  1. Automatic content tagging

    Google has recently raised the bar when it comes to auto tagging pictures. Their algorithms are now able to identify a wide variety of things from animals to people's faces to items in the picture. It would really be fantastic if SmugMug would either license the technology to do this (preferable) or implement their own.

      • Save HEIC / HEIF photos to SmugMug

        Currently the iOS app converts photos saved in Apple's new HEIC format into a JPG image, and then uploads that. If I go to download the photo, I get a JPG back. If I had deleted the photo on my phone, I would have lost the HEIC photo.

        When will SmugMug support HEIC format, now that Apple has made it the default on iOS 11? Without SmugMug supporting it, I would have to convert to JPG, defeating the purpose (and benefit) of shooting in HEIC.

        I would hope this is on the roadmap, as others like Google Photos have already…

        • Disallow Screenshots Of Our Images Using Cell Phones

          People taking screenshots of our photos is a huge problem. SmugMug needs to do more to combat this problem. Watermarks work great, but so many people don't care about them. Plus, there's apps and software that remove watermarks. I don't know how many times I have seen someone post on social media a screenshot of a photo of themselves from my website.
          I know there is technology with some apps, and I'm pretty sure websites as well, that don't allow your cell phone to take a screenshot. This technology needs to be applied to our SmugMug websites.

          • Improve the Text Block Editor

            This is a request to consolidate all the piecemeal requests for a real text editor in Text Blocks. I just finished building a Page-heavy site, and was surprised to discover that nearly every block of text needed to be built in HTML. Even simple formatting such as bulleted lists and mail-to links cannot be accommodated in a Text Block. I've seen first-hand how this deters new subscribers. See:

            • Gallery settings

              I think you should be able to change settings from the app, or a web browser on your phone. For example I need to change my gallery settings to show the filenames, because by default it’s hidden. I can’t do this from a mobile device on the website, or the app. Also, would be nice if you could generate gallery download links from the app, or on mobile device web browser.

                • Add a 'Filter by' function to image galleries.

                  I often see an option in more modern website templates, (wordpress etc) where you may have a large gallery of EG flowers, but you want to help visitors to easily see and choose between types. The gallery can be populated with preset titles, (that act like clicking on a keyword) view Red Flowers, Purple Flowers, Yellow Flowers, Blue Flowers, Most Popular or View All. Clicking on any of these options will quickly clear all images from the screen except your chosen colour.

                  • Line breaks when cutting an pasting text

                    For the love of humanity, why on earth do you not honor line breaks when cutting and pasting text into a text block? This is not a FEATURE request, it's insane that you do not do this.

                    Please allow pasting of text as it was saved, with <br> or however everyone else IN THE UNIVERSE honors line breaks in the clipboard.

                      • Why don't you make it easier for non-Smugmug users to make comments on photos.

                        I email friends by photos on Smugmug but hardly any ever make comments using the comment icon at the bottom right of the photo. If they make a comment, and many do, they just email me the comment.
                        Why don't you make it easier for non-Smugmug users to make comments on photos. The comment section could be more user friendly and it would be used much more by friends to visit Smugmug.

                        • Text Box Editor: Add Background Color and Enhace Editor Options

                          I have two requests to enhance flexibility of Content Boxes, and Text Boxes in particular.

                          1) Add the option to have a background color and opacity slider specific to an individual content box. This would be especially handy for text boxes, where background images can interfere with the legibility of the text.

                          2) Add a few more text options similar to what is available with Google docs, such as options to choose fonts, color, bullets, numbering, indentation and tabs...

                            Like shopify are doing there should be a button that pushes your entire catalogue to your facebook shop. The facebook shop will be the only way to sell stock on Instagram once that goes live.

                            • To keep existing menus and their content when changing the whole site design.

                              For example, I want to change my site design from a Ludwig based one, to a Nix based one. But I have to create and set up all my menus and their corresponding pages all over again. The menus and their pages should be able to be saved or not altered when switching site designs.

                              • Stats Page To See Extended Info From External Failed Password Attempts

                                Smugmug already sends you an email alerting you of the event which is great but it would be great to be able to find all of the failed logins to all of my galleries in one place.

                                Info the the page might show:

                                - Find out where the user is coming from (where they found the link to the gallery... direct/google/facebook).
                                - See if the user actually got into the gallery of not.
                                - If they've visited your site previously using the correct password(not someone to be worried about).

                                I'm sure there are a lot more things you could include.…

                                • Enhance your API or allow folder syncing from our computers

                                  Today you allow to drag and drop a folder and the subfolders are created as galleries.

                                  We need a way to be able to select a folder in our local computers (Mac and PC) and that the whole folder structure gets synced to SmugMug.

                                  Folders need to get created as folders. If the next level is a folder with pictures the this needs to be created as a gallery.
                                  If the second subfolder is just a folder then it should be created as a folder too, this way the file structure would be respected.

                                  We need this so we can…

                                  • Privacy Vs Customization

                                    From a broad perspective, it doesn’t seem like one should have to sacrifice privacy in order to enjoy some of the great features of Smugmug.
                                    Could you allow users to "hide owner" but still be able to customize (various backgrounds and the like)? Maybe worth a review by your system analysts?
                                    Thanks and regards, Jim

                                    • Please add “frame your photo" as an option before checking out! Please. and maybe framing should be in wall art as well. Not as an add-on

                                      Framing a photo is one of the most important parts of the entire website buying images. But yet, it is nearly impossible to find which makes no sense. I tried many times on my own to find framing and couldn't until I contacted support and even then it was tough. It should be very obvious and before you check out. It's all so confusing that it's not a wall art option, it should be both under prints and wall art. Please, Please make this change right away. Thanks!

                                      • Pre-fill owner's email address when sharing

                                        Hello SmugMug Support HEROs.

                                        I create albums regularly, and create links to allow others to contribute to the album using the upload sharing link option. After adding my keyword, and seeing the link the site creates, I have to copy and paste this link into my email program.

                                        Would it be possible to have on this page a simple "email gallery and (if selected) upload link(s) to an email address that you can specify somewhere as the default email on file for such a purpose in settings, such that it would create a canned email message that I could then…

                                        • Embedding a Tiled View

                                          Allow for embedding of a tiled view instead of just a slideshow.
