  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • Bay Photo's Metal Print Mid-Gloss finish

          • 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!

            • add support for multi-currency purchases

              Non US customers do not like purchasing things in US$ because they do not know what it really means for them in trms of true price.

              As such I recemmend that SmugMug provide support for multi-currency within the shopping cart.

              • Include printing on wood (maple) from Bay Photo.

                Bay Photo is now printing on maple with 2 different print choices. These make for a sustainable media that enhances the photo.

                  • sort feature by time taken vs modified...

                    if you have two photographers you have to manually sort the photos to keep them in order of when the photo was taken
                    date is the same - so there is no distinction
                    date modified may be all over the place and will not keep photos in order...

                      We actually sort images by Date Taken all the way down to the time they were taken. If you click the info button on your images you can see the time stamp in your EXIF data and check the sort order based on that info!

                      Have you guys thought about putting iPhone covers in the merchandise section? I have received some requests for those and have been going to an outside vendor, but it would be nice to do it from this site with the pics already there.

                      • Search captions as well as keywords

                        A great feature of SmugMug is that I can use search to find the types of images I'm looking for. But it only searches keywords!

                        If the search function also searched captions, it would save users the frustration of duplicating entry of keywords - of which many will already appear in the caption.

                        Please consider this service!

                          Good news! We do look at captions when searching from a search content block or the SmugMug header. Matches based on title or keyword will usually show up higher in the search results, so you might have to scroll through some of the results, but we do look at and include results based on captions.

                            • enable a direct link to "bio" when using the easy customizer

                              The easy customizer is fabulous except for adding an "About Me" section. I assumed I could simply link to my existing, standard "bio" but that's not feasible (except through a bunch of code, which I don't know how to handle). That means creating a separate gallery to handle the "About Me".
                              However, that means maintaining two separate areas (Bio and About Me) as links to galleries automatically pull in info from the Bio section... Twice the work or else you appear differently from within your own site and when you provide links to content in your site...

                              • make finding "hidden" photos way more efficient, and help prevent mistaken "hides"

                                please develop a quick way to peruse an entire gallery to see which photos i've hidden.

                                as of now the only way to find what i've hidden is to click thru every photo in the gallery until i find that check in the "hide" box. which, in my case, has almost always happened inadvertently.

                                could the designation of "hidden" (in red, to stand out) perhaps be added to the display in one of the arrange options?

                                ALSO: to help me (and i'll bet others) stop making the mistake of unwittingly checking the "hide" box and failing to notice i've done…

                                  • Shortcuts - QRcode friendly

                                    allow shortcuts directly to albums that don't have to be clicked on in a navigation window. E.g. QRcode friendly.

                                      Hi Jnaman,

                                      You can create a QR code from any link – for example using this generator:
                                      http://qrcode.kaywa.com/

                                      Just paste a link to your album and that is it.

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

                                      Take care,

                                      Tom

                                    • "Select a Cover Photo for your Profile"

                                      It would be a good idea to be able to "Select a Cover Photo for your Profile" when indicated. There is no button to click, no way to drag or drop an image, nothing comes up when left-clicking on the mouse, no follow-up instruction to be able to select a cover photo for your profile. Since it's not obvious how to do this, you might consider adding some instructions below the term "Select a Cover Photo for your Profile". I am still looking around for a blog, or a FAQ page, or a forum to figure this out.

                                        Previously you could click on “your Profile” and it would take you to the help page on how to set the profile (it’s in the User Menu → Edit Profile), but we just pushed out a fix so that clicking on “Your Profile” will now actually open the “Edit Profile” where you can set your cover photo. The photo still needs to have been previously uploaded, but setting it should be much easier!

                                        • 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.
