  1. Option to include or exclude watermarks on downloads through app

    It would be really useful to have the option, within the "settings" for the iPad app, to choose whether or not to include your logo with your downloaded image. It's great to be able to access the original files when needed, but it's also really valuable for my business to have easy access to lower resolution watermarked images for publicity on Facebook.

    • Allow the ability to show keywords when mouse is hovered near the bottom of the image across all gallery types.

      Currently, when you are logged into the owners account, when you select an image in a gallery and move your mouse to the bottom of the image, all of the keywords are visible. If the gallery is private, then users who you've invited to the gallery, cannot see the keywords when hovering their mouse near the bottom of the image. This should be a setting that you can enable. The search within a private gallery works fine but the keywords cannot be made available to invited users. Please add this feature.

      • see which users are most active on your page

        My site is completely closed off to the outside world. I have a few galleries that I invited specific people to access. Within the "Statistics" page in "Account Settings", I can see how popular my site is but it doesn't give me any information about WHO is visiting my site. Since my site is locked off and only accessible by specific users, I'd love to see which specific users are accessing my site the most and which galleries are their favorites.

        • Keep position of screen when removing an image from gallery

          When removing photos from a gallery, after removal the gallery view defaults to the top of (beginning) of the gallery.
          Instead, please leave the gallery view to where it was right before the remove action.

          • Collect Viewers Email Address to View Galleries (not using Events)

            Hello,

            I think it is very important to add an optional email gate to galleries. That way when I share my family session galleries with my clients and they share with their family and friends, I have a way to connect and continue my relationship with people that have viewed my work. This does exist on other platforms but I have been with smugmug since the beginning and would love to stay here.

            • Password protection for app

              It would be great if the device app had the option of using a password. I've seen this on third party SmugMug apps which is great and it would be great if that was an option on the official app.

              • implement a "Magic zoom" by magictoolbox, feature (or similar ) into you viewing options. It provides smaller samples - harder to copy

                I feel it would be good if SM implemented a feature into their viewing options like "Magic zoom" by magictoolbox.
                This allows small high-res samples making it harder to copy yet easier for users to see the quality of the photo they may wish to buy.

                Perhaps a premium option??

                Please . . .

                • Please add option to import from Google Drive

                  You offer the ability to import from Google Photos but not from Google Drive. Google Drive makes it easier for me to organise photos and to import from here will help a lot.

                  • Sequence Shot Pricing

                    I sell digital downloads of sports events, and would like to be able to offer athletes the ability to buy sequence shots at a discount. So, for example, if your son was in the long jump and I took a six shot sequence of his jump, I would like for you to be able to buy the six shots for $40 instead of paying $10 for each shot.

                    I don't want to offer simple quantity discounts because some parents of athletes tell me that if I do that they will collect money from the other parents and buy EVERYTHING as…

                    • Consistent European language and measurement support for shopping cart

                      If you will please add this as a friendly suggestion to the wish list:

                      If you could make the shopping experience more user friendly for European customers by enabling consistent use of one language only.

                      For example I live in Germany and for my clients I would need to have all print measurements in cm, not in inch. Also nobody here knows what 'lustre' means.

                      One way would be if we could custom edit the price list. Another one would be if Loxley Colours would offer translated price lists.

                      Thank you for listening, Hannes

                      • Allow the generation of multiple [img] codes from a selection of photographs. Makes posting to a forum in bulk a lot easier

                        I'm a convert from the dreaded Photobucket. One good feature that they have is to allow you to select multiple pivcthures in a gallery and generate a bulk load of [img] codes. A one click operation that makes posting pictures to a picture heavy forum a lot easier

                        • Add a way to easily copy and paste BB/HTML links direct from the gallery

                          Have a simple two three or even 4 lines below each picture as you are looking at the gallery that would contain the Bulletin Board, HTML and maybe even the direct link or IM/E-mail links, for the picture in is most used size, so you do not have to click on each and ever picture, then click share, then choose a size, ect ect.

                          • Fix videos so they look good from the first frame

                            The first 5-6 seconds of my SmugMug videos look very bad while SmugMug's player is trying to determine the user's connection speed

                            Personally, if I clicked on a video play button, and saw the pixelated mess SmugMug is serving up, I would close the window ASAP and go look at something else. I am too embarrassed to ask friends and relatives to look my videos on SmugMug due to the poor start-up quality.

                            Amateur videos posted on Flikr, YouTube, etc. do not have this problem

                            Please fix this.

                                  We are former Phanfare users and we're fully migrated over. Regarding guest uploading of photos - we're aware that we can create albums and galleries for specific events and link those to guest users to upload photos. As a matter of fact, we've done that and are pleased with the results.

                                  Our question is, in Phanfare, we had a general link for anybody to upload photos to a dropbox, which dropped it in Phanfare, along with the name of the user and the user's email. We made that link available on our website for anybody to uploads photos. For example,…

                                    • allow us to register additional emails on the account

                                      ... in particular, to let us interact with your Support Heroes from other emails besides the one used to register the account.

                                      The solution could be combined with other requests, e.g.:

                                      • Default to printed photos

                                        So my customer just messaged me because he's clicked buy within the gallery and it defaults to printed photos with the option to change product which he didn't find very intuitive and didn't realise you needed to click change product. If you select an image first you are given the choice of prints, wall art, keepsakes or downloads. Why default to prints in the gallery? It's a bit confusing. Can this not be changed to the same options regardless of what order a client selects purchase?

                                        • Ability to EMPHASISE fotos in a gallery

                                          Adobe Revel had this feature:

                                          give the photographer the ability to select SPECIFIC FOTOS a GALLERY, that are shown EMPHASISED (bigger - about 2 times) in a gallery.

                                          Extra: To take it even further, these informations could be read from stars in the meta-data.

                                          Example: Event fotos: Users tend to pick / download the 2nd or 3rd best shot! Never the BEST → If it would be shown bigger, they would tent to download the best.
