  1. Multiple Photographer sub-accounts

    We need the ability to issue individual sub-accounts when several photographers are shooting an event(s). Example: A high school website with multiple sports and event galleries where each gallery has its own photographer. Each photographer would be responsible for uploads to their respective gallery/category/subcategory. This would ensure limited access to the site and reduce the likelihood that an inappropriate photo is uploaded. Printroom already has this feature for $49 per sub-account.

    -----------

    For our purposes, it would be wonderful to have multiple logins with tracking, and the ability to select which login has access to certain functions. For example, it…

      • Make Pro Payment Payouts In Real Time

        It would be nice if sales payments to pro subscribers were sent out in reall time and direct deposited into our bank accounts or paypal accounts instead of having to wait a month for our money. Even byweekly would be nice.

        • Bitcoin -- Allow customers, and Pro SmugMug users, to pay with BTC!

          I'd love if SmugMug would allow people to buy photography with Bitcoin, a virtual currency which is making phenomenal ground. Recently, several big name online sites, (Wordpress and Reddit), have started accepting Bitcoin payments so it's only a matter of time before it becomes the industry standard for online payment. Say goodbye to outrageous credit card merchant fees.

          What is Bitcoin? Watch this quick 1:44 video.

          Bitcoin is an internet currency that allows one to accept payments with extremely low transaction fees. Users pay miners per transaction so it is included on the blockchain; A digital ledger of every…

          • Multi-year renewals

            It's nice that we can give the gift of smugmug to others but current pros don't have that option. I would like the option to renew multi years also

            • Pay for the smugmug website subscription direct from profits

              Pay for smugmug website subscription direct from profits?

              This month i had an issue with my bank so the funds for my subscription haven't been paid directly and i now have to wait to be re-billed to make new uploads, however i have more than enough profit on the site waiting to be paid to me.

              Have you ever considered allowing business members to pay for their subscription direct from our smugmug account profits? I'm sure it would be easy to implement your end and it would also save us a bit of money as the seller because it removes…

              • add gift subscription renewals

                I would like the option to renew another user's subscription. i.e. a gift subscription but a renewal, not a new account. Or a "gift card" that could be used towards anything on smugmug, not just prints.

                • Have printable invoices for account payments

                  Would be great to be able look up invoices on one´s account at Smug Mug.
                  Sendthisfile.com has a neat way of doing this i.e. look up old invoices and other account info. Nice, clean and easy.
                  Although one generates more invoices there than on SmugMug.

                  I ask because I had to get my lost SmugMug invoice today and had to get it emailed to me from an actual SmugMugonian :) but that is ok to.

                  Well it´s just a thought to consider.

                  Thanks Gummi. Iceland

                  • Enable Facebook login-based registration for guest accounts

                    For most people, creating a yet another account, no matter how quick, is still a hassle (not to mention remembering they have one, and remembering a password for it).

                    Please allow registration with Facebook login for guest accounts, so that private sharing with Facebook people is easier.

                    • Allow pro users to have a separate Smugmug site for their non-business photos

                      It would be nice to have a separate Smugmug site for my personal photos, to keep them separate from business photos.

                      For example, my child's birthday party photos that I post for friends and family to see aren't really relevant to the ones I'd like to sell to people. I would like to be able to keep them separate from the business part of my site, without having to buy a second account.

                      It would be great if it had the features of a power-user account, so that I could keep a custom domain name to point to them. I…

                        • Add family accounts

                          My wife and I take pictures together and want to be able to organize them together. But today, that requires sharing the password to one account. It would be really nice if we could buy a "family" account, where we could each have our own login, but would then have equal full control over the account -- the ability to add and upload galleries, organize things, delete, etc. I realize this has the potential for abuse, but I think that could be managed. I'd be happy to pay somewhat more for this (though I think having to pay for an…

                            • Death and Smugmug

                              Copied from dgrin forum submission: http://www.dgrin.com/showthread.php?p=1216098

                              Hello,

                              Many of the dgrinners that I've become associated with through this forum seem very passionate about their photographs and their Smugmug websites, especially if they're like me and have spent countless hours trying to get it all "just so." I would even go so far as to consider my Smugmug site as part of my long-term legacy after I'm dead, given what I believe is it the site's meaningful content and undoubted persistence of the Internet.

                              In this regard, I contacted Smugmug to inquire if they have a mortality option whereby an existing…

                                • add Company option to Account Settings page

                                  By adding a Company option people who are operating as a company can have the Company listed as their name vs their "real" name. This allows the branding to be the same from webpage, facebook, smugmug, etc.

                                  • Semi-Pro account / shared revenue of sold pictures

                                    I think it would be a nice idea to have a cheap semi-pro account (not more expensive than the standard account) that allows selling photos at a user-defined price, while smugmug gets 50% (or maybe even more) of the revenue. That allows an amateur photographer to see whether there is any potential to sell the pictures.

                                      • Allow for multiple credit cards. We want to use a different credit card for subscription renewal, vs different credit card for purchasing.

                                        Allow for multiple credit cards. We want to use a different credit card for subscription renewal, vs different credit card for purchasing prints vs different credit card for purchasing merchandise, etc.... Kind of like Amazon lets you have several credit cards on file, that can select which to use at checkout.

                                        • Bundle your plans with optional Adobe Lightroom + PhotoShop subscription

                                          It would be awesome if you could for example offer one version of your "Power" plan as it is today, and a second "Power + Adobe LR/PS" which would include the annual Lightroom/PhotoShop subscription, as well.
