    add the ability to customize social icons, or add new icons. At a minimum allow multiple "custom" sites.

    add more social icons, or allow customization. There is only 1 custom icon option listed. Add more custom fields so the user can add newer sites.

    • Please have email, text integration in smugmug and not just download.

      Since there are ways to integrate in an app- maybe you can have an app that can text or share the photos instantly by text or email.

          • Add all contacts

            Great site with only a few minor improvements to be great like Phanfare where I come from.
            Add box to add all contacts in address book when sharing by email on website (and in iOS app later).
            Right now, you have to click on one contact at a time. That option should have been there from the start like in Phanfare and should be easy for your team to implement.

            Thanks.

            Pierre

            • Add Whatsapp as one of the social sharing platforms

              I would like to be able to share directly on Whatsapp.

              Whatsapp is the second most used sharing app after facebook!

              Thank you.

                • Offer [IMG] tags without being wrapped in a URL tag

                  Right now the BBCode is a [IMG] tag wrapped in a [url] which will link to access denied page when the users' page is set to private. There should be a way to just share the image without having to be linked to anything.

                  • Photo number in the discription when posting gallery to Facebook

                    Is it possible for you to add the photo numbers to each photo when sharing a whole gallery to Facebook. it would make life a lot easier for me to sell my photos. most of my loss of sales is due to the fact that the people refuse to purchase in Dollars they want ZAR. by adding the photo number when posting it will make it easy for me to sell my photos via EFT. thank you

                    • Automatically show buy button

                      Hi. When I post a photo link on Facebook, it takes scrolling and an extra click to see the Buy button on the bottom. Please let the Buy button show up automatically and at the top or next to the photo so that viewers, especially on mobile phone such as my iPhone, can know it's for sale from the get-go

                      • "Unaccepted" (Shared) Galleries feature

                        This is a feature request which I think would be incredibly useful.

                        I've found that in the past I've sent invitations to my galleries to users / friends -- and they either lose those invitations, or those invitations get sent to spam. Occasionally something goes wrong - maybe the user get busy, maybe they just forget.

                        A month goes buy. And the invitation to the initial gallery is lost. Forever. Where are the pictures to the gallery? Lost. :(

                        Now lets say the user log's in to smugmug after a month or so - just by chance because I, the…

                        • Collect Viewers Email Address to View Galleries (not using Events)

                          Hello,

                          I think it is very important to add an optional email gate to galleries. That way when I share my family session galleries with my clients and they share with their family and friends, I have a way to connect and continue my relationship with people that have viewed my work. This does exist on other platforms but I have been with smugmug since the beginning and would love to stay here.

                          • Provide Permalinks for galleries and photos

                            Currently, URLs for galleries and photos are specific to the folder path in SmugMug. e.g. http://archive.jimvetter.com/Fashion/HOT-COUTURE-2014. If I move a gallery to a different folder (as I might do to reorganize or tidy up my folders), the URL to the gallery also changes. Thus, any links I've published are broken if I move a gallery.

                            I suggest that when a gallery is created, you provide an unchanging permalink to the gallery and its photos. Then I can organize my library any way I like without breaking links.

                            • Allowing individuals to word their own email invitations. Currently you use they or their and the wording is incorrect for me.

                              Allow each person to customize their email invitation if possible. "They" doesn't apply to me and is incorrect on the invitation.
                              Thanks!

                                I'm a convert from the dreaded Photobucket. One good feature that they have is to allow you to select multiple pivcthures in a gallery and generate a bulk load of [img] codes. A one click operation that makes posting pictures to a picture heavy forum a lot easier

                                • Add a way to easily copy and paste BB/HTML links direct from the gallery

                                  Have a simple two three or even 4 lines below each picture as you are looking at the gallery that would contain the Bulletin Board, HTML and maybe even the direct link or IM/E-mail links, for the picture in is most used size, so you do not have to click on each and ever picture, then click share, then choose a size, ect ect.

                                  • Need a global share button on the contacts page please.

                                    it's not unique, it is what I have been used too in Phanfare, and I am certain it won't be difficult for your Smug Mug heroes to create. I can't believe it doesn't already exist.

                                    • Fix direct link view within Facebook app browser (iOS) - No content shown.

                                      When I share a link on Facebook that goes directly to the image I'm posting about, the title, description, and tags are hidden. This is due to the Facebook browser overlay such as how many likes, comments, option to share etc. near the bottom of the Facebook browser.

                                      Over half of Facebook users are mobile users. Most of those users are on Facebook via the Facebook app. This is a bad experience for mobile users as the Facebook app browser covers the engaging content like title, description (tags can be useful as they are links). If you share a SmugMug…

                                      • Restore Share email to Organize

                                        I am often in Organize mode and wish to send a Share email. That capability used to exist, but has been removed. I would like to see that capability reinstated. To send a Share email now I have to exit Organize mode.

                                        • Simplify sharing favourites from a private gallery

                                          My clients want private galleries, but they also want to share their favourites images. Smugmug should make this extremely easy for them. Currently it's far too complicated.

                                          I offer each client a password protected gallery. I want them to be able to select their favourite images, then share only their favourites selection, without the need for a password etc.

                                          Selecting favourites needs to be simplified. Brides just want to click a heart, anything more complicated than that is too complicated. Please make this an option directly on the images in the gallery, rather than in the light box. If you…
