  1. enable bulk gallery downloading.

    This is already listed as completed, but I thought I'd slap it back on the table because to download an entire gallery requires you to step outside of Smugmug, download external software & run a non-branded app, & that just isn't good enough.

    I make wedding photos books using guests' photos, so as a Pro user have external contributors - who are neither photographers nor computer folk & who are, essentially, doing this as a favour - adding photos to galleries using the Assistant password. This part works. Then when I have looked at all contributions, & selected & enhanced…

    • Add the ability to add default descriptions/captions to gallery uploads

      When I upload the pics from a client shoot, there's no default descriptions/captions added. So when they say "Oh, I like the third one down the best", I have to go look in the gallery, and figure out which one they're talking about.

      Ideally, there'd be an option to just add an incremental number to the caption. Even better still would be the uploaded filename. "I like DSC_1047 best" means I can go grab that photo by name.

      • Facebook integration improvements needed

        After using (or trying to use) the Smugmug Facebook integration, I am finding it in serious need of a bunch of enhancements.

        1) The "Be Social" interface doesn't allow me to use a shortcut link (I use bit.ly) that lets me track click-throughs. It only puts in the very long Smugmug link.

        2) The "Be Social" interface doesn't have a way to link to a gallery, only to the lightbox view of a single photo. I nearly always want to pick a representative thumb and then link to a gallery, not to a single photo. The way it ends up…

        • Change default settings to: 1) right protect photos 2) allow water markings on Med Prints

          1) Why wouldn't Smugmug have right protecting photos turned ON as a default setting. If I want to give people a free copy, I can change my settings to allow that. 2) Allow me to put water marks on Medium sized prints. I realize a person can't make a print by screen copying a photo at medium, but in this day and age, people can use them to look at those photos on their phones, tablets or computers. If someone wants to screen capture my photos ... regardless of size, I would like people who see those photos with my…

          • Ability to have no watermark on gallery covers

            It can just be a simple option right under where you choose the cover image for a gallery. That way it makes the site look beautiful & clean on entry but protects the images once clicking in!

              We currently offer you the option to select the minimize size for which watermarks will be displayed. If set to something like Medium, for example, watermarks will not be set on anything smaller, like the thumbnails and gallery cover images.

            • Be able to go backwards & navigate easily from a Gallery!

              It makes no sense that when you go into a gallery you can not go backwards to where that gallery is stored, the home page, etc unless you press your browsers back button having to navigate completely back through all of the pages in that gallery. Please add some simple buttons for this task.

              • Add a full screen button (toggle) for a single photo.

                Add a full screen button that can be used in galleries to instantly show a single photo full screen and then allow pressing the Esc key to return. This functionality exists for a slideshow but not individual photos. You can change the size of photos displayed in the lightbox but it would be useful to have a button (like the two arrow button) with slideshows that could be used to instantly toggle to full screen and back.

                • 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.

                  • Reinstate ability to crop thumbnails

                    Until today, I had been able to crop the thumbnail. Now when I click the Wrench it offers a Crop option, which only crops the entire image, not just the thumbnail. Many of my images are 3:2 ratio but I like the square thumbnail. With an off-center subject in the 3:2 image, it shows poorly in a square thumbnail unless I can crop it. Please allow me to individually crop each thumbnail the way I used to.

                    • Please bring back the thumbnail crop functionality

                      I am not sure why the thumbnail crop is completely removed. It is difficult to display images in a professional manner unless you shoot in square like for instagram. We need a way to fix when the thumbnail shows a person with their head cut off etc.

                      • PLEASE allow batch caption-editing under organize. Having to Save each caption separately is multiplying my work!!!!

                        Now that you've done another fix, I can no longer add captions to a group of photos and upload with ONE SAVE. Instead, I have to highlight, caption and save each photo separately. You've increased my work by miles!

                        • Include the option to remove watermarks on thumbnails and feature galleries

                          Watermarking of photos is essential, but not on thumbnails. With the nice new large thumbnail previews we get with new smugmug, the watermark tends to get in the way a bit.

                          I'd like an option to hide or remove the watermark on thumbnails and feature gallery thumbs.

                            We added the ability on the new platform to choose the smallest display size a watermark will apply to. So, for example, you could make it so your watermarks only appear on Medium (600 × 450) sizes and above.

                                Apologies for not updating this feature request sooner. The ability to delete quick settings was added a few months back.

                                To remove an existing quick setting, follow these steps:

                                1. Go to a gallery
                                2. Click ‘Customize’ in the header and select ‘Gallery Settings’
                                3. Go to the “Quick Settings” tab
                                4. In the “Quick Settings” drop down, select a quick setting that you have created (i.e. not the “SmugMug Default.”
                                5. Two icons will appear – a “trash” icon and a “checkmark” icon. The former deletes the quick setting from your account, and the latter applies the chosen quick setting to your gallery.

                                  See the update at the end.

                                  To enable titles and captions or edit the various aspects of the gallery slideshow style, including speed, follow these steps:

                                  1. Go to a gallery

                                  Edit: We are going to make it so the slideshow launched from the button inherits the settings you change in the above manner. That change may take a while to work its way through our testing.

                                  Its unimaginable that we have a system that does not allow buyers to buy on mobile devices.
                                  We are discriminating against buyer based on device
                                  there are approx 900,000,000 android users
                                  there are approx 500,000,000 apple iphone devices out there and we cannot sell to them
                                  Why? the add to cart function works on an Ipad yet not on an iphone
                                  Do Smug Mug actually want Pro's to get sales?
                                  I can see from my web analytics that a big chunk of my visits are on mobile devices yet i cannot sell to them?
                                  Come on Smug Mug get with…

                                        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!

                                        • Feature Image option to remove watermark

                                          I love the new feature to allow us to use our favorite thumbnail image even on password protected galleries. I would love for the option to be able to use pictures in the gallery without it having a watermark. Currently if you choose a feature image from a gallery that you have watermarked, the feature image as well will have that same watermark. It would be great to have the feature to include or exclude watermarks on feature images from a gallery. The only way to get around it now is take my favorites and upload them to an unlisted…

                                            We’ve implemented a feature that allows you to set the “Smallest Size” for a watermark. Anything smaller than this set size will not receiving the watermark. Setting it to something like medium, or large, can make the watermark not display on the thumbnail.
