  1. make it so that photos views from myself are NOT counted in my statistics.

    I suggest that photos views from myself are NOT counted in my statistics. Today I set up my account and by tonight I had 26 views, but NO referrers, which would suggest that my views were all my own. This will skew my numbers and is not helpful to me at all.

    • Collect Photos - Need to Select Multiple Photos to Collect

      The old version allowed the user to select multiple photos to collect in another folder. Now, the user is only able to collect one photo at a time. Removing features when trying to improve the UI adversely affects the user experience. Give us our functionality back!

        Sorry for the late update, but we did solve this in Organizer on the new SmugMug. You can select one or more photos in a gallery, drag them to a gallery on the tree on the left, and choose ‘Collect’. It’s the same process for moving multiple photos.

        Thanks for the feedback!

      • Clearly indentify 'hidden' photos and make it easier to work with them.

        The 'Hide Photo' option is a great feature and currently it's a very quick and easy task to go through a whole gallery culling images from public view by using the 'H' key shortcut and the arrow keys. Unfortunately, once you have hidden some photos, there is no way to review a gallery and quickly identify which photos you have hidden from view. You must manually step through the photos one by one again, paying close attention to the little 'Hide Photo' check box that appears below the image, and only in the SmugMug view. In large galleries, or galleries…

            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!

              • Client Proofing Options

                I would like to see a way for my clients to go through a gallery and narrow down there choices, with a "like" or "star" selection, and then be able to sort by that selection.

                Also a option to compare images side by side.

                At least a way for your clients to tag a photo so you know which ones to prepare for printing.

                If there is an easier way for your clients to let you know there picks other than telling you the file name, then would someone enlighten me, because I can't find anything in the help files.

                • Easy way to select which "multiple galleries" to apply changes to

                  I recently changed my watermark and wanted to apply it to all except two galleries(three if I include the "Watermarks" gallery). I had to open the dropdown and select each and every gallery. As I did so, a list was populated at the top of the page. I propose the following alternatives when I click on "Multiple Galleries":

                  1) Display all of my gallery names with a checkbox next to each, with linked "Select All" and "Select None" functionality(preferred).

                  2) When I select the checkbox for "All of my galleries", fully populate the list at the top of the page(that…

                  • Complete photo ranking/picking for Pro user/client: allow rank/sort/filter to focus on best images

                    As a pro user, many times I need to be able to have the client make "picks" (like in Lightroom) and then to rank them with the star system - again, a 5 point or "star" rating would be best. The key added feature being allowing me to rank/sort/filter the resulting portfolio and focus only on the photos that the client considers the best. (Potentially suppressing/deleting the rest.)

                    What Smugmug has is a beginning with the thumbs and comment ranks, but neither the client nor I can sort or filter the portfolio based on the result. Also, I find that…

                    • Sync favorites back to Lightroom

                      I'd like to be able to sync my client's "favorites" back to my Lightroom Library. Ideally, I could open Lightroom, ask it to go retrieve the "favorites" gallery for a specific event, and Lightroom would search and find those file names in the Library and put them in a separate Collection. That way, my clients can select their faves from the proofs, and I can easily get to work on them in Lightroom.

                      • SmugMug to display both Title and Caption Metadata

                        Lightroom uses both Title and Caption Metadata but SmugMug only displays the Caption. Lightroom users would really appreciate an upgrade to SmugMug so that it shows both Title and Caption.

                          • Offer poster printing

                            If OfficeMax can do it, and at least one pro lab with which I have worked can do it, why not SmugMug, right? 16x20, 18x24, 24x36. (That unnamed lab is only doing 16x20, but if you're going to do it... DO IT!) It would be a great product for those doing photography for kid's sports, and a fantastic product for digital artists.

                            The real advantage for SM to do this? Since we get to set our own prices in SM, it would be WAY better than some of the other options that either overcharge or pay a measly, preset commission...

                            • Allow users to copy or move multiple images to another gallery at once

                              I've seen similar requests as well as responses that claim that this functionality exists through the "collect photos" feature. Not only is the feature absent from the new smugmug, but it's cumbersome to use. It should be simple to select the desired photos, then have them appear in ANY chosen gallery while retaining the originals in their original gallery.

                              If smugmug would prefer to make virtual copies instead of actually duplicating the images (to save on storage perhaps) it doesn't matter to me, but the user & audience experiences can and should be smoother. You're on the right track with…

                                  The future of our business depends on our customers being able to order from many options such as holiday greeting cards, photo albums and even photos on foam/hard board. When will become a possibility?? I know that we (as owners) can order photo cards and albums but our customers cannot. We do a lot of high volume portrait parties and our customers want these options! Help and thank you!!!

                                  • Add Google's +1 button to photo galleries similar to the twitter and facebook sharing buttons.

                                    Now that google's
                                    +1 is live (a facebook "like"
                                    competitor), it would be cool to have the option to have it available on our photos much like the facebook and twitter sharing buttons.

                                      • Allow us to customize sites with full-featured templates

                                        I would really like to see the option to have full customization of my SmugMug site by using a fully-fledged template system. I realize that many users would not necessarily want to take advantage of such advanced customization, but I also really believe that there are others like me who are more experienced/proficient in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and who feel severely limited by the existing option only to inject our own markup into ‘custom header’ and ‘custom footer’ sections (as well as into the <strong>head</strong> section).

                                        I have spent a fair bit of time reading about how to customize…

                                        • favicon

                                          Hello,

                                          You know, I LOVE SmugMug but not necessarily the smiley-faced "Smuggy" favicon that shows up on browsers next to my URL. Sorry.

                                          've read many of the favicon customization treads on dgrin and am dismayed at the "compromises" us pro Smuggers have to endure when it comes to displaying a custom favicon, such as working on FF and not IE (though not my faviorite, IE is far the most widely used browser in the world) and that the Smugmug favicon loads first and all.

                                          So, Smugmug, what's the current status on the custom favicon debate that brews now and…
