  1. add a link back to site's homepage on search results page

    When searching through a site and looking at search results, there is no way to get back to the actual website. (At least for basic account websites).
    There's always the link back to www.smugmug.com but there's no link to mywebsite.smugmug.com

    => Please add a link on the search results page to browse back the the website being searched.

    Right now you have to click on a search result which opens a lightbox inside a certain gallery; close the lightbox; then click on the little "home" icon in the breadcrumb bar of that gallery. There should be a breadcrumb bar on…

    • Look into a number recognition software program that identifies athlete numbers on jerseys or bikes and makes them searchable for customers.

      So, I shoot 10000 shots at a motocross event. But I dont have the time or resources to tag each pic with a number in the keyword. So I don't post them all. I basically walk away from a revenue potential because of the amount of work it would entail for me. But if there was a software with smug mug that could recognize a plate number or jersey number so when Jimmy seaches for his number 99 all of the photos in that folder or entire site that has 99 will show up. This can have refinements to the…

        • keep within search results when viewing searched photos

          After a search is performed and I click on thumbnail of one of the results, I'm brought to the original gallery where the photo exists. I then have to keep clicking back to the results page to see another photo. It would be so much more functional to be able to click on a thumbnail of a search result and be brought to a gallery of just those pictures that came up in the results.

          • Add 'buy' buttons to the images in local site Search results

            It should be possible to buy the images displayed in a search result from a search within the local site. Keyword results have this capability. Presently I see no point in displaying the search box.

            • NEW SEARCH BOX DEFAULT OPTIONS CONTROL

              Allow us to control the default option for the new SmugMug search box.

              The search categories are PHOTOS, GALLERIES, VIDEOS, and PHOTOS PLUS VIDEOS. The default setting is PHOTOS. But this doesn't work well with my site and the way that I label things; GALLERIES works better. But the customers don't know that. They would need to click on GALLERIES, which is second from the left. Could we please make this customizable, so that I could move GALLERIES to the left-most position or make it be highlighted by default? Below is a discussion that I had with Tom, one of…

              • Bring back the ability to view photos in original gallery.

                There used to be an option to view a photo in its original gallery after performing a keyword search, but this option does not exist anymore in the New SmugMug. This is a big step backward, in my opinion, because I frequently see keywords that need to be adjusted, but I don't necessarily know what gallery they are for. I used to be able to just click on the keyword, see that there were a bunch of photos that needed to be fixed, use the "view photo in original gallery" option to get to the correct gallery, and then do…

                  The existing square format crops a lot of the images is not satisfactory.

                  • Can we please have a search by image size?

                    Some photos are available in all sizes; Small,
                    Medium, Large, XLarge, X2Large, X3Large and Original. But other photos are only available as smaller sizes. I am asking if there is a way to search for only those photos available in all sizes up to Original

                    Thanks

                    • Narrow search by Photographer, Studio, or Photos

                      When performing a search on the entire SmugMug site from SmugMug's home page, there is currently no way to specify the object of your search. For the past year I have been running concurrent test sites on PhotoShelter and SmugMug. Both are coming up for renewal in the next few weeks. PhotoShelter offers a drop-down box next to the search input box to specify whether your search is for Photographer, Photos, or Agency. If I choose "Photographer" and then enter a name, the results page appears, with two additional options to narrow the list by Country and Specialty. This is…

                      • Allow actions to be executed on search results.

                        I would like to search all of my galleries for a particular keyword and place the resulting images from that search in a new gallery or download the search result images to my computer. Allowing actions on search results would make it easier for members to organize their photos once they are online.

                        • Search for filenames

                          I would like to see a search feature added, that would search all your images (& videos). At first it could do regular fuzzy search in filenames, descriptions, and keywords. Later it could include advanced search to refine based on specific attributes (e.g. date uploaded within certain range, EXIF attributes, etc.).

                          • searching for images based on exif

                            On many occasions I've wanted to be able to search for photos using a certain lens or at a certain ISO. It would be great if just like searching for keywords you could search across all your photos for exif tags.
