  1. 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.

    • Add iPhone covers to the merchandise that can be purchased.

      Have you guys thought about putting iPhone covers in the merchandise section? I have received some requests for those and have been going to an outside vendor, but it would be nice to do it from this site with the pics already there.

      • Search captions as well as keywords

        A great feature of SmugMug is that I can use search to find the types of images I'm looking for. But it only searches keywords!

        If the search function also searched captions, it would save users the frustration of duplicating entry of keywords - of which many will already appear in the caption.

        Please consider this service!

          Good news! We do look at captions when searching from a search content block or the SmugMug header. Matches based on title or keyword will usually show up higher in the search results, so you might have to scroll through some of the results, but we do look at and include results based on captions.

          • Add video length information

            When viewing a video, it seems there is no information about how long the video is, how much viewing time has elapsed or remains or ability to pinpoint specific part or shot in the video using time. Could that be added please?

            • enable a direct link to "bio" when using the easy customizer

              The easy customizer is fabulous except for adding an "About Me" section. I assumed I could simply link to my existing, standard "bio" but that's not feasible (except through a bunch of code, which I don't know how to handle). That means creating a separate gallery to handle the "About Me".
              However, that means maintaining two separate areas (Bio and About Me) as links to galleries automatically pull in info from the Bio section... Twice the work or else you appear differently from within your own site and when you provide links to content in your site...

              • make finding "hidden" photos way more efficient, and help prevent mistaken "hides"

                please develop a quick way to peruse an entire gallery to see which photos i've hidden.

                as of now the only way to find what i've hidden is to click thru every photo in the gallery until i find that check in the "hide" box. which, in my case, has almost always happened inadvertently.

                could the designation of "hidden" (in red, to stand out) perhaps be added to the display in one of the arrange options?

                ALSO: to help me (and i'll bet others) stop making the mistake of unwittingly checking the "hide" box and failing to notice i've done…

                      Hi Jnaman,

                      You can create a QR code from any link – for example using this generator:
                      http://qrcode.kaywa.com/

                      Just paste a link to your album and that is it.

                      I hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any more questions.

                      Take care,

                      Tom

                    • "Select a Cover Photo for your Profile"

                      It would be a good idea to be able to "Select a Cover Photo for your Profile" when indicated. There is no button to click, no way to drag or drop an image, nothing comes up when left-clicking on the mouse, no follow-up instruction to be able to select a cover photo for your profile. Since it's not obvious how to do this, you might consider adding some instructions below the term "Select a Cover Photo for your Profile". I am still looking around for a blog, or a FAQ page, or a forum to figure this out.

                        Previously you could click on “your Profile” and it would take you to the help page on how to set the profile (it’s in the User Menu → Edit Profile), but we just pushed out a fix so that clicking on “Your Profile” will now actually open the “Edit Profile” where you can set your cover photo. The photo still needs to have been previously uploaded, but setting it should be much easier!

                        • You get less pictures now when searching individual pics than albums, even though both are limited to 1000 or less when using searce feature

                          Return search feature to original configuration. Right now, contrary to another poster, if you search for "water", you get 1000 images and 1000 galleries. This used to be thousands of galleries, and possibly millions of images. I guess all good things end.

                                • Allow for more than five keywords in the "combine with" function

                                  Currently only five additional keywords are displayed to "combine with" the currently selected keyword. The keyword tool would be much more useful if all the keywords were available in the "combine with" selection. This may not be as much of an issue with a fairly small number of photos, but with over 15,000 photos to sort through and 50+ keywords from which to choose, having only five available is a significant limitation.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Expand definition of DVD resolution to 1024x576 or allow Power users to upload Mid-def movies

                                      When uploading a Video with DVD-resolution 720x576 (common in Europe at least) it will be down-scaled to 640x480 by Smug mug. It would be great if the definition of DVD-resolution is expanded to 720x576 or even greater 1024x576. The alternative now, is to upgrade to Professional account and convert the movies to 720p or 540p before uploading. Since the Pro account is quite a bit more expensive it may not be an option for all to upgrade just to gain a few pixels on the video resolution.
                                      An alternative would also be allowing Power users to upload Mid-def movies.
                                      Thanks…

                                      • 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.

                                        • Play video without opening a popup lightbox window

                                          Currently when you click on a video it opens a lightbox popup window to play. I would like the video to play in the main window without leaving the gallery.
