  1. Shortcut keys for all main tools options eg delete, move, edit etc.

    When organising lots of photos, and deleting duplicates here or there, it is always required to use the mouse and go to the tools menu. It would be great to introduce some shortcut keys to speed this up. For example in the tools menu you might see 'Rotate (r)' which would mean you only have to type the key r when displaying a photo to be presented with the rotate options. This can be applied to as many actions as possible, but should ideally be geared towards the action on a single photo. At the moment, 'h' hides photos and…

    • Automatic face tagging as per Picasa

      I dont want to import/transfer facetagging from photos in Picasa - I want the feature native in Smugmug. A second step would be to connect tags to facebook but thats not of key importance - get auto face tagging integrated first.

      • A function to export from any/all galleries all images for submission to copyright office at proper resolution and number for time limit

        Here's a wishlist item for Smugmug: some kind of collection that takes images already in a gallery and puts them into another gallery at the proper resolution to be submitted for copyright registration. The gallery would house the right number so that they could be upload to .gov website in an hour (that's their limit). This would really enable us to upload everything to Smug once and then submit at once and make the process much simpler and more doable. It would help protect photogs better and more aware and make copyright registration more easily accomplished and add value to…

        • Allow us to choose categories instead of/in addition to individual galleries on the "Gallery Picker" page

          On the "Gallery Picker" page, we have two options when adding to a pricelist -- "My Categories" and "My Galleries." To choose galleries to add to a new price list, I click on "my categories," then have to keep opening it until all galleries are shown and individually select them. If I click "my galleries" it shows every gallery that I have. So, I can add all, or none unless I want to choose one at a time (VERY time consuming). An option to select categories would be good.

          • Make it a little harder to delete Address Book users

            The current functionality works perfectly, but is prone to accidental clicks- the "remove" is right next to their names as I'm trying to send them a gallery. Could you guys add a confirm popup/dialog before removing them, or a second "remove" flow with the ability to remove multiple entries at once? Minor, but would be lovely, and hopefully a quick fix.

              • give us a way to remove old "Owner Share" emails because they add up quickly and make for a really long list to scroll through...

                I offer previous buyers a coupon code before I remove/thin a gallery and then remind them before it's expired, so it makes a very long list. Once the gallery is removed or thinned, I don't need those emails in my list.

                  • I would like to have show off badges preserved as they are embedded in many of my websites, need to have that feature added to new smugmug

                    Please add the feature of the show off badges to the new smugmug, it was a great feature that i have added to many of the websites that i own and those i manage. Not sure if this would be difficult to do, but it was a feature i used alot. Would like to see it added back to new smugmug.

                    • Face Detection

                      I had a customer ask me if I could put "face Detection on my site so that she could more easily find pics of her daughter to buy prints of. I know that Apple has used this technology in their editing program, iPhoto. I told her I'd ask. Thank you very much!

                      • Backups need to include the ability to backup comments and pages - a great deal of work goes into those on travel logs

                        Backups without the comments or pages can looses the value of what was created using the tools on Smugmug. A travel log on Smugmug is SO cool - but if all the text and comments disappear ACK!

                        • Bulk edit gallery description

                          Currently if I want to put in something in the description tab for all 100 of my equestrian riders, I have to do so one by one. That is outdated, there should be an option to add it to every description in the sub-categories!

                          • Comments -- Show comments along with a viewer's Event favorites

                            Currently when reviewing a clients favorites, it's not clear whether there is a comment along with that image. It would be ideal if client's comment were displayed as the pro looks at the client's favorites gallery. This would make proofing much easier and faster. A second option would be to allow the comment icon to be "full (i.e solid) when the images has a comment and empty (i.e. outline) of the comment icon, so it's easier to detect.

                            • incorporate forward and reverse arrows and thumbnail options into the cursor as it is dragged across the image.

                              I visited a site recentely and I really enjoyed the way the cursor was incorporated into the web design to allow forward and reverse movements by just holding the cursor over the image so you could navigate through a series by doing this or you could hold the cursor over the middle of the image and you would see a thumb nail icon that would allow you to return to thumbnails with one click.

                                When I play a map the zoom is widened to Europe (!!) This is a joke for a map of a bike-trip or a hike. I have to zoom back manually while play is running.
                                And by the way: Please (!) use google-maps instead of this ugly map.

                                • Upload lock to narrow list of galleries to choose from for uploading

                                  Heres a cool idea... An ability to "lock" a gallery so it does not show up in galleries available to upload to.
                                  For example, when i go to upload I have to go thru a list of EVERY gallery even ones that I am no longer going to add too.

                                  • Maintain zoom level when geotagging multiple photos

                                    Currently when geotagging photos is a gallery the map returns to a world view after each photo and we have to drill down to the map location for each photo. This is a huge inconvenience sometimes even in finding the same location on the map.

                                    My suggestion is while in the tool advancing to each photo keep the last map zoomed view so all we have to do is drop a new pin.

                                    Perhaps if the gallery already has a tagged photo sense that and set the map at that for the starting view.

                                    • provide a button for "fun-size" mini-slideshows to turn into full-screen slideshows

                                      It would be cool if any viewer could launch a full-screen slideshow from a "fun-size" slideshow (the ones other than "badge" in "show off").

                                      • mapThis on keyword selections

                                        If I select photos by keyword then there is no mapThis button. This is even true if I just narrowed the selection coming from a gallery which had the mapThis button.

                                        • let us use mapping without making our pictures visible to the world

                                          I would like to have the ability to manually associate a place name with a gallery as a structured metadata item and use it to indicate the location on a map, *without* having to open my collection to the public or to search engines. Apparently this feature is disabled for people who keep our pictures of family and friends visible only to our family and friends.
