  1. Allow lowercase URL on custom domains

    Currently if one of my clients types in an gallery URL they get a 404 page unless I explain to them that the address contains Capital Letters and where they are.

    It would be great if my smugmug site could work like the rest of the internet and allow me to have all lowercase within the URL.

    It's a little embarrassing to get calls saying the address doesn't work after my clients have passed on the address!

    [Update]: This request is not for the domain name (www.InsertDomainNameHERE.com) to be lowercase, but rather that the gallery / folder names…

    • Easier view of 'date taken' information.

      I have many, many, years worth of pictures that I am uploading so the 'date taken' of a picture is very important. I would like for the 'date taken' information to be visible somehow (other than having to open a photo and then go into the information tab) something similar to iPhoto. If you hover over a gallery in iPhoto, the date appears. I do not want to have to enter all the dates manually, like suggested by Smugmug Help. I know you can date an entire batch, but if you have many different years of pictures in one gallery…

      • Allow duplicate galleries to preserve formatting.

        I am using the same exact galleries for a new year. I want to keep the old gallery organization, and just make a duplicate, delete the old photos, and update the title to reflect the new year.
        This would save me tons of time so that I wouldn't have to recreate the guest upload links and I would just archive the old galleries.

        • A trash/recycle bin for deleted photos

          A helpful feature would be a trash/recycle bin for deleted photos. If we accidentally delete a photo or a gallery, we could go to the trash/recycle bin and retrieve them within a given time period, perhaps 30 days.

          • Let us decide which photos should be pins on My Homepage map

            Almost all of my photos are equipped with GPS data in EXIF block. I have only few galleries but it’s more than 150 photos. But only 150 pins may be shown on My Homepage map. It’s one or two galleries. I can pick a photo which will be a gallery feature photo. Please let us pick photos for My Homepage map.

            • 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…

              • stack variations of images

                Say I've got three versions of the same image, black & white, sepia, and color. I'd like to be able to stack them together. Then the image would appear once in the gallery, and then you'd have a slider/menu/buttons on the side to show the variations of the image.

                • Ability to scope "Most Popular" and "Recent Photos" to certain galleries

                  "Most Popular" and "Recent Photos" should have the ability to limit the scope to certain galleries and not just globally. It would be nice to have these designations for different sections of my site.

                  • Give photographers and clients the ability to create and name folders for collecting images in different ways.

                    Photographer and clients like to create different collections of images beyond just favorites. These might include "photographer favorites","photos for the album", "photos I want to print as gifts" and "please remove these (aka that isn't his wife). This is available on many consumer level services and would be very helpful for wedding and other event photographers.

                      • highlight view of best photos in an album

                        I often have to choose between creating documentary-style albums and creating more professional-looking "highlight" albums. Obviously, it's possible (but messy) to make two separate albums to serve these different purposes. A better solution would be to allow an album to be displayed in one of two modes: "Highlights" and "View All." "Highlights" would allow casual browsers to look through only the best photos of an album (as selected by the album owner), while "View All" would give people with a particular interest in the album content the option to look through every photo I uploaded.

                        • Display most popular photos "this week/month"

                          Essentially, photo popularity should be a dynamic group based on a slice of time (most popular this month, most popular this year, most popular of all time, etc.) because otherwise the most popular photos will always be the ones that have been posted the longest and have had the most time to gather "thumbs up" feedback. I would love to see a Settings option to choose my "Most Popular Photos" by a block of time...something like "Show Most Popular Photos in last Week/Month/Year/Date Range".

                          • Enable alternate names for standard category names

                            I'd like to be able to use my own alternative names for some standard categories, but still enable visitors to SmugMug to find images or categories under the standard category names.

                            For example, I name "Sports" categories as "Sport", because the category title "Sports" looks daft on my site in this part of the world. I use "Aircraft" instead of "Airplanes" for the much the same reason.

                            However, because "Sport" and "Aircraft" are my own category names, no one browsing the "Sports" category will ever see my "Sport" images, nor will an Airplanes" browser ever see my "Aircraft" images and…

                            • Allow grouped gallery viewers to exit a gallery back to the grouped gallery list

                              If a sharegroup has many grouped galleries, SmugMug does not allow sharegroup viewers to exit a gallery to return to the sharegroup "home" listing of grouped galleries so that they can view another gallery. You can turn HIDE OWNER off, but technically-challenged viewers would still not understand how to click on the upper left corner to exit back to sharegroup listing.

                                  • It might be an idea at your end to print according to delivery location? If in Europe print there, if in US print there, thus reducing costs

                                    It might be an idea at your end to print according to delivery location? If in Europe print there, if in US print there, thus reducing shipping costs. Happier customers!

                                      • Enable changes for whole site in stead of Gallery

                                        For some features It’s necessary to adjust each individual gallery. With lots of galleries this is a lot of (error-prone!) work.
                                        Examples:
                                        - try to right-click protect your whole site
                                        - try to remove all keywords
                                        - etc.
                                        I would like the option to do this site wide!

                                        • Site navigation top menu name seperate from sub menu names

                                          The top menu name now shows up at the first sub menu choice when the menu group expands. Assume the top menu is calléd 'Interesting' and the sub menu items are 'Websites', 'Books' and 'Magazines' then it shows four sub menu items, including 'Interesting'. I would like to have the option to set the top menu name as 'group name' and not showing in het expanded sub menu items list.
