  1. Batch Download Option

    Batch Download

    It would be great to use the site map to check the galleries and folders of galleries that could be downloaded all at once. Having to go gallery by gallery is incredibly tedious.

    • Send custom download links to clients

      It would be so much more flexible if it were possible to send a download link directly to a client.

      1. Open the image organizer in the browser, or open the SmugMug app on your phone;
      2. Select images, or an entire gallery;
      3. Select the maximum image size;
      4. Check a box if the images should be converted to sRGB;
      5. Enter an email address and hit send, or copy a share link.

      A communications person at an NGO who wants an image for their email newsletter requires a different treatment than a magazine photo editor who requests a…

      • create an automatic Download PIN and expiration date

        It would be so helpful to be able to SHARE a gallery with the push of a button that creates a template of the gallery to be emailed to client. Also to auto generate a download PIN so that i do not have to remember and create a new one each time for each gallery. It then expires on the date I ask it to expire. Also want to collect emails from those guests that are on my clients galleries as a guest so that i can use their email as part of my email list.

        • Offer specifically Facebook-size Downloads

          I would like to see a size in "all sizes" that is specifically suited to Facebook's preferred image sizes.

          Many of my clients wish to post their images to Facebook and as we all know FB compresses and destroys image quality of any image posted that doesn't conform to their very specific size (2048 along the longest edge)

          In "all sizes" could be have a size that conforms to this?

          • gallery with different links and different settings without the need to create 2 galleries with different settings with the same photos

            It would be Great to be able with just only one gallery create links with different settings for instance: One with download activated and another without possibility to download, just for viewing without having to create two galleries with the same photos with different settings instead just using the same gallery and what would change was just the links that would be different and would have different settings for the same gallery.

              • 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.

                • 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…

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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?

                        • 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.

                            • 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.

                                  • 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:

                                    • 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…

                                        • Allow Visitors to Download only a Selection of a Galleries Photos

                                          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.
