  1. Create virtual galleries based on keywords

    All SmuMug widgets are often based on galleries. It would be nice if we can upload all our photos in one or two galleries for exemple and enable the creation of virtual galleries based on the photos of other choosen galleries, filtered by some tags (keyworkds).

    It would for exemple allow to have a base gallery called All Photos and in exemple another one virtual called Landscape, which will be created by taking all photos from All Photos having the tag landscape.

    It will simplify a lot the management through Lightroom plugin and tagging system, avoid duplication of photos and…

    • Salute Ann McRae!

      I was having a very difficult time with the LR plugin and after contacting Customer Service (who were helpful, but not quite enough to solve my problem) several times I tried another avenue. I went to the ClickinMoms forum and found Ann McRae. I asked for help and she walked me through the process and "held my hand" to make sure I was successful. She is a wonderful resource for your company and she deserves recognition and high praise for her customer service. Thank you Ann!

          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.

        • Add Support for Metatag Pinterest Verification to the New SmugMug UI.

          It is not currently possible to have Pinterest verify a Smugmug site that uses the new UI. This verification is important because Pinterest demotes unverified sites. Accommodating Pinterest's upload file verification method could be challenging, but the metatag verification method is not any different than the method SmugMug already uses for Google Webmaster Tools. Please add another option to Account Settings where users can paste the required Pinterest verification meta tag so that it will be added to the head portion of their site's html. Thanks in advance.

          • let customers choose to display photo sizes in either inches or cm

            Recently SmugMug added the option for customers to select a currency in which they want to see prices, which is great.
            A similar feature could be the sizes of the photos. At the moment, sizes are displayed in inches, but since it doesn't say "sizes are displayed in inches" anywhere, this might confuse some customers.
            It would be great to either specifically display on the pricelist that available sizes are inches or even better :-) provide a similar window as for the prices in which customers can choose to display options in inches or cm.

              • Add the CHF in your price list

                At the moment we only have this currencies :
                US Dollar, Canadian Dollar, Australian Dollar, Euro and British Sterling

                My clients are Swiss and want to pay in CHF
                This is a must have for Swiss customers.

                • In Lightroom's library, show me which photos are on Smugmug.

                  My Smugmug gallery hierarchy does not match my folder structure. As I'm browsing through or working in Lightroom's library, I would like to see a visual cue that a photo has been uploaded or sync'd to SM.

                  Does devbobo's Lightroom plugin know about the relationship between files in the library and my SM site? If so could you place a discreet icon on the image in LR's grid and survey view to let me know? I often find myself coming across a photo and thinking - that should be on SM, but is it?

                  • don't limit multi currencies to just 5 - why can't you accept them all - I'm based in Japan and would like to see Japenese Yen added ; )

                    Why not just add all currencies - if you can do 5 then it shouldn't be too difficult to add the rest surely?

                    Pretty Please ....

                    • Show keywords in lightbox

                      Please add keywords of photos to the Lightbox.

                      I use Collage Landscape for most of my galleries. This gallery style does not show the keywords of an image like the Smugmug style or Journal style does.

                      Collage gallery styles are much more dependent on the Lightbox for viewing images, so please add the keywords somewhere inside that Lightbox, perhaps below the caption.

                      • Option to remove "other SmugMug photos" from search results page for pros

                        In the searches section... as a PRO Account, it bothers me that 'OTHER SMUG MUG PHOTOS' is an option on my search results page. This is NOT Flickr or Photobucket or some photo sharing site, is it?? There should be ZERO reason the customers I bring to my site should be prompted away to another photographers site. If nothing is found, in MY photos, that end-user should be asked if they want to contact me or send me a question - to see if I just haven't uploaded those shots, or have them archived, or will be taking them in…

                            It would be cool to have the iPad app on the iPhone too. It's been quite a few times where i've needed to show some photos and had to browse for them in the webbrowser.
                            You could for example just make the iPad app universal.

                              • Add Option To Allow A CSS Block To Flow Down To Children Folders/Pages/Galleries

                                Please allow us the option to allow CSS to apply to anything with a specific folder. It would be great if we could add some CSS that would allow any Folder, Gallery, or Page within it, to also have the same CSS as that parent folder.

                                An example could be a banner image within folder "Birds" that shows a bird photo for all the galleries within it. Using CSS the banner could change to "Insects" if, instead, browsing galleries within the Insects Folder.

                                  This was completed and announced on dgrin on Nov 4, 2014.

                                  You’ll notice in the tag that we have now added a “sm-page-page-parentnode-{NODE_ID}”

                                  You can get the parent node ID’s by going to the higher level folder and looking at it’s nodeID (the red part).

                                  You can use these parentnodes to let all sub-pages (folders, galleries, or pages) take the same CSS. For example, you could replace a specific image with a new one for anything in a “Nature” folder.

                                  Some Caveats::
                                  - For privacy concerns, any folder set to “Unlisted” will not be displayed in the parent-node hierarchy.

                                  The new SmugMug appears to have taken away the ability to have a slideshow display photos in random order. Could you please bring that feature back? It was handy for showing off photos of a portfolio.

                                    Apologies for the delay in updating this. You are able to create slideshows and have the images randomized.

                                    1. Go to Customize Site
                                    2. Add a “Slideshow” content block to a desired place on your site.
                                    3. Go to the “Playback” tab in the content block’s settings.
                                    4. Toggle on “Randomize Images”

                                    Note: you can also enable a slideshow as the background of a page, and this can also be randomized. Go to the Customizer, then “Background” tab, then select type as “Slideshow.”

                                  • More customization for Embedded slideshows!

                                    I'm a designer creating websites for clients as well as my own portfolio. We don't want our sites on smugmug as the images are only part of it, so i like the embedded flash slideshow. HOWEVER, why so few options to customize this?

                                    1) Captions
                                    I NEED to be able to allow captions style to look differently than what is provided. Font, color, size, bg, position of MY choice, not that big chunky type/box that covers the photo if the caption is more than 10 words. PLEASE!

                                    2) THUMBS SCROLL BAR
                                    Can i have the option to put it above…

                                    • create some slideshow transitions

                                      As much as I like the simple fade in fade out slideshow transition offered now, I would love to see more variety such as drop in or slide left, or page flip for the homepage slideshow.

                                        I am new to using wordpress and was trying to embed a slideshow in my blog post. I finally discovered I needed to edit the code to [gigya src=" blah blah blah"] and removed everything before the <embed....

                                        Thanx!

                                        • fullscreen slideshow that is mobile compatible

                                          You are halfway there. The slideshow gallery is mobile compatible, at least on an ipad. But I would like to see the fullscreen slideshow be mobile compatible as well.
