possible to allow us to create the download gallery link through the mobile version of smugmug? Right now, I have to be on a computer in order to create the link to send to the clients. Thanks!

                    It would be great if we could disable the ability to download specific images within a gallery.

                    • Allow visitors to use the "Download All" feature on mobile devices

                      While the "Download All" feature is really great on desktops, many clients use a tablet or other mobile device to view their galleries. That means that they can't be set a unified set of instructions explaining how to get to their gallery and download everything. Wouldn't it be great to have the download option - which just sends an email, after all - available across the board?

                      • Provide a COMPLETE site-wide image backup function

                        Allow owners to download all image files from selected/all galleries, complete with ALL metadata embedded.

                        This would support the Smugmug population who do not use a Lightroom-based upload process. And those who take advantage of Smugmug's agility to maintain their captions & keywords on the fly.

                        Effectively, this would replace the functionality of the Legacy third-party app AlbumFetcher. For selected/all galleries, it downloaded a copy of every image file with ALL of its metadata EMBEDDED -- whether having been originally uploaded OR MAINTAINED WITHIN SMUGMUG. Specifically, it:

                        (1) allowed the bulk download of any number of galleries at once (select…

                        • Option to export a csv file with gallery names and the links to those galleries

                          I would like to get a list of Gallery names and the links to the galleries.
                          For instance, I want to send links to some of my latest trip to some friends. Different friends get different galleries.
                          If it were only a handful of galleries, I would do it manually, but we are talking about 50 from my last trip.
                          A CSV file would be a handy format. Or, display it as a table on a web page.

                          • Apply "Download All" to a Folder

                            Hello ,

                            Just a request.

                            Would love to have the feature to apply the "download all" option to a folder.

                            I have many many galleries under specific folder each year (example 2016) that I need one person with password access to have the ability to download those images for publications, media etc. Others in the organization view the photos only for their input. Having to apply the "download all" option to every gallery is not desirable.

                            Would work for weddings or events as well. You may want to give the Bride/Groom option for downloading all photos that are in many…

                              Currently visitors can download a single photo or download the entire gallery but they cannot download a subset of select photos of a gallery (for example: if they want to download 15 photos out of a gallery of 500 photos). Please add the ability for visitors to select which photos they would like to be included as part of the zip download.

                              • Downloaded files - Can we have an option to keep them in the same order that they are in when manually sorted in a gallery?

                                Can you please add an option to keep downloaded files in the same order that they are in when manually sorted in a gallery? If the files could be renamed at download - perhaps by adding numbers in sequential order - This could easily be accomplished. I worked really hard to arrange a huge gallery, only to realize that the downloaded files will be back in the original order.

                                Thank you!

                                • For Pro's, Send the Download All Emails from Me

                                  I'm 100% behind this, my commercial customers expect an email from me - and a professional one at that. Not mentioning other photographers who are "regular guys" and offering the help of "support heroes". I'm the person they turn to for support as they are paying me. This needs to change fast and there's no way it could be difficult. IF IT is tricky to customise the email to suit each smugmug client then make it a generic email. Something along the lines of...

                                    • Downloading all the returned photos from a keyword search

                                      Downloading all the returned photos from a keyword search. Currently, after I get the photos from a keyword search, I have to click on 1 photo at a time to go to the specific photo gallery, download it, then return to the search list and do it again for the next one. This is very inefficient since I'm doing a photo collage in Photoshop for my son's football which has more than 200 photos to download, one at a time.

                                      • Separate "Download Buttons": Download One and Download All can be turned on independently

                                        I would REALLY WANT the ability pick which way photos can be downloaded, 1 at a time or in mass, when I set up a gallery. I take a lot of photos as a community service to two local high schools and post them to galleries. I don't mind someone downloading a few photos of themselves or friends but I would rather not make it easier in all instances for an entire gallery to be downloaded at once.
