    • Make an iPhone app like the iPad app

      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.

      • Build a photo uploader into your iPad app

        On my ipad I have lots of photo tools and I want to post directly to my smugmug gallery but there is no way to do it. Please build a photo browser / uploader into the smugmug app so I can edit photos on my iPad and upload them to my smugmug gallery

            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.

          • 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 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.
                - For privacy concerns, Folders set as “Hide Owner” will not display in the parent-node hierarchy.
                - Folders set to “Private (only me)” will show up since only the owner can navigate to the given page.
                - If you are attempting to target a folder AND all of its contents,…

              • Bring back random playback for slideshow

                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.

                      • 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.

                          Please please please add this feature soon. I love your service but I cannot believe this is not already there! We need arrow keys on the *full screen* slideshow to work!! It's really really annoying to have to click through it.

                            The fullscreen slideshow is able to be controlled using the arrow keys. At this time, only the Fullscreen slideshow has this capability. Embedded or Slideshow content blocks still need to be controlled using the navigation buttons.

                          • make the Nexus 7 able to display Slideshows in HTML5 rather than giving a Flash error.

                            When I try to view slideshows on my Google Nexus 7 I get the flash error. SmugMug does not appear to be able to identify the Nexus 7 and know to run the slideshow in HTML5 rather than in Flash, as it does with iOS devices.

                                Casting to a TV is supported as follows:
                                - Amazon KindleTV / KindleTV Stick: The SmugMug app can be downloaded to your device.
                                - iOS: Not natively through the SmugMug iOS app. Chromecast apps with export extensions like “PhotoCast” can be used in conjuncture with the SmugMug app to “Export to Cast” for display on your Chromecast device.
                                - Android: Chromecast support is built into the Android SmugMug App (starting w/version 3.1.12).

                              • Possibility to download all the gallery in one clic

                                • Contact Form Improvement

                                  I just signed up for a pro account. If people ordering prints have issues I want them to contact me so I set up a contact form. There are what I would consider two major issues with this form. 1. There is not reCAPTCHA or challenge question on the form so it will be only a matter of time when the bots will start hitting up this form with tons of SPAM. 2. After sending an email, me email address is revealed in a box for about five seconds stating any replies will be send to my email. My email…

                                    We take your email security seriously. Your email address is never displayed for a spam bot to steal, despite it temporarily showing up in front of you. Additionally, the manner in which we generate the contact form allows us to prevent spam from being sent through in. In fact, in the 7 years I’ve been a SmugMug customer I’ve never received a spam message through it.

                                  • Have an option to maintain 'user order' when uploading from Lightroom

                                    I spend ages in Lightroom making sure the photos are in the right order that I want them viewed in. I would like this Lightroom 'user order' to be preserved when publishing (and republishing) to SmugMug. I know you can 'arrange' in SmugMug but my photos are already arranged in LR and on large galleries its a pain to do it again.

                                    • need a field for photo titles (not just captions)

                                      Flickr, Picasa, Redbubble, and pretty much every other photo site has a field for entering photo titles in addition to captions. Why not SmugMug?

                                      It's a small thing, but for someone who has been using the Title field for years in Lightroom, it's absence means that I would have to recaption hundreds of photos if I decided to migrate from Flickr to SmugMug. It also means that within Lightroom, if I wanted to maintain accounts on both Flickr and SmugMug, I would have to create separate versions of my photos for each -- one version with captions, and one version…

                                      • Allow folders to display more than 50 galleries.

                                        Folders can have as many galleries in them as I please, but they can only display 50, ever, no matter what. I want to be able to have 300 galleries in a folder without having to divide them up into 10 subfolders. Even if the gallery has to be paginated, with only 5 or 10 galleries on screen at any given time, that would work, but the display limit means that my folders are effectively limited to 50 galleries each. And that stinks!

                                          Currently we can display ~500 galleries in 1 folder, as seen here with a sample of 55 galleries (http://aaronmeyers.smugmug.com/Test/Large-Folder-Test).

                                          Please make sure you have pagination set to ON. Options for pagination are either “scroll” (automatically loads new galleries as the user scrolls) or “click”, where the user clicks “Load more” to see more.

                                          If you have any more questions find us over on www.dgrin.com and look at the Support forums!
