  1. 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!!!

    • 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!

        • ALL thumbnails should be optioned for watermark or not.

          ALL thumbnails should be optioned for watermark or not. Not JUST "Smugmug" gallery themed thumbs. "Galleries" thumbnails should not be showing watermarks either. This shouldn't have to be a suggestion. WHY DO YOU DO THIS?

            You can change your watermark settings to only display the watermark on images sized Medium and above. This will prevent the watermark from appearing on Small sized images that may be used in gallery thumbnails. If you are displaying size Medium images, then you can change the maximum display size for the watermark to Large.

            If you have specific questions about this on your site, go ahead and shoot me an email at feedback@smugmug.com and I’ll happily take a look :)

          • Make it easier to assign multiple watermarks to photos within one gallery.

            Similar to how SmugMug allows users to add captions/keywords to all the photos in a gallery from one page, allow us to also attach the watermark from that page under Tools --> Many Photos --> Caption/Keywords. I have 4 different watermarks that I use depending on which corner of the photo I want them to appear & would like to have a faster way to choose which watermark I will assign to each photo with less clicking around on the site.

              You can add watermarks to photos already in your gallery by clicking ORGANIZE at the top of your homepage > open the gallery of images > select the images you want to add watermarks to > click the little wrench icon in the upper left > select Watermarks. From there you will be able to apply one of your own watermarks or the SmugMug default watermark to all the photos at once or just one photo at a time. You can even use the keyboard shortcut Command + Option + N to save the watermark and automatically move to the next photo. This is also indicated within the watermarking feature in case you forget.

              Here is a link to our help page with more info on how to apply watermarks: http://help.smugmug.com/customer/portal/articles/93343-how-do-i-watermark-photos-?b_id=1644

            • Applying a watermark is easy BUT, try removing it ...

              You provide a simple On / Off option to apply watermarks, unfortunately the OFF option does absolutely nothing after watermarks have been applied.

              Unless you search the forums or write to Smugmug for help, you will never be able to remove watermarks, once applied.

              The OFF option should simply do what it says on the can ... TURN THEM OFF!

                Turning off watermarking in your gallery settings will only apply that setting to new photos that you upload to that gallery. To remove watermarks from photos already in your gallery click ORGANIZE at the top of your homepage > open the gallery of images > select the images you want to remove watermarks from > click the little wrench icon in the upper left > select Watermarks. From there you will be able to remove your watermarks.

              • drag and drop upload duplicate options PRIOR to dropping

                When uploading, the options for duplicates (allow, replace etc) do not appear until we drag and drop into the window or make our file selection.

                Please provide that menu upon launching the upload page.

                2. also, when upload is complete, please still list the total images # of total uploaded so that we can confirm before hitting done. currently, once completed, the screen clears.

                  The uploader currently shows the number of images uploaded and gives you the option to view the log to confirm that the upload was complete before clicking “done”.

                  When uploading images, changing the options for duplicates will take action as soon as the option is changed, without requiring the user to do anything additional. Whether or not the options for duplicates is displayed first or when the uploader shouldn’t effect the actual workflow for uploading, however, it would present User Interface challenges if displayed first.

                    Quick Settings can be deleted after they are selected in Gallery Settings. Thanks for the feedback.

                    We have some ideas for dramatically improving the feature to make it easier to create, manage, and apply them. Stay tuned!

                  • let us customise the "contact form"

                    Now that we're stuck with using the Smugmug contact form we need to be able to customise it to fit our requirements. One size definitely doesn't fit all, and "The Question" is possibly the most unhelpful prompt in the history of text form prompts.

                    Or just give us the option to add Wufoo forms back.

                        This request is complete! SmugShot is a deprecated app that we no longer offer or support. Our current app, SmugMug, fully supports uploading of photos from your device. You are able to upload multiple photos at once.

                        If I click on a picture from the home page, the URL doesn't change. When I hit the back button, I get an empty page, not the homepage. I know there is a different way, that's not the point. It's that you are breaking a fundamental browser feature and user expectation. In addition, one has to use some other trick to find a shareable link, whereas it should always be the current URL. Thanks

                          Thanks for the feedback Antonio! We do have the option to make the images on your homepage open in the gallery. Right now you have them opening in the Lightbox on the homepage. If you change the multi-photos content block’s Action on Click to “Open in Gallery” it will work the way you want it to. If you’d like further info, you can shoot us an email at feedback@smugmug.com.

                              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.

                              Today, when a new gallery is created in the SmugMug Lightroom publishing service it always creates a new gallery on SmugMug. It can be very useful to be able to attach manually created galleries in LR, in particular smart galleries, to existing galleries in SM.
                              The sync hierarchies option gives some capability but it doesn't compare to having full manual control over the mapping of publisher galleries to site galleries.

                              • Enable captions whenever a viewer elects to view photos in slideshow mode, irregardless of which gallery style has been selected for display

                                Right now, the only way to see captions in slideshow view is to select the Slideshow Gallery style. I prefer to set my gallery style in collage format, but some of my viewers like to view the photos as a slideshow. No captions are visible if they choose to view as a slideshow - they have to "arrow" through the entire gallery one at a time, and even then the captions are scrolling off the bottom of the screen unless you arrow over them.

                                • add the option to toggle captions on or off in Slideshow

                                  In the old Smugmug the captions were displayed in slideshow mode. In the new Smugmug, the captions are not displayed.
                                  I would like to have the option to choose between the two.

                                  • Make recent photos view more like an album

                                    The new Recent Photos feature is great, but it only lets you show a fixed number of recent photos on the home page. It would be awesome if we could add an option to let viewers click a link to see more photos, letting them walk backwards in time through our photos.

                                    • Simpler CSS customization of galleries

                                      Allow site owners to add one or more CSS classes to any given gallery (probably in gallery settings).

                                      This then makes CSS customization of any given set of galleries (like your About, Services, Contact and Pricing pages) to be massively simpler. Instead of creating the same block of CSS with arcane gallery numbers in it and copying it over and over in your CSS (each copy with different gallery numbers), you only have to have one simple set of CSS with a nice English sounding class name.

                                      The site owner can then just assign that class name to any gallery…

                                      • Continuously Loop Carousel Content Block

                                        I just noticed the Carousel feature was it just added? Anyways it would be great if the carousel had the option of being continuous (looping) instead of just stopping at the last picture.

                                        • give carousel a "randomize images" option.

                                          Right now the carousel only displays images in a fixed order. I'd rather they appear in a random order, like a slideshow is capable of.
