  1. A Bulk Gallery Download button for my Visitors

    [Admin update Jan 8, 2015: Merged multiple ideas. Including their text here]

    We are run a underwear company and have several large fashion shoots each year. We shoot and retouch anywhere between 50-100 per shoot. Our clients do not want to click download 100 times. The inability to download entire gallery may be a deal breaker. As the owner of account I can download entire gallery. This should be an easy funtion to add to site?

    ---------

    My *fantasy Bulk Download *looks like a button that shows up on every page of my private gallery where I have enabled the…

      Today, we added a Gallery Setting to show or hide download buttons in your gallery. If it is On, a ‘Download All’ button will appear near the top of the gallery, allowing your visitors and clients to request a zip file containing the entire gallery.

      You can also choose to have a password in order to further control who can get the photos.

      It is available for all account levels.

      More about the feature here: http://news.smugmug.com/2015/06/23/new-feature-gallery-downloads-for-your-visitors/

      • Mobile APP for each gallery to send our clients

        It would be nice to be able to send our clients a APP once their gallery is done. That way they can easily share with friends and family.

          • Gallery Settings -- Bulk Gallery Settings at a Folder Level

            We need to be able to apply gallery changes to all galleries within a Folder. Blanket coverage for that folder and not having to select each gallery individually. The drop down menu to select multiple galleries is tedious.

              You can do this now through the Organizer. To one folder, to many folders, or to your whole site. It will automatically affect galleries within subfolders as well.

            • include feed URLs in the Control Panel

              Somewhere in the user's Control Panel SmugMug should include a listing of various feed URLs; e.g., RSS, KML, etc. that can be copied for use in other applications.

              • Widgets

                Integrate easy "widgets" or buttons for things like facebook, feeds, contact methods (phone, email, etc), Flickr etc. so that one could select the "widgets" for thier SM site and link them without use of HTML.
                This would be great for the footer or a contact page

                • It would be very helpful to be able to turn sub-categories on and off much like I can now make a gallery unlisted.

                  For example I shoot drag racing and have it organized by year. It would be great to have to option to make older years unlisted like you can galleries.

                    Good news! We replaced the concept of categories and sub-categories with folders in the new SmugMug and those can have any of the same visibility and accessibility options that galleries have, including Unlisted.

                  • Allow sorting galleries on homepage alphabetically as well as "most recent" and "position"

                    Every time I upload a new gallery, to get the homepage galleries sorted the way I want them I have to: click "arrange", select "title" from the drop-down menu, click reverse, wait for some behind-the-scene gubbins to take place and hit "save changes".

                    Doing this constantly is a waste of time, surely there must be a quicker way? One ideal solution could be buttons on the list of galleries on the homepage for sorting "A->Z" and "Z->A"

                    For me, this is because I don't always upload galleries in the same order that I shot the images. I prepend the date…

                    • create an way to be able to reply to comments on photos

                      It would be great to be able to reply to any comments made on my photos - sometimes a reply is needed and there doesn't appear to be an easy way to be able to do this... which might mean some form of internal email - Smugmail? :o)

                        The display name that shows up on e-mails and the bio page are keyed to the Billing name for the SM account. Allow for the billing information to be different from the name of the account administrator, or for a customization of the way to communicate from the account. One instance of this situation is my dealing with two non-profits. I am the SM "administrator", but the billing is to a credit card issued to the non-profit, not my name. I now have to change the billing info to my name so that it shows up correctly, but then have…

                            Hi Evan, thanks for contacting us! I’m hoping you can clarify your request, as we already offer the ability to sort photos by “date taken.” You can find this option in the upper right of the Organizer, when viewing one of your galleries. You can read about this functionality in more detail, here: http://help.smugmug.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1213254-what-is-the-organizer-?b_id=1644#sort.

                            If you are requesting something different, can you please submit your request with more detail? Thanks!

                                  I place print orders on behalf of my brides when their wedding package included prints. I want to be able to go to a web page and view all of my personal orders so I can see who I have placed orders for (based on the shipping name and address) and view the details of the orders in case their order was only part of their package and they still have prints left to order.

                                  • proof delay copy all filenames

                                    I would like a one click copy and paste option to grab all filenames in review order so that I can paste into lightroom and instantly pull up all the files that need editing. Lightroom allows space and comma delimitted and would think that would be easy html display that would save us tons of time in copy and pasting one file at a time.

                                    • Straightening tool w/cropping tool

                                      In addition to be able to crop photos before printing, can we add a straightening tool?

                                      • Include "preview" of customize mobile device banner changes please.

                                        Currently there is no way to preview the image chosen for mobile device banner customization. Would like to have that preview feature else user must turn it "on" to the public, then view with a mobile device to see results (good or bad) then turn if off again if it needs adjusting, etc.

                                          I want to be able to develop a second Smugmug site in the background and then switch when ready as I don't want my original site to be a mess during the construction. Also I want to use a second site as a sandbox.

                                          When owner logs in they get a choice of which site to view/workon. On the control panel is a switch as to which site is viewed by the public.Very basic idea but would be great for pros etc...

                                          Could use hidden galleries etc but doesn't really give you the feel of the operation of a new…
