  1. Organizer -- Visually differentiate between a "collected" photo and a real photo

    In Organizer, when I look at the photos in a Gallery, I can't tell which ones are the "real" photos and which ones are "collected" photos. This would be very helpful and could be achieved by making the Collected photos slightly transparent or putting a different colour of border around them.

      Good news! There’s now a way in the SmugMug Organizer to identify collected or smart photos just looking at the thumbnail. Look for a little arrow icon that will tell you if it’s one of those types of photo.

    • Galleries on IPAD APP do not update.

      Galleries on IPAD APP do not update when you add new photos to a gallery after your first viewing with the IPAD. I like to keep a favorites folder for presentations with clients, and I update this gallery often. Currently the APP will not update after your first view and the only way to update is reinstall the app!

        The SmugMug App will automatically stay synced with all of our galleries and folders.

        If you have any further questions, feel free to contact us at feedback@smugmug.com.

      • 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.

          I would love to see SmugMug integrate photo streaming with Apple TV like Flickr and Mobile Me

            I’m pleased to announce that the SmugMug Apple TV app has been released and can be found in the Apple TV App Store. You may read more about it on our blog: https://news.smugmug.com/2016/11/09/you-asked-we-listened-the-smugmug-apple-tv-app-is-here/

            The SmugMug Apple TV app is the most beautiful way to view photos on your TV.
            • You can browse all your SmugMug folders and galleries right from the app. Now you can amaze people with your photos from your TV.
            • View the latest featured SmugMug photographers right on your TV
            • Follow other SmugMug customers. We make it easy to find friends, family, and people whose work you admire. Inspiration is everywhere you look with the SmugMug family of photographers.

          • make a single photo on user's homepage be clickable to that photo in its gallery

            When I put a single, still photo on my homepage, it isn't clickable to its respective gallery. One can click through from slideshows and thumbnails on the homepage to their places in galleries. It seems that this should be the same with single photos.

            • Show captions in Collage Landscape gallery style

              Collage Portrait shows captions underneath each photo. Why not do so in Collage Landscape too?

              My captions are an important part of the story of the pictures. To show them only in certain viewing modes or gallery styles is unfortunate.

              • display file names below thumbnails in Organizer

                I'd just like SmugMug to replicate Window's thumbnail view in Explorer: the file name displayed under each thumbnail. This will make it much easier when in Arrange or Delete mode, with only thumbnails showing.

                • Add iPhone covers to the merchandise that can be purchased.

                  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.

                  • Play video without opening a popup lightbox window

                    Currently when you click on a video it opens a lightbox popup window to play. I would like the video to play in the main window without leaving the gallery.

                    • Photo cards section needs serious improvement!

                      I'm new to smugmug. I just checked out the photo-card options and I'm very disappointed to say the least! Very few options compared to other services (e.g. Snapfish) and an extremely cumbersome interface. Am I missing something here?

                      • Collage Landscape Gallery Style-- Add the ability to change the photo size

                        You can change the site-wide default gallery view, but you can't change the size of the pictures with the collage styles. Some of my images end up being way to small and the gallery doesn't fill the page.

                          Sorry to be so delayed updating the status of this, since this feature has been available for several years now, but you can change the size of Collage style Gallery photos in the Customizer, by going to “Customize” and then “Content and Design” and clicking on “All Galleries” or “Just this Gallery”, then clicking on the Gallery and setting the size inside the Collage settings.

                        • Offer mounting, texture, and protective spray to prints

                          Before coming to SmugMug, all of my prints 8x10 or larger were only offered mounted, textured, and sprayed. It was a really nice touch that was VERY well received by my clients. Please, please, please!!!

                              • 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.

                                    There is a Recent Photos homepage box designed especially for this purpose. :)

                                  • Randomize Photos in Externally Embedded Slideshows

                                    With the old Flash slideshows, you could have an externally embedded slideshow display photos in a random order. This is not possible with current embedding code. Please bring this feature back as it causes slideshows on our websites and blogs to be incredibly monotonous and stale.

                                    I added this as a new request because the old requests keep getting marked as completed due to there being the ability to randomize a content block slideshow on a SmugMug-based page. This needs to implemented for externally embeddable slideshows to be complete.

                                    • 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.

                                      • improve the gallery cover image feature so the position of the image can be adjusted

                                        I recently started using the gallery cover image option. While I like this feature, it is cumbersome to use - I have to place several images before I find one that is positioned correctly and doesn't remove heads or other key subject elements. It would be great if I could simply adjust the photo vertically to place it in the optimal position. That's all. Facebook has this flexibility on cover photos and so should SmugMug. Thank you.

                                          You can now reposition the Gallery Cover Image. If we are able to detect a Point of Interest within the photo, we’ll automatically center it around that, otherwise you can manually move it up, down, left or right. Some photos will only be able to move up/down, and others only left/right depending on their aspect ratio.

                                          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.
