  1. Support iPad etc with embedded video player

    The iPad & iPhone are becoming ubiquitous so using the standard SmugMug embedded Flash video player on websites doesn't cut it any more. We really need the player to use Flash for those browsers that don't support HTML5 (Internet Explorer) & use the HTML5 player built into those browsers that don't support Flash (iPad, iPhone, iPod). The embedded player for YouTube, Vimeo & JW Flash Player all work this way now. Why can't SmugMug deliver this functionality? I really cannot recommend or use SmugMug for hosting video any more when so many users will just see a black box instead…

    • Offer mounting, texture, and protective spray to prints

      Before coming to SmugMug, all of my prints 8x10 or larger were only offered mounted, textured, and sprayed. It was a really nice touch that was VERY well received by my clients. Please, please, please!!!

      • offer a variable speed choice on the Slideshow mode

        May I suggest a variable speed choice on the Slideshow mode, one that offers MUCH shorter choices, and STICKS at the chosen speed so that it becomes the default for later use in other galleries?

        The present Fast is way too slow for me sometimes, and a broader choice of speeds (1 - 8, perhaps) would be far more useful than the 3 very long current choices. I realize that the speed will reflect my Internet reception speeds.

          In New SmugMug, with any account that is Power and above, you can customize the speed of your gallery slideshow. To change it, go to any gallery, click Customize > Content and Design. From there, hover over the images in the gallery and click the wrench in the top left corner of the content block. When the tools menu opens you’ll see the option to select ‘Slideshow’ at the bottom of the list. Click that and change the speed to your preference :).

          If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us at feedback@smugmug.com.

        • Allow galleries to be configured like folder pages, eg size, spacing etc

          With the 'new smugmug' you can configure folder pages to change the spacing between thumbnails, change the size, put the title inside or outside of the thumbnail

          but when you get to a gallery of actual photos, you get what you are given, no configuration at all other than choosing the base style - collage, square, etc

          This seems like a major omission in this new configurable smugmug!

                SmugMug will dynamically display video in Flash or HTML5 depending on the end viewer’s browsing setup. If a viewer has Flash available, we will utilize our Flash player. Otherwise, they will be able to take advantage of HTML5 video. Thanks for your support!

                • Contact Form Improvement

                  I just signed up for a pro account. If people ordering prints have issues I want them to contact me so I set up a contact form. There are what I would consider two major issues with this form. 1. There is not reCAPTCHA or challenge question on the form so it will be only a matter of time when the bots will start hitting up this form with tons of SPAM. 2. After sending an email, me email address is revealed in a box for about five seconds stating any replies will be send to my email. My email…

                    We take your email security seriously. Your email address is never displayed for a spam bot to steal, despite it temporarily showing up in front of you. Additionally, the manner in which we generate the contact form allows us to prevent spam from being sent through in. In fact, in the 7 years I’ve been a SmugMug customer I’ve never received a spam message through it.

                  • 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/

                        This is now fully complete and works for both the slideshow style as well as the Full-screen Slideshow.

                        To enable titles and captions or edit the various aspects, follow these steps:

                        1. Go into customization on a gallery page (“Content and Design”).
                        2. Click on the Content Block with the gallery photos.
                        3. Choose the Slideshow Style and customize it.

                        Note: You need to have a Power account or above.

                          Hi, you can accomplish this now in one of two ways. Use our collect photos feature, and collect the photos from multiple galleries into one new gallery, and use that for your slideshow. Or, you can use keywords on the photos you want to use for your slideshow, across many galleries, and then use that keyword as your source for the slideshow. Need help?

                          Galleries on IPAD APP do not update when you add new photos to a gallery after your first viewing with the IPAD. I like to keep a favorites folder for presentations with clients, and I update this gallery often. Currently the APP will not update after your first view and the only way to update is reinstall the app!

                          • Anonymous Embeddable Links

                            On the embeddable links section of Smugmug allow the users to chose 'Anonymous'. This protects the address of you site when you prefer to keep it anonymous.

                            My site is intended for friends and family, and while nothing on their is particularly private, when posting on internet forums I would prefer it if users could not simply check the 'properties' of the posted picture, derive my site name and peruse thru my pictures, not intended for them.

                            • Add an option to the SmugMug Android application to only upload when connected to WiFi.

                              I add videos and photos to the upload queue when I'm on the go. They start uploading immediately which eats into my data allowance, especially for videos. An option to only upload when connected to WiFi would be fantastic.

                              • sort feature by time taken vs modified...

                                if you have two photographers you have to manually sort the photos to keep them in order of when the photo was taken
                                date is the same - so there is no distinction
                                date modified may be all over the place and will not keep photos in order...

                                  Thanks for the feedback!

                                  We actually sort images by Date Taken all the way down to the time they were taken. If you click the info button on your images you can see the time stamp in your EXIF data and check the sort order based on that info!

                                  If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us at feedback@smugmug.com.

                                  To make a change on an entire set of galleries within a sub category, there should be a SELECT ALL option once you're in the option to change settings for the sub category. (Instead of clicking 68 separate times to include the entire set, as I had to do this morning.)

                                  • Better, Bigger, Simpler and more Beautiful site/gallery themes.

                                    Please provide us with more options to customize the experience of the gallery. I would prefer themes that cut and reduce unnecessary menus and settings, and puts more options under drop down menus to reduce clutter.

                                    • Target, Title, Alt options for "Get a Link"

                                      In the "Get a Link" dialog, especially for embeddable HTML links, I would like to see a checkbox that enables/disables addition of target="_blank" tags in the link.

                                      Even better, do the same for "Title" and "Alt" tags with a textbox to enter/edit the text in these if desired.

                                      I do find it helpful to have the blog link but I find I spend too much time adding the target and editing other tags when constructing a blog post.

                                        • permit sorting of images in galleries by time uploaded

                                          Permits users to arrange photos on local computer prior to upload, and add them to the front of a large gallery, so viewers see new images first, but does not tie them to time shot or processed--which may not be an appropriate viewing order.
