  1. Increase the maximum number of photos per gallery

    Some of the races I photograph include up to 2 thousand participants and the resulting photos can easily exceed 10 thousand, even after culling/editing. As it stands now, Smugmug's 5000 image limit per gallery means I need to create at least two galleries per race. I understand 10K would be an extremely large gallery. But so is 5K, so at that point why not go all the way. At least the customers would no longer get confused over which gallery they are in.

    • Offer Deep matte through Bay Photo

      Please add an option to sell deep matte prints from Bayphoto. These prints have no shine and make a better option than matte paper.

      • Mac OS Finder integration

        I am stoked you added the native app for Mac with the menubar - nice work. Still it would be so much easier to just right-click on images in the finder and send them to the site. Any ideas if this will happen?

        • Option to allow event participants to download just their selected favorites

          When I create an event for clients they have the ability to "Favorite" the images they select. Currently they do not have the ability to download just their favorites. It's download the entire gallery or just one at a time. As an admin I can generate that download of just their favorites, but can we remove me from that and allow them to directly from within their access?

          • Length of slideshows

            It would be great is there was a counter to show how many minutes a slideshow was. I embedded a slideshow into a web page and then embedded a music code. If I knew the length of the slideshow I could time it so both ended together.

              • Show folder hierarchy in link to collection original

                In lightbox of collected photo, you show link to original source gallery but don't show the folder hierarchy.
                Instead of showing
                From smart
                assuming it was inside nested folders, it would be better to show
                From folder/subfolder/smart

                  please please please provide some indication on the search results page which would show if there are hits in the various categories (videos, folders, galleries, pages) without having to click on each of those buttons. This is a very misleading screen for viewers who don't use the system very often -- especially in cases where there are no image hits but there are hidden hits in the other categories. Why make viewers click on each of those buttons to find out? Most viewers don't even think of doing that. Extremely counter intuitive.

                  • Single-click remove from collection

                    There is currently no way to remove photos from single collections - at least not with Edge. There is an icon that appears on collected photos. Make that icon clickable with a menu allowing that photo to be removed from that collection.

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • download data collection/log

                            I would like to have better logging and data collection for downloaded images. Maybe a information box can be displayed at time of download to collect things such as name, e-mail, usage (ie facebook, instagram, website, etc). It would be nice to know how one's work is planned on being used and by who. The only other option would be based on a digital download with a base price of $0.00 and a 100% discount, but not process the billing information, but instead collect the user information.

                            • Preserve Creation Dates on Zipped Gallery Files

                              When downloading a gallery (zip file), the creation dates get changed to when the file was zipped (on smugmug's end). Thus, in Finder I can't sort by the original creation dates anymore. I could have used WinZip for PC, to preserve creation dates as they get unzipped, on my end. But on SmugMug's end, is there a way to zip the files, with creation date preservation in mind? Thank you.

                                • Video Backdrop

                                  I would really appreciate if the Video Backdrop didn't get so compressed, and have such low quality. A lot of people have faster internet now that can support automatic HD video playback. I've seen other websites like http://www.shainblumphoto.com/ that have this feature. I would really appreciate if smugmug would update this.

                                  • Page by page Remarketing on Facebook and Google

                                    I’m amazed that a platform as savvy and sophisticated as Smugmug does not help its users to market and remarket on Facebook and Google.
                                    If I had realised this a month ago I probably would have gone with another platform.
                                    As SM say on their website https://www.smugmug.com/pro

                                    "If you’re a photographer who makes a living selling your work, you know that marketing yourself is critical to making your business a success."

                                    Well, I agree completely!!! Remarketing has been around for at least 2 years and so SM is completely behind the curve on this.
                                    Come on!!!

                                    • display a warning when deleting an original photo that is used in collections...

                                      I suggest that whenever an original photo is to be deleted, a warning is displayed that states that 'this photo is collected in 3 galleries"..."do you still want to delete?".... Also, listing all the galleries where it appears would be nice.

                                      Additionally, may want to display an icon on the "original" photo that indicates is it collected in another gallery (the collected ones show an icon, why can't the original)

                                      Thank you...

                                      • Visual cue to identify movies

                                        In the iPad app, movies are identified in the thumbnails with a timestamp showing the length of the movie. In the PC version, there is no visual cue at all unless I hover over the image. Please add a visual cue that we can see without hovering. Synology PhotoStation displays a circle with the "play" button (>) so you know it is a movie. Thanks!

                                        • Fading top edge of folder/gallery title

                                          Currently the title bar on folders and galleries is a (almost) solid bar that hides the lower part of the picture. Synology PhotoStation does the same thing but they fade the top of the bar so it blends in with the picture, making a much more pleasant appearance.
