  1. Bring back Google Maps for Map This function.

    MapQuest doesn't compare to Google Maps. It can't find address Google Maps can. It's not as detailed in map view or as clear in satellite view.

    • 301 redirect SmugMug domains to custom domains

      Letting us 301 redirect from the SmugMug domain to our custom domain would help with SEO.

      • Give us a way to easily reset or remove a photo from the "Popular Photos" section.

        There are only a few ways to take photos out of the popular photos section and none are very user friendly. I think there should be a way to reset these photos easily.

        • Removal Requests for Photos

          Let use have a removal request button/form... This way when a model or customer requests a photo removed, it stands out. Going through photos to find that one wrong shot is cumbersome..

          • Have printable invoices for account payments

            Would be great to be able look up invoices on one´s account at Smug Mug.
            Sendthisfile.com has a neat way of doing this i.e. look up old invoices and other account info. Nice, clean and easy.
            Although one generates more invoices there than on SmugMug.

            I ask because I had to get my lost SmugMug invoice today and had to get it emailed to me from an actual SmugMugonian :) but that is ok to.

            Well it´s just a thought to consider.

            Thanks Gummi. Iceland

            • MobileMe Gallery cross over special

              It's now official. Apple killed MobileMe Galleries. As many many user I have now to find the best solution and cross over. Could you create a page showing what MM Gallery has and you will still offer and what is missing (I know a lot more is available, but that's not the point)
              What about a "welcome package" with a special price, and a 1 click easy image transfert tool...

              • Allow collected photos from password protected galleries

                Until last week I could collect photos form password protected galleries however now they disabled that feature. I don't want to have multiple copies of the same photo - sometimes I just want to grab photos from a password protected gallery and feature them. I don't want to give full access to the folder (so I don't want to password protect it) but I want to showcase some of the photos from the gallery. Please please please allow this feature - which was already enabled so there should not be any development time for this :)

                • ClicktoImage option for random.mg

                  Since a lot of people are trying to use random.mg for clicking through a smaller image to the larger one or to the gallery where the image comes from, a clicktoImage option like on the flash slideshow would be great.

                  • Have a way that owners can print thumbnail sized photos of entire galleries

                    As galleries often have pages of photos, it would be nice to be able to print thumbnails of galleries (for reference) when quick browsing and when working on a project. This would allow to quickly see all photos at once.

                    • Death and Smugmug

                      Copied from dgrin forum submission: http://www.dgrin.com/showthread.php?p=1216098

                      Hello,

                      Many of the dgrinners that I've become associated with through this forum seem very passionate about their photographs and their Smugmug websites, especially if they're like me and have spent countless hours trying to get it all "just so." I would even go so far as to consider my Smugmug site as part of my long-term legacy after I'm dead, given what I believe is it the site's meaningful content and undoubted persistence of the Internet.

                      In this regard, I contacted Smugmug to inquire if they have a mortality option whereby an existing…

                        • Create a consumer help section

                          SmugMug needs a Support Section for consumers. When a customer asks me for help on how to download an image I've found that all of SmugMugs technotes are written from the prospective of the site owner. Can you create a TOP LEVEL support section with a handful of useful technotes that explain to the consumer what options they have short of contacting the site owner. Getting a couple of basics like - How do I download the images (if allowed here are the steps). How do I use the BUY feature. Troubleshooting Uploads (from the consumer point of view where…

                              There's a wrench menu when viewing photos in a gallery that has options like Hide, Replace, Delete, etc.

                              Please add Feature to that so that I don't have to open Gallery Settings | Basic | Feature Image, and then navigate the photos all over again.

                                How about an offline standalone version of smugmug that we could install on laptops in order to present a gallery and take orders on site at an event? Then when we return to our home or office and get online, the orders would be transmitted.

                                • "photostream" sync backup incl smugvault

                                  Lifting an idea from Apple and others, it would be nice if uploads to SmugMug were automagically pushed back down to any PCs that are registered as "local copy" file archives.

                                  This would include all content: JPG, RAW, video, galleries/soft-links, etc.

                                  Not only would this minimize bandwidth usage for files that are repeatedly accessed from such computers (at the cost of the initial duplication of bandwidth for in+out), it would provide a distributed site backup mechanism that is completely under the control of your client (cf requests for DVDs!), and it would keep traveling photographers from having to "also" transfer…

                                  • Set up many back-up options for contacting someone if a credit card fails

                                    It's scary to think that data can be lost if there is a billing issue at either Smugmug or Amazon Web Services (for SmugVault) that causes an account to close down. I think there should be multiple (back-up) options included so that this never happens. For example, a user should be able to set it up so that, if there is a billing issue, they can be contacted via e-mail AND via text to a cell phone AND via a 2nd e-mail address, etc.

                                        • group photo sharing

                                          Hi, I know smugmug has a feature where you can email photos to a specific address and it'll automatically get uploaded to an album in your gallery. I just saw this on a tech blog and couldn't help but think that it'll be nice to make this feature even more user friendly to something like what this review of ZangZing is describing and to also like what the phone app "Color" is doing. Does smugmug have any plans to do this ?

                                          Here are two links to the sites I mention above:
