  1. add an FAQ style option in text box

    Here is a link to a style of page (or text box feature) that would be great to offer. https://www.ianjohns.com/faq/
    There is a series of questions and a “+ next to each question that you click to answer.
    I think it’s a great style for FAQ.

    I don’t have any idea whether this is easy or hard for you to add as a feature in text boxes.
    Please pass it along as a serious suggestion.

    Example: https://www.ianjohns.com/faq/

    • See which Pictures are commented

      I wish there was the possibility to indicate which pictures have been commented in a gallery. E.g. a small speech bubble icon on each picture with a comment.

      • Enable (sizeable) printmarks for downloads, disable printmarks for prints

        Smugmug, please enable a function to easily enable printmarks for digital download purchases, and disable printmarks for prints.

        I have a need to allow my customers to purchase digital downloads with a printmark for social media sharing, etc. (great for marketing). The printmark needs to be sized and positioned where it is visible and not easily cropped out. (Smugmug's current 1% size for printmarks makes them microscopic and illegible on web-resolution images).

        However, there needs to be a simple function to disable printmarks on prints sold from the same gallery. Currently, Smugmug's workaround is to enable printmarks for the gallery…

        • option to add a gallery to multiple packages at once, rather than other way around

          When I add a gallery, I have to go in to each package I've set up, and add that gallery. I have sports galleries, and package options to choose different numbers of prints: a package for 10 prints, 15, 25, 50, 75 etc... packages for keepsakes- buttons, print combos etc...

          It's extremely time-consuming for me to have to go into each package I've created and click through all of the folders etc to add one gallery- TO EACH PACKAGE. urgh.

          Is there a way you can reverse engineer it, so that each gallery can choose what packages with which they…

          • Download link limits

            I would really like there to be a download link download limit. I send these links to clients to download the images but there is not a way to limit the number of times the link is good for. Can this be added?

            Also can there be a counter on the number of downloads? I would love to see this to be able to regulate the download of the images.

            Lastly a custom message would be great to let clients know they reached there limit.

              • Add all contacts

                Great site with only a few minor improvements to be great like Phanfare where I come from.
                Add box to add all contacts in address book when sharing by email on website (and in iOS app later).
                Right now, you have to click on one contact at a time. That option should have been there from the start like in Phanfare and should be easy for your team to implement.

                Thanks.

                Pierre

                  I would like to be able to share directly on Whatsapp.

                  Whatsapp is the second most used sharing app after facebook!

                  • make it possible to see profits broken down per site that sales come from.

                    At times, I have to share the profit with a client.
                    As is now, I have to look through each sale to see what site it came from. I can only see that by the purchasers address.
                    BUT there will come a time when the address will be of no use because there will be several sites in say NYC or Philly...
                    I would like it that I can see how much each site is making per pay period. Also the profit estimate is not the same as the actual payment.

                    • Allow us to have a say before you give our clients unnecessary refunds

                      I would like to request that when my customers contact SmugMug in regards to their orders, that I am notified first before decisions are made by SmugMug to give them refunds. I have now had thousands of dollars of profits refunded to my clients, when I could have taken care of the situation and avoided the need for a refund. I would like a note put on my account to notify me of client contact before a refund is given. I understand your “satisfaction guarantee”, but am frustrated that you are dealing with my clients and not allowing me to…

                      • Enable Java in order to run services from Sumo.com

                        I have another website where I run a 3rd party service from Sumo.com

                        The service is a pop up window/opt-in window allowing me to collect email address or run promotions among other things.

                        Was disappointed when I realized I could not install

                        • Add a social media feed

                          You really need to add the ability to show a live social media feed on the site. This is billy basics for any business website, let alone a photographic one.

                          You guys even have a 'FB Like' Button on your homepage!!

                            • Allow captains of at least a dozen lines to display below slideshow photos

                              Oh, I am so sad! This past week I explored a number of photo hosting sites and in every other respect, I like Smugmug the best, but this is just fatal.

                              Yes, I could suggest it as a feature but even if Smugmug were to go for it, it will take some time and by then it will be too late.

                              Thank you for your effort.

                                • Use a more discrete icon/badge for private galleries

                                  I am using Smugmug in a personal "lockdown" mode where each and every gallery is private. Unfortunately this means that I see the "Private" badge in the center of each gallery thumbnail. Not very pretty and kind of distracting...
                                  I understand that this kind of information is essential and must be displayed, but maybe you can come up with a more discrete style (like a lock symbol in one of the corners, for example).
                                  Thanks for the great work! Best

                                  • Action-on-click option to have a slideshow or lightbox open

                                    I would like to see another option in the multiple photo content block - specifically in the "action on click" drop down. It would be nice to be able to use the collage landscape feature and have the ability to choose another option where one can have a mini slideshow or window pop up where a larger version of the selected image can be viewed by the client. I understand that there is currently an option to set up something similar to this would be to open it in a lightbox window. Problem is, I don't want the client/viewer to…

                                    • New payment method "Alipay"

                                      Good morning dear all,

                                      I have a business suggestion. I would like to ask your development team to think about including "Alipay" as a payment method.

                                      To the laymen, Alipay is an online payment method which is intetraged in Alibaba, a huge e-commerce portal equivalent to Amazon. It is is some ways better than Paypal as you have in the App a QR scanning tool to pay.

                                      For example, say you want to sell a photo to a chinese customer for a certain price, you can send the QR code with the price to his personal "wallet" and he will…

                                      • collection of individual photos from the gallery browser

                                        I want to be able to collect a photo when I'm looking at the large view in the gallery browser. At the moment, you have to do this from the organizer (e.g., via wrench > collect). But these thumbnails are too small to be useful in picking which pics you want to collect. I realize that there is a problem of having to pick the destination for each picture, but you can just have "collect to last target" as the default. All you need is a new menu item on the wrench in the gallery browser:

                                        wrench > collect >…

                                        • allow users to upload images to gallery featured image instead of choosing an already uploaded image.

                                          Instead of having to choose an already uploaded image for the folder/gallery featured image, allow users to upload images that aren't displayed elsewhere. This would be useful for uploading client images or coming soon images.
