  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!

          • 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.

            • Improve hiding capabilities of new SmugMug

              New SmugMug is awesome. However, with it some of the hiding capabilities of the old have been removed, specifically the ability to hide photos with the "H" keyboard shortcut. I'd suggest you add this feature again. Also, with the new organizer, having the ability to batch-hide photos would be great!

                While you can’t use the keyboard shortcut ‘H’ to hide images in new SmugMug, you can do batch-hiding of images through the Organizer. To do so, go to your organizer and open your gallery. Click to select the images you want to hide then click the wrench icon followed by Hide. That will hide all of the selected images!

              • 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.

                • A search box to dynamically filter galleries

                  How cool would it be if my clients and the hundreds of their friends and family (wedding) could start typing in a 'search' box on my main SmugMug page and all of those galleries below fly into action to reveal the exact gallery(ies) that matches their search string? They could effectively bypass the clicking through my organized hierarchy to find the desired gallery. Plus, I often do multiple jobs for one client that fall under different categories. This search would break the jobs out of their categories and show them together.

                    • Remove text from search box

                      Please remove the text "search for photos" from your search box originating in the Search Content Block. I would like to leave that box blank or customize it for a specific page. I want a search option on my pricing page, and "search for photos" sends the wrong message. Thanks!

                        You can change the text in the search box by editing its settings in the customizer. Just click the wrench in the top left corner of the block and scroll down to see the ‘Placeholder Text’ option. There you can enter what you want in the search form!

                          • add custom search box option in easy customizer

                            The smugmug header comes with a search box. This disappear when we use the custom header.

                            It would be very useful to be able to enable the custom search box from the navbar section of the easy customizer.

                            The custom box should appear at the right of the nav bar, easy thing for you but very useful for us.

                                When adding to cart and an image needs to be cropped a thumbnail with a crop border appears to the left of the size selection list. I looked at that screen over and over and never saw that tiny, faded text under the size description on the right that indicates 'needs cropping in checkout'. Kept looking at the left box to figure out how to crop there using the crop border. From a usability stance there
                                should be a clear message right where the customer is looking, by the cropped thumb. Not very intuitive at all. In other systems I've…

                                • Slideshow keyboard shortcuts

                                  We should be able to use forward and back arrow keys on the keyboard during the slideshow (much like you can on most web-based photo slideshows). Having to click forward/backward with the mouse slows the experience, makes it cumbersome, and is visually distracting, since it requires bringing up the thumbnails and arrow graphics.

                                    In new SmugMug, when accessing the full screen slideshow from a gallery or from the Lightbox, you can use the arrow keys to advance to the next image or go back to the previous image.

                                  • Extend smu.gs as an alternative to TwitPic, et. al. for Twitter

                                    Now that TwitPic is actively seeking to resell user's photos, there is a desperate need for a rights-managed, trusted host for Twitter photos. While there are ways to do this with SmugShot, it is cumbersome - especially on a mobile device.

                                    With the smu.gs URL shortener and existing gallery capabilities (watermarking, size restrictions, etc.), SmugMug could create a feature that customers could use as a seamless replacement for TwitPic, yFrog, etc. Given SmugMug's userbase it should be an easy sell to convince the major Twitter app developers to include the smu.gs service as an image host option - especially if…

                                        In new SmugMug, you can start a gallery slideshow from any image by clicking it to open it in Lightbox followed by clicking the slideshow play button.

                                        • custom 404 Page

                                          I just noticed that if someone puts in an incorrect URL, the error page is one of two generic SmugMug 404 pages (effectively taking people away from our site), rather than a 404 page within our (mysite).SmugMug page. If someone ends up on this external page, they have an option to search, but that, too, is a Smug search, rather than a (mysite) Gallery search.

                                          How do we customize a 404 page that keeps people within our site?
                                          If we cannot, can we set it so that any incorrectly entered url redirects to the homepage at http://(mysite).smugmug.com?

                                          Note that: …

                                            In new SmugMug if you enter any unknown path onto the end of your SmugMug URL you’ll be taken to a ‘Page Not Found’ page. Once there you can, if you are logged in, customize the page like any other on your site!
