  1. Make A Blog Tool In SmugMug

    We already have the journal style, but let's have one that looks just like a blog. Add one picture and then allow title, text, date, time, etc so that it looks just like a blog entry.

    • User email distribution list that notifies user when new pictures are added to a gallery

      I would like the ability to set up an email distribution list for individual galleries. Whenever new pictures are added, an email is sent to the distribution list. This would be very helpful for pictures I post that family and friends are interested in seeing.

      • add a button to pin to pinterest

        Just as you can tweet and facebook a photo, I noticed some blogs now have a "pin" button to pin your photo to pinterest.

        • Client login / create account link / favorite any photo in a gallery

          Several people have requested some version of a client login, but I'm creating a new request to get more specific about how it should work.

          1) Provide a link to sign in / create account so that any visitor can either sign in or create a new account right from the home page or navigation bar (not required to receive an invitation from us, and not required to go back and find the "event" email we sent them months ago if they want to log back in).

          2) We receive notification whenever a new account is created, including name &…

            We released released one part of this Feature Request: The Client Area. Since this request goes a lot further I’m going to leave it open and mark this as “Started”.

            The Client Area takes our Private Sharing feature to the next level by consolidating the photos you’ve shared with a client in one easy-to-find location on your SmugMug website. No longer do they need to keep track of any links you email them.

            Portfolio and Business account holders can see this new client area at XXXX.smugmug.com/client. Just replace “XXXX” with your SmugMug nickname. You can also add a link to the client area in your navigation menu.

            See more at http://news.smugmug.com/2015/05/01/new-feature-client-area/

            • Support Communities on the new SmugMug.

              The Communities feature was eliminated with the new Smugmug release. That feature drives over 90% of the hits to my galleries, though, and I view it as required functionality. Restore support for Communities with the new layout.

              • Offer favorites - on any gallery, not just events.

                Events don't make sense when I'm shooting portraits or families - but frequently I want to offer them a print or several of their own choice as part of the package. Please allow users (with an email address prompt) to pick their favorites and for me to see that centrally - WITHOUT using events.

                Merged additional ideas:
                Professional photographers need an **easy** way to empower clients, allowing them to pick their favorite photographs from existing SmugMug galleries.

                • Allow Folder Views/Organization in Sharegroups

                  Currently, Sharegroups only display a flat view of Galleries which loses any organization of folder structure. Please extend to Sharegroups the same option that the homepage allows and also add subcategory to both homepage and sharegroups.

                    • Choose multiple images for Share tool

                      I like to share a handful of images from my sessions and weddings in my blog and on dgrin. I have to "get a link" for each image and go back and forth between the gallery and get a link page, while copying the link, switching to my blog page, pasting the link there...and then back to the gallery for the next image.

                      It would be so much easier to have a "get multiple links" option. It would take you to a menu of images much like the "move to gallery" option does. I'd like to be able to click…

                        • Better Social Networking Integration for Mobile Users

                          Most people use these social networking sites from their mobile phones while on the go. It is currently VERY difficult (sometimes impossible) for mobile users to simply link to their Smugmug photo/video when posting to their Twitter or Facebook accounts. It can only be done from the non-mobile full version of their Smugmug site using the Share>Be Social option (which doesnt always work correctly anyway in mobile browsers & is also difficult to navigate to).

                          I believe this option should simply be integrated into Smugmug's mobile apps (like SmugShot) with an automatic URL shortener as well.

                            • add a "select all" button to the email page so we can send a mass email to everyone on our list.

                              We often would like to send out a "special offer" to everyone on our email list and it takes forever to click on every single name. We would love to be able to "select all" and send a mass email.

                                It would be nice to have the option of having a telephone number appear on the contact form. There could be a field in the profile for a phone number, and for those that want the number to be shown, provide it in the profile. If you don't want it shown, do provide it in the profile. Really no different that how profile photos are handled

                                  • Integrate a feature which makes it possible to post a complete gallery to a Wordpress blog

                                    Make it possible to share an e.g. newly created gallery on your blog easily. So, it would actually mean an expansion of the "Be social" feature (which only can post a single photo right now). It should be customizable so you can alter the look of the final post (free for smugmug to do something creative here :-) ).

                                    • Comments -- Better support for those using Facebook, Google, Gravatar, Twitter, Yahoo, etc

                                      I'd love to see the comment system enhanced by adding support for users of sites like Facebook, Google, Yahoo, etc. Users with SmugMug accounts get their profile pics displayed, but all other comments are plain. Maybe you can ask these uservoice.com people about it ;-)

                                      • add sharegroup to gallery settings page

                                        On a gallery's settings page, we can add add a gallery to a community.

                                        There should be a duplicate function for Sharegroups on the same page. It would make sharegroups a whole lot easier to use.

                                        Once you pass a certain number of galleries, loading the page to select which ones go into a sharegroup gets quite unwieldy.

                                        • Keep the LinkedIn Icon

                                          I'm sure I'm not the only photographer on SmugMug that works with commercial clients. Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest etc are fine that LinkedIn is just as important. Put it back as an option!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
