  1. Full Facebook shop integration

    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.

    • 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.

      • 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.…

        • 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…

                • Publish only flagged images

                  To avoid creating one portfolio and one Smugmug section, I think it is much more practical to use "smugmug as a portfolio" and publish only images "flagged" by the lightroom or by other methods

                  • Generate downloadable csv file for My Order Receipts for Pro Members

                    Pro members often initiate larger orders from multiple clients.

                    While the orders can be viewed under Account Settings/Me/Receipts, there is no way to download the listing as a csv file to track for accounting purposes. Please add this feature to be generated for a specific date range for both summary and full detail listing.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • two way sync with dropbox

                          I use Smugmug's Folders and Galleries to organize photos and videos by date and occasion, and make an attempt to have the SmugMug file structure mirrored by the file structure on my PC in a Folder (with many subfolders), called "Organized Photos". However it is vastly easier to organize photos on SmugMug because of the ability to see the results, than on the PC. In order to keep organized, I have "shoeboxes" on my PC (often in Dropbox too) which are folders into which scans and camera pics are put as they occur, then migrated and organized in SmugMug, and…

                          • Send custom download links to clients

                            It would be so much more flexible if it were possible to send a download link directly to a client.

                            1. Open the image organizer in the browser, or open the SmugMug app on your phone;
                            2. Select images, or an entire gallery;
                            3. Select the maximum image size;
                            4. Check a box if the images should be converted to sRGB;
                            5. Enter an email address and hit send, or copy a share link.

                            A communications person at an NGO who wants an image for their email newsletter requires a different treatment than a magazine photo editor who requests a…

                            • Lightroom Plugin should watch for changes in IPTC Headline field

                              SmugMug correctly displays the information from the IPTC Headline field as an image title on websites, and the SmugMug publish plugin synchronizes this field when an image is re-published.

                              However, the SmugMug Lightroom publish plugin doesn’t automatically mark photos to be re-published when the Headline field is changed. It does this only for the ITPC Title, Caption, and Keywords.

                              For context:

                              This seems like an oversight that was easy to make because Lightroom doesn't show the Headline field in the default metadata view.

                              So why not just rely on the Title field? Well, the Headline field is often more appropriate,…

                              • Skip Duplicates for Folder Uploading

                                It sucks to have to delete 60+ folders (or a majority of folder), then have to upload them again, watermark them again, then make them public. Time is of the essence when people want to view and order their photos. Both of us lose sales when people cant see/order their photos.

                                  I love the Up arrow that you've created to get back to the top of a gallery, but it would be awesome for you to create a Down arrow to take you to the end of a long gallery instantly. As of now, you have to scroll and wait, scroll and wait, etc.

                                  Thanks for your great website. SmugMug is awesome!

                                  • Default sorting by filename for Folders

                                    Is it possible to change the default sorting order to sorting by "filename" instead of capture date for FOLDERS? It would make uploading files to the folders so much easier and save time from having to sort the folders and sub-folders to filename after the upload. Thanks!

                                    • An idea to help users apply custom watermarks to their images

                                      Is there a way to widen the dropdown list that displays when trying to add watermarks in a gallery. I have several watermarks (almost 60) and it would be nice to give more descriptive names if that dropdown was wider. Right now it only show roughly 10 0r 12 characters; 30 characters or so would be so much better for me.

                                        Please go back to where we can order multiple sizes without having to go back to gallery. It was so easy when we could do it in shopping cart.

                                        • Maybe don't do updates to the site during North American working hours?

                                          The subject says it all. Why are the changes being made while people need the site to work?
