    • Create Sync for Aperture 3

      Apple's Aperture 3 permits the user to create galleries on Facebook, Flikr, and MobileMe that are automatically synced with the corresponding album in Aperture.

      Update captions, keywords, drag images in (or out) of the album and the changes are automatically updated online (updating metadata, adding or deleting photos as necessary).

      It would be great to have this feature for SmugMug galleries.

        This was completed in October 2013. Apple has recently announced that it will be discountuing Aperture and replacing it with their “Photos” app.

        P.S. SmugMug has long been a part of Adobe Lightroom, and we’ve gotten a lot of requests from customers to be included in Photos, too. If you agree and want to see SmugMug in iPhoto, please leave feedback at Apple and tell them why! We’d love to see SmugMuggers everywhere uploading and managing their photos from everywhere that counts.

      • Partner with a European/UK lab to provide timely and cost effective print services in Europe.

        Whenever I have been selling prints, customers have pulled away from the option of using the SmugMug system, due to the inconvenience (perceived) and extra cost (significant) of the order being fulfilled on the other side of the Atlantic. I always end up having to use another service to provide prints, which adds unnecessary work I'd rather not be having to do, having paid for the Pro subscription in the first place.

        One way around this could be for SmugMug to partner with a European lab, so prints were charged and shipped from within Europe, reducing the shipping costs, shipping…

        • Allow mobile customization

          Allow the customization, just to choose which categories/galleires show up in the mobile site, what links visitors can click on, etc. For anyone with serious customization on their regular site, the mobile site looks rather confusing at times.

          Also adding the ability to change the color scheme to match the regular site, and maybe a small header would be ideal so that visitor recognize the site as the photographers and not as SmugMug's. Brand image is important to Pro's no matter where it is conveyed.

          • Automatically e-mail the invoice or receipt after annual dues have been charged. Or make it available to see online.

            I need copies of receipts for all my expenses and having to e-mail you guys to get a receipt for the annual fee for my gallery seems very unnecessary. Would really like to get a copy e-mailed to me immediately after the charge or at least make it available to view and print online.

            • Allow Users to Download Receipts

              I would like the ability to download a receipt when I am automatically billed for my annual subscription. Currently, I have to request a receipt via email each year.

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                    • mass editing of keywords - keyword picking list - renaming/combining keywords

                      It would be nice to be able to edit keywords in mass, without going to each photo to remove/edit them.

                      Maybe a feature like what is available in Lightroom would be nice. Be able to just rename/combine a keyword(s). Or event mass delete a keyword from all the images.

                      For example, if a bunch of photos has the keyword "weding" (yes misspelled). It would be nice to rename that keyword to "wedding" and have it merge with other photos having the same "wedding" keyword.

                      Or for example, if a bunch of photos has the keyword "7021" and you want to…

                        Hi there,

                        Thanks for contacting SmugMug.

                        You can edit keywords and description on more than one image at a time.

                        Please open one of your galleries – > click TOOLS – > in the MANY PHOTOS section please click CAPTION/KEYWORD.

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

                        Take care,

                        Tom

                          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
                          2. Click ‘Customize’ in the header and select ‘Customize Site’
                          3. Click on the Gallery content block to edit any of the gallery styles, including the Slideshow style.

                          Note: You need to have a Power account or above.

                          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.

                          Thanks for the feedback!

                        • Want ability to copy photos to actual Facebook albums, so we can tag friends, etc.

                          I would like not only to be able to share our Smug Photos in our Facebook feed, but I'd like to be able to have the option to add them to our Facebook galleries so that we may tag people in them. I emailed Christina earlier, she has the name of the photo sharing site that does this. Ask her about it and look into it if you would. Thanks!

                            • 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.

                                  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!

                                  • 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.

                                      In Legacy Smugmug we had the ability to customize our right-click message. This is no longer an option in the New Smugmug, but it should be, especially for the pros who use you guys for their business. Customized right-click messages add professionalism to a site.

                                      • Any chance of getting a "random" setting for slideshows selecting a specific gallery in the new format?

                                        Any chance of getting a "random" setting for the
                                        Slideshow block - when a specific gallery is selected or when images are selected by keyword...using the new format, of course?

                                        The options were available in the legacy version.

                                          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.”
