  1. Add an option to create secure galleries for clients to log into

    Allow us to secure galleries for clients to log into. The way we did this before is by giving them a password that was the name of the gallery. Something simple that keeps client galleries somewhat private.

    • allow the owner to edit keywords even if "Hide Owner" is selected.

      When I share 'team' photo's with the other parents/players, I always hide the owner so that they don't have access to all my other pictures. However I then lose the ability to add keywords to a particular photo, even if I'm logged in. I can understand why ordinary users shouldn't be able to select keywords, exposing other pictures.

      • Make an easy way to move multiple galleries into a new category

        Right now if you want to move multiple galleries to a new category you have to select multiple galleries, then use the pull down menu to select the category, then gallery to move. You have to do this each time for each gallery move. A simple screen where showing all available galleries would allow you to select all the galleries to move into the new category. It is very tedious to move multiple galleries to new categories at this point.

        • 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

          • Create new albums/galleries directly from the SmugMug mobile app

            I'm snapping a lot of pictures with my iPhone on the go. I would love to be able to create a new album/gallery, ex. "My brothers birthday 2011" and post photos to this album, all from within the iPhone app.

              You can create new galleries from the iOS and Android apps by first browsing to a folder, then clicking the upload icon (looks like a cloud with an up arrow in it), select your photos, then click “Next”. It will ask you to “Select Gallery” and in the top right is a button for “New”. Click that to create a new gallery and upload to it.

            • Private Sharing -- Increase the number of people we can invite using "People I Choose"

              I'm astonished this isn't up here already... but I need more than 50 names for "people I choose" - I have a large family, and this is my "family and friends site" - I LOVE the idea of them having the galleries shared with them on their tablets, etc, but I've had to leave out a LOT of people to my page. For now, I'm hoping they don't notice, but my alternative of asking if they'd like access to my photos is in kind of poor taste :-/ (who's going to say "no"?!?)

              • New gallery style - cover photo style

                I just envisioned a gallery style that I wish existed. It would have one large photo at the top, which we could define (such as the one with the most likes or the most recently uploaded or most recently taken) and underneath would be thumbnails or a collage of the rest of the photos in the gallery.

                In general, the gallery style choices increased wonderfully with the new Smugmug but no more since. We need more!

                • Gallery Cover Photo

                  I would love to have my client's event page look like this:
                  http://erinheartscourt.pixieset.com/miran-brian/

                  We have been trying Pixieset for a few clients and they love the look and feel of the gallery collections. Having a big banner image from their wedding and the simple navigation underneath is great. I would love to continue using Smugmug for many reasons, but the look and feel of Pixieset has me moving over to them.

                  • Make sorting by date taken easier!

                    There should be an easy way to sort a gallery by time the photo was taken.. This seems like the most obvious way to sort a gallery, yet it requires a drop down menu (tools), a pop-out sub menu (arrange), a separate page to load (sort), and a value to be selected from a drop-down (date taken), and finally a click to submit. At least it should be a top-level action in the tools menu!

                    • Allow link to a subcategory with unlisted galleries

                      I create unlisted galleries (of portraits) organized into categories and subcategories (one for each model). They are unlisted so only the models can see their own galleries.

                      When I shoot subsequent sessions, I want to be able to NOT have to provide a new link to the model for the new gallery. Rather, I would like to provide a link at the subcategory level once and for all. This way the model would only need a single link to all their galleries rather than one link/gallery.

                      Currently this only seems to work with public galleries. Could this be done in…

                        • File size limit for Power Account

                          Hi there! I don't find it FAIR for the POWER account to have the same limit file size as the STANDARD has - 12MB, which is rather an annoying limit. Most of my JPG have sizes around 12-13 MB and I am forced to resize and keep two versions. I would buy a PRO account but 24 MB is too much.

                            I am a Mac guy. The greatness of mac is kis (keep it simple). I am switching to SM and it is overwhelming. It would really help us moving to SM to have a section where we could go to begin understanding the layout, the tools, setting up and organizing the site. When Apple did this their sales jump 2fold. The house wife realized she could jump into Mac and have help with only 1 click and not search al over. It would really help me to have classes, videos, helps broken down into 101, 102 etc... and within these,…

                            • To allow the viewer to place an "accept" mark

                              As a photographer we create large quantities of contact sheets so that the customer can select the pictures.
                              On SMUGMUG , the customer can see all the pictures. However it is not possible to mark the pictures as "accepted".
                              That makes it hard to work. I have used comments and star ratings for this purpose, but isn't very easy.
                              A single toggle accepted/rejected would be very welcome per photo.

                                +1 to the comment about our Events. If your client “Favorites” the photos he or she approves of, you should be able to use that information.

                                It makes no sense why you would limit the display name to only the options that you provide.

                                • client feature gallery

                                  Provide the ability to create "Client Galleries" that would allow us to feature fullscreen views of only select photos aimed at specific clients. This feature would have its own link that the client can go directly to without having to sift through all the other photos on the website.

                                  • A search box to dynamically filter galleries

                                    How cool would it be if my clients and the hundreds of their friends and family (wedding) could start typing in a 'search' box on my main SmugMug page and all of those galleries below fly into action to reveal the exact gallery(ies) that matches their search string? They could effectively bypass the clicking through my organized hierarchy to find the desired gallery. Plus, I often do multiple jobs for one client that fall under different categories. This search would break the jobs out of their categories and show them together.

                                    • Display Max Aperture Value of Lens Used

                                      I'd like INFO to include the EXIF data for Max Aperture Value of the lens used. Some of us use LEICA digital range finder cameras. Its EXIF will not include the actual aperture used. Since SmugMug info will only display the (used) Aperture as "n/a", it would be nice to at least also see what type of lens was used to take the picture with.

                                        • Comment email notification digest

                                          Can we get some more details on what was commented on? The comment itself would be great actually. And a small thumbnail possibly of the pic, but mostly the comment itself, and the title of the pic if there is one.

                                          I don't always want to necessarily have to load up smugmug to read my comment (not always at a computer) so it'd be nice to get a quick digest of what was there in an email.
