I suggest you ...

integrate face recognition across all galleries!

We use smug mug to store pictures from events across the country. Integrated face recognition (across all galleries) would help us to find all the photos related to one individual who has participated in many activities!

        Lack of face recognition search is a major deficiency of SmugMug. Clearly, SmugMug has not kept up with other online photo storage services by failing to implement face search. For me, there are more important ("mission critical") features that need to be implemented before face recognition. (1) I need a way to send a link in an e-mail that allows viewing of a range of photos in the gallery, not the entire gallery. (2) Also, the lack of gallery name search in the cell phone app is a major deficiency. However, face recognition will ultimately be required for SmugMug to be competitive.

        This is almost table-stakes for cloud-based photo archives. Please schedule this into a sprint and "get-er-done"!

        Yes. This is a great feature to have considering the fact other major photo sharing (cloud) applications offer this for free (sure there is hidden cost). Search is critical.

        I would love to see facial recognition, or even subject recognition (i.e. fireplace, kitchen, etc.) built in to Smugmug search function.

        I agree. Google Photos, Amazon Photos (prime) and many of the local programs like Picasa and Lightroom recognize faces. It makes image discovery infinitely easier. For example, searching for a picture of my daughter, from two years ago in may. With face recognition, even if I hadn't tagged the image, I would be able to find it, regardless of the gallery it is in.
