Slideshow music

Will SmugMug please look into adding music to the slideshow?

SmugMug Support Hero,

Will SmugMug please look into adding music to the slideshow? My other website www.RichardDalcinStudios.com has music and it helps so much with the images. Please respond with a positive reply.
Best,
Richard Dalcin

        As a many year Phanfare client it is very disappointing to lose the ability to add my music to my slideshows. If you can't add this straightforward feature to SM by the time my present Phanfare subscription runs out I will have no option but to go elsewhere to get this important feature for my slideshows.

        I'll join this chorus and agree that if this doesn't happen by the time my transfer subscription runs our, then I'm outta here.

        Hi. Love your stuff but miss the music. This is not hard to implement. I look forward to the day I can add music to my folders.

        thanks

        There's lots royalty free music available from YouTube. Not providing the ability to add music to a slideshow similar to Phanfare is pretty lame. I'm looking for phanfare alternatives that offer this feature.

        As a Phanfare customer I mourned the loss of music in my over 50 slideshows I had to recreate. However, I embedded the music separately and the problem is solved.

        I just changed over (because I had to) to SmugMug from Phanfare and am VERY DISAPPOINTED that all of my musical slideshows cannot be used now. I will definitely drop my subscription unless they add the option of music on SmugMug!!!!!!!!!!!

        Really miss the option of not having music. Slideshows seem so bare without it. Also really miss the Ken Burns effect for slideshows. Can't believe smug mug does not allow to add your own music. Converting to a video is not a good option as viewer looses the option to download a picture or order a print or souvenier.

        I agree with the others. One of the best features of Phanfare was the ability to add music to album slideshows. It made a huge difference in the presentation. I'm sure SmugMug can easily do this if they chose. It would be nice!

        you have many new subscribers coming over from phanpare and I saw a forum where 80% of the people were commenting on losing the option of uploading their favorite background music to their photos. it was all part of the price of about $29/year for the basic service. It is a very important option for me personally and i am hoping smugmug strongly considers upgrading for this option with their annual price. My subscription picked up from phanpare runs out the end of June. If i see no movement in upgrading with music option, i will try to find another site with the music option. Please please add this option. i did email smugmug and was advised of the amimoto option which
        it would be $96/year for amimoto so you would have to add that to the annual price of smugmug of $48/yr for basic paln so total of $144/yr for both.
        I am going to look around for a photo site that has music option to see if cheaper. if not will go with your option by end of June.
        thanks for your consideration

        I had over 50 slideshows that told a story in Phanfare dating back to 2006. You can't properly feel the impact of the Denver Zombie Crawl without some White Rabbit or Marilyn Manson. Right? Please consider finding a way as part of the commitment to loyal Phanfare subscribers. Thank you.

        The only feature Phanfare has over SmugMug is the ability to add music to slideshows. On Phanfare, I can upload an mp3 file and use that with a slideshow. It would be sooooo great if that added would be added to SmugMug. Please do it!! Thanks!

        Or what if we could upload our own slideshow? rather than the autogenerated one.
